The One Thousand Museum is a high-end, high-rise residential building designed by Zaha Hadid Architects. Located in Miami, Florida, the iconic tower offers unique proximity to the city's arts and cultural district, while overlooking Biscayne Bay. The building contains seven stories of podium parking, townhouse and residential, full-floor penthouses and one duplex penthouse. Amenities include a double-height aquatic center and sky lounge, as well as an indoor and outdoor pool with a wellness/spa level. The building will be cladded in glass fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC).

Scope of Work: 
Design and detailing of GFRC cladding and permanent formwork panels, to support the subject loads of fresh concrete and wind. The basic intent of the value engineering study was to enable the utilization of GFRC by reducing the structural element sizes to make room for the GFRC panel thickness. Value engineering of the structural design has achieved much more than what is required by reducing shear walls thickness as well as exoskeleton member sizes.

Special Feature: 

The unique design by Ms. Zaha Hadid (d. 2016)

High loading criteria on GFRC panels, either from fresh concrete or wind at hurricane borne zone.

Providing design, value-engineering for a prestigious project with internationally-acclaimed consultants achieving several “world’s first” achievements in engineering.

Special Feature of e.construct Service: 
Through the design of the GFRC and value engineering of the structural design, e.construct has accomplished the following: Enabled Arabian Profile Ltd., to utilize GFRC panels able to withstand wind loads capable to act as permanent formwork. e.construct devised a panel mounting system that utilizes/respects the column reinforcements and is simple to adopt during the concrete casting process. Reduced column size to facilitate GFRC panels, as well as a further material, cost and time reduction that greatly benefited the overall time/cost program of the project.
