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: 
e.construct completed the design and detailing work of both GFRC permanent formwork and cladding. Value engineering was also performed to decrease structural member sizes to enable the use of permanent formwork without effecting the architectural design.
