DSEC Commercial Tower
The development comprises a ground floor, 19 floors of office space, a leisure deck and a basement car park. The podium is designed to house retail outlets along with restaurants, cafes, health & leisure facilities and parking for additional cars. In total, the building provides parking spaces for 651 cars.
The development has 6 components: the tower, leisure deck, restaurant on the podium roof, retail and entrance lobby on the ground floor, and car parking facilities at both podium and basement level.
Two distinct components – the tower and the podium.
Lateral forces generated due to natural forces need to be deflected into the ground without effect to the overall structure. In such cases vertical and lateral stability is crucial and is taken into account by a number of factors.
The location of shear walls and the number of columns have been modified and lateral resistance caused by earthquakes and wind activity forces are provided by the central core and the number of shear walls.
