Tomy Winata Aide ‘Intentionally Disappeared,’ Police Say



By Jakarta Globe on 04:34 pm Jun 13, 2014

Jakarta. A senior police officer has said a preliminary investigation into the disappearance of a senior business associate of colorful tycoon Tomy Winata indicated that the missing executive may have fled, Indonesian media reported.

“Our temporary analysis is that this was not a kidnapping but that he intentionally disappeared,” Jakarta police’ general crime unit head, Sr. Comr. Heru Pranoto, said Friday.

Police did not speculate as to why the executive might have chosen drop off the map.

Wisnu, a director at Tomy’s Artha Graha group, has been missing for a month. He reportedly left his house for the Artha Graha office building in Sudirman, South Jakarta, in a Toyota Camry sedan. He was said to have spent the whole day at his office, leaving at 10 p.m., and has not been seen since.

Wisnu joined the group in 1989 and was made a director at the listed Jakarta International Hotels & Development in 2012. The company operates several hotels, including Hotel Borobudur in Central Jakarta and Kartika Plaza in Kuta, Bali.

The company, founded in 1969, has plans to build the country’s largest-ever infrastructure project — linking the islands of Java and Sumatra. It also plans to construct the country’s tallest building, the 105-story Signature Tower in Central Jakarta.

Heru said the police were still tracking down the whereabout of Wisnu, who has been missing since May 11. He said the police have distributed pamphlets about Wisnu’s disappearance.

“Until now, nobody has reported anything, so, God willing, he is still alive,” Heru told Detik.com. “We did find his cellphone, but he might have others.”

Signature Tower

The Jakarta Signature Tower is to be anticipated reaching high before 2020 in the sky of Indonesia as the fifth tallest building in the world. With its top crown, the main tower will reach 638 meters. It will become the landmark of Sudirman Central Business District (SCBD) with its 111 floors and 7 layers of basement for parking space and MEP facilities.

Since it stands on very deep, soft soil layers of alluvial deposit, the tower has a complex seismic behavior. Furthermore, it is very slender with some architectural setbacks at its corners and this tower is located in one of the most active seismic zones in the world.

As a mega-tall building, the structural lateral load resisting system of this tower must be very efficient and well integrated with the overall design to satisfy the building code requirements in a severe seismic zone. Therefore, this tower uses a “Core- Outriggers-Mega Frame” system including a concrete core, outrigger trusses, super columns and an exterior mega frame consists of the super columns and belt trusses. The tower primary lateral force resisting system consists of a hybrid concrete core linked by steel outrigger trusses at three levels to eight super composite perimeter columns. The main tower secondary lateral system consists of a mega frame with super columns and belt trusses on each face.

Both thickness of the core walls and dimension of the super columns decrease at the upper floors to maximum the usable areas. Super columns are straight at the lower floors and slope gradually at the upper floors to fit the tower profile. The use of super columns connected to the concrete core with outriggers is a simple and cost effective structural system and has been used for tall buildings throughout Asia, such as the 632m tall Shanghai Center Tower, 660m tall Ping An Financial Center Tower, and 421m tall Jin Mao tower, among others.

Jakarta Signature Tower complex has a podium of 11 floors, mostly for retail shops. On its 7th floor, a column free-space is provided to accommodate a ballroom. The roof of this podium has a garden and its accessable by public.
Another tower of 52 floors will be built adjacent to and become an integral part of the main tower and its podium. Expansion joint will be placed between these two towers and its podium above the ground level to accommodate the different structural behavior of these three masses of.

The structural design of this complex was done as a joint effort by Thornton Tomasetti – New York and PT Gistama Intisemesta. Smallwood, Reynolds, Stewart, Stewart and Associates Inc. from Atlanta and P.T. Pandega Desain Weharima were assigned as the architectural designers.

the developer are still committed to build this building even though they admitted they delayed the project 6 month from its planned, the preparation such as the bore and piling technique that acquire more and more attention due to Jakarta geographic situation that located within "ring of fire" so the developer wants to make this building could stand from 9-9.5 richter scale earthquake, here's the article about that, it's in Indonesian

Bagaimana Kelanjutan Proyek Menara Tertinggi RI Milik Tomy Winata?

...
"Itu tetap berjalan. Memang kami agak mundur 6 bulan dari sekarang ini karena masalah soil atau tanah. Ternyata pengeboran harus sampai ke 300 meter. Kita harus pelajari lempengan tanah di bawah 300 meter itu. Bagaimana terhadap fungsi fleksibilitas terhadap bangunan itu sendiri," kata pria yang akrab disapa TW kepada detikFinance di Hotel Borobudur Jakarta seperti dikutip Kamis (17/7/2014).

Selain itu, ada perubahan desain bangunan karena Artha Graha Group ingin meningkatkan daya tahan bangunan terhadap gempa dan angin.

"Kemarin kami ada kajian ulang konstruksi untuk menghadapi skala gempa 9 atau 9,5 skala richter. Kami lagi coba karena kita membangun high rise building ini uji coba untuk gempanya, pengaruh angin. Itu sangat berat terus sama finishing AMDAL-nya. Begitu selesai kita langsung konstruksi," ujarnya.
