High Art



Lakhta Center Construction Director Elena Morozova told us about unique features of Gazprom tower.

What is the status of the construction at the moment and when will it be completed?

The completion dates have not been changed, the completion is still planned for late January 2018, it relates to the structures of the facilities and finish of all public areas. By June/July the underground part will have been completed and the first overground floor of the multifunctional building will be completed. Next summer we plan to “look above ground”.

How open will the complex be?

Undoubtedly access to offices will be possible via security checkpoints. However employees and visitors’ flows of the public areas are separated. Observation decks, restaurants, cafes, children’s center, multifunctional transformable hall, SPA parlour, fitness club, health center, bank are all public areas. The availability of public transport and convenient car parks will grant an opportunity for everybody to visit the complex.

Tell us about security.

It is the most interesting issue because it is secret even for us. For the aim is not easy: to provide the highest level of security and unimpeded access of visitors to entertainment infrastructure. But we are confident that everybody will fee comfortable and safe in our complex.

What records has Lakhta Center beaten?

We think about world record in relation to the lower slab of the box foundation. In relation to the quantity of concrete (24,000 cu.m.) we exceed the largest slab poured in Las Vegas under the Venice Hotel. The same quantity of concrete is required to build a residential block of flats. I do not know whether we will be included in the Guinness Book of Records. In Europe our project is the tallest building. The facility will definitely be a landmark. We are not entitled to look bad.

the foundation of a multifunctional complex ready

The foundation of MDs "Lahti center": done!
26/12/2014

Quote:
In mid-December started pouring the foundation adjacent to the tower MD - multifunctional building "Lakhta center."
The complex "Lahti Center" includes not only the tower, but also a large building, consisting of two buildings connected by a courtyard atrium. Northern and southern enclosure MD area will even slightly exceed the actual skyscraper itself.
Buildings buildings no less interesting and complex as the idea of ​​the architect and the construction technology. They are scheduled with a height difference of 38 meters to 80 meters. Get an ensemble that will add depth complex, because dominant on this site requires architectural support. The construction of the MD shorter than the erection of the tower, about one year.
PTP complex "Lahti Center" at the bottom has a complex shape of a boomerang instead of a rectangle. And not just a boomerang, and expanding to the "tail".
The maximum height of the north side of 70 m from the south-west side - 83 m. The building will have a basement and a variable number of floors above ground.
Design features MDs
Cooker
The building is on a single slab grillage and divided cross-temperature sedimentary seam dividing the building into two equal parts for the super-structure. Grillage - solid plate - significantly reduces the non-uniform intensity of the load on the ground.

Reference:

Grillage (it. Rostwerk, from Rost - grill and Werk - construction) - the top of the pile or pier foundation that distributes the load on the bearing elements of the building. Grillage made ​​in the form of beams or slabs that combine headroom columns (piles) and employees of the supporting structure erected for the construction elements.
MDs foundation - it piles + grillage
Piles of two diameters - 1180 mm and 880 mm. The length of the piles is 31 m. The number of piles - Piles 848. MD - bored, made by drilling in the inventory section betonolitnyh casing, which is then lowered to the reinforcement cages. Next - laying concrete mix, which is conducted by vertically moving the tube.
Pile foundation MDs made with variable pitch. The area of ​​the foundation can be divided into 12 zones. In areas of high stress relative to the mean - thickening of the piles. In areas of low loads, respectively suction piles. The project is based anchorage head piles in the grillage slab. Pile field combined single monolithic grillage slab.
The thickness of the foundation slab - two meters. Area - 22 000 square meters (three football fields).


HOW covering the site PLATE

Pouring concrete in the foundation of MDs preceded by thorough preparation.
First, a unique recipe designed concrete.

Reference:

Concrete - a mixture of cement, sand, gravel and water. It is a versatile building material for the foundation. However, each skyscraper your recipe concrete. For example, in the construction of Burj Khalifa was added ice and the Petronas Towers - quartz.
And everywhere there were a lot of concrete. Under the 828-meter Burj Khalifa - 45 thousand. Cubic meters, and under each 452-meter tower Petronas - 13 thousand. Cubes. For three days there was a continuous fill.
Secret zest to the recipe Lahti concrete yet failed to learn. But the number of MDs concrete - among the world leaders: on the stove will go 44 thousand cubic meters, only slightly less than that of the tallest building on earth, the skyscraper Burj Khalifa.


Secondly - held "dress rehearsal." Trial balloon, or rather, a trial "cube" builders filled in order to test the technology and blends.
To avoid the complexities of the fill plate MDs divided into eight parts (zahvatok) and each filled separately. And to offset appearing in the joints zahvatok cold weld - in these places added reinforcing rebar.
Fill zahvatki first began late in the evening December 12, 2014.
The work went all night and the next day. Nine concrete plants of St. Petersburg in different parts of the city worked only fill MDs "Lakhta center." Two concrete plant was built on the construction site itself - in "steps" of availability. Logistics thought out in advance, choose the "neprobochnoe" the week to possible congestion avtomiksery not detained on the road and, in turn, does not complicate the traffic situation on the roads.
Each car comes to the site, took control weighing, removal of concrete samples, check the temperature of the mixture and mobility. Only after this mixer in turn allowed to fill.



Reinforcement


All from avtomikserov


Turn defended ...


Concrete pumps from in which he poured with mixers coming-to-bay, which is carefully covered awning and using heat guns kept in a temperature higher than + 5 C.


Under tents. It's done - have to wait.

Investing money in a multifuctional complex (offices, entertainment, public areas etc) is not a waste of money, it's an investment - precisely what is needed now - for the city and for the company that needs to diversify its assets.

wonder how the oil situation will effect these buildings.
virtually in no way.
After the last significant oil-prices fall in 2008-2010 tower height had risen up by 15,5%. However at the current phase of the project something similar is unrealistic.

I think the article heading in the Bassik's post above was pretty confusing. Anyway, the pouring works at the foundation of the multifunctional building are nearing the final stage at the moment.

Anyway Lakhta comes from Finnish word Lahti which means bay or harbor. In other words, town of Lahti in Finland and district of Lakhta in St. Petersburg are the same names.
