Special Feature: 

The unique nature of the building brings up a high structural and construction challenge. The large cantilever of the building creates a natural tendency of the building to laterally displace under gravity loads. This effect would continue to occur due to creep and shrinkage of concrete.


Special Feature of e.construct Service: 
Through comprehensive finite element modeling and design, such effects could be realistically assessed and accounted for in design and achieve safe performance of the building.
