Project No. 5926
An exciting high rise in a developing country. This project epitomises the BE Collective team’s ability to complete a multi-storey, cross-continent, cross-language product.
Our team provided structural engineering for these two 25-storey apartment towers located in Talatona, an emerging suburb 15km south from the capital, Luanda. The development comprises 468 apartments per tower, approximately 600 parking spaces, communal areas throughout several podium levels, including two swimming pools, a spa, and spa salons.
Floors were designed as unbonded post-tensioned flat plates, achieving longer spans with less weight, smaller columns and increased NLA. The post-tensioning strand layout was coordinated with integral horizontal services runs within the depth of the slab – in order to satisfy the client’s requirement for reduced floor to floor heights.
