Country: China
Height: 220m
Floors: 48

Official news from the developer's site :


Project Report on Jasper Tower(2005/08/09)


After five months of tight construction work, the foundation pit soil excavation work of Jasper Tower project is completed on May 20th, 2005. This means that the structure construction stage of Jasper project has begun.

Since the start of the foundation pit work in January 2005, the quality, schedule and safety of the construction has been very satisfying. This is the result of careful organization and collaboration of all participating parties. At present, the maximum deviation of the position of foundation protection - underground wall is 99.08mm, which is totally controllable. And the deviation of the position of roads and piping layout and the differences of underground water level and pressure bearing water level are all with the controllable scope. The safety of the foundation pit work is strongly ensured.

The diameter of the slab steel bar is quite big (ß∂32). And the under-beams are allocated partially on every floor underground. The thickness of the slab of the main tower is 2.8m. The slab steel bar ends are connected with ground wall earthing equipment, so the binding work of the steel bars is very difficult. However, the managing team of the Jasper project is never afraid of the difficulties. The more challenging the work is, the more excited and hardworking the project team is. As for the current steel bar work, firstly, we are improving the internal managerial system to enhance the sense of quality; secondly, we require the inspector company to strengthen the inspection work to seriously ensure the quality of every procedure; thirdly, when encountering questions and problems of the project, the construction parties will contact the designer in time to solve the problems promptly and properly through team-work.

Another tough job we faced recently was the large scale concrete pouring of foundation slab. It is an inspection on the all parties’ capability and a test on the on-site construction department’s organizing ability. As such, all the parties made thorough preparations for the job. The project department contacted the temperature testing company for the concrete pouring and submitted the testing plan to the inspector and designer for approval. Construction party also provided the organization structure of construction team for approval. The construction party thoroughly planned and controlled the concrete ingredients proportions, raw materials provision and concrete transportation. The intention of all those work was to prepare soundly for the concrete pouring work. By all parties’ collaboration, the concrete pouring work was successfully finished by the end of June.

The fourth supporting equipment has been removed and the structure construction of the four-floor basement is now under critical construction.

We seeded hope in the land of Jasper Tower in spring; we cultivate the land with passion and perspiration in summer; we believe that we will receive substantial harvest from the land in autumn.


News from the developper's site (http://www.china-zrg.com/english/news.asp)

Jasper under the blue sky(2005/12/05)


As the ancient literators say: the natural jasper is like the lotus coming out of clear water. The jade is a symbol of nobility, representing people's good wishes and blessing. The Jasper Tower is just like the beautiful jade of Zhongrong Group, symbolizing Zhongrong's spirit of being friendly, modest, hard working, enterprising and self-improving.

Since starting construction of project Jasper Tower, all the staff in the project department have been holding together and completed the construction of peg, underground diaphragm wall, basement flooring, structural construction of three underground floors as well as well as inspection of deep foundation pit and construction of steel structure, etc.
While the heated construction is under way on the building spot, the management personnel and the workers are all working overtime. Currently, 12 steel poles for the first part of core in the main building have UNDER THE BLUE SKY

been installed, examined and positioned. The colligation work of the steel bars is under way right now. The 18 steel tubes and poles in main building have all been fixed and the concrete pouring and smashing of the steel tubes has been completed. Backout of the first batch of supporting steel bars has come to an end, leaving little for manual backout. Colligation of steel bars in the north of back pouring belt of B1F has been finished. In section II, colligation of girder bars and flooring of templets are under way. Scaffold of steel poles for the sloping girder has been set up. It is planed to carry out concreting and pouring of Section I in the north of B1F from Nov. 3 on.

It is predicted that structural construction beneath ¡À0.000 will be finished by Nov. 15, 2005 and construction of overground main structure will formally start, indicating a new stage of project of Jasper Tower. Main structure will be completed by the end of year 2006; decoration and installation of water, power, air conditioning facilities will be started in the beginning of year 2007; equipment debugging, comprehensive debugging and trial operation of water, power and air condition facilities will start in the first half of year 2008 and in the same year the whole project will pass the examination and acceptance on completion and be delivered to the owners.
In the course of whole engineering management, staff of the project department pool their ideas and make concerted and united efforts to solve a series of technical problems such as the construction of deep foundation pit, consolidation of foundation pit, construction and backout of supporting structure, temperature control of ground floor concrete, and connection of steel bars of underground diaphragm, etc., accumulating precious experience for construction of foundation. Besides, the project department has also made active coordination between construction unit and design unit and trusted professional supervision unit to ensure the construction security and engineering quality of the project with the deepest foundation pit in the minor Lujiazui area. The project has also realized the goal of ¡°no accident in construction and quality¡± and passed the examination and acceptance of building sites of civilized construction in Shanghai. All these above factors make a successful starting point and lay a solid foundation for project of Jasper Tower to ensure ¡°Bai Yu Lan Award¡± and win ¡°Luban Award¡±.

All the managing personnel in the department of Jasper Tower firmly believe that under the leadership of Chairman Ni, we will build the project of Jasper Tower into a landmark project of Zhongrong Group. Through our hard working and accumulating managing experience and with an open mind, a sense of duty and responsibility and energetic enthusiasm, we will make full play of our intelligence and conscientiousness to do our contribution in Zhongrong's fast and steady development.
We will take more pride in telling others: ¡°I am one of Zhongrong family and I am proud of that.

This has been my favorite tower going up ever since it was announced. The best tower along with the WTC in Shanghai and the Al Alam Tower (i hope i got the name right) in Dubai.

If that rendering is accurate this tower will be an awesome addition to Pudong's growing skyline.
