TORRE FINANCIERA PANAMÁ

Original thread by Panasky

November 10, 2010
by mallolarquitectos

The Financial Tower will become a country icon and screened in the international context, it represents and is a symbol of economic strength and pride of the Panamanian nationality. Flagship project that will integrate public and private as a symbol of the new Panamanian institutions.

The project presented has been designed with reference to the characteristics of the area and taking into account inter alia the following objectives:

* The integration in a single building of government offices related to the economic sector, increasing productivity, improving the spatial image and making an impact on institutional strength and prosperity.

* The addition of complex financial sector through the revitalization generated by the transformation of the park on St. Thomas and surrounding areas that generate the vitality that requires the Bella Vista neighborhood and city. It added a cultural trip and a pedestrian bridge linking a future subway station on Avenida Justo Arosemena and the coastal strip, creating a continuous flow of people who benefit from connecting the city with the sea. The Tower is part of the public space sector producing daily activity.

* The proposal suggests the government to implement cultural practices such as libraries and museums in buildings today without activity against the entire hospital Park St. Thomas, integrate open space as part of the complex, the coastal strip and the city.

* Highlight by a monument of large scale urban art (footbridge) with a "tour" historic fifth anniversary of the discovery of the South Sea.

* Make a building with a structural approach clear and efficient post-tensioned slabs and columns specifically tied to an internal structural wall to provide free plants and easy to distribute for any use.

* Make a building with as many features that become sustainable and nature friendly and the city. Other proposed to use solar panels to generate energy that contributes part of the savings in electricity consumption.

* Use materials and high efficiency technologies to achieve economically viable building construction and maintenance

* Additional activities include the basic use of private and government offices as a lookout / observation, event and convention center, a hotel and a food as an added value to its users.

* Using advanced technologies in all engineering specialties to give the building more efficient systems, and reduce fuel consumption and unnecessary maintenance.

* To carry out the project in terms of cost and time period suggested by MEF.

DESCRIPTIVE MEMORY

The tower, consisting of two bodies together and complement each other, reminiscent of the union of cultures, oceans, races, routes, continents and times. His view of 360 degrees to the infinite horizon viewpoint allows up position as the largest maritime scenario useful urban Panama City.

El Mirador at 320 meters is the length of the current Panama Canal locks. The antenna of 426 meters and 72 centimeters in length, is also accurate measurement of the third set of locks, canal expansion symbol. The antenna means and graph a strong signal to the world, the will and financial soundness of Panama.

At night, the lighted walk 500 meters. join the future metro station close to the project, the coastal and ocean going under the building in a friendly gesture to the city allows scrolling through it and ends in a large source of jets that will culminate in sea point focus of this road built by the story and whose most emblematic of Panama dates are recorded as a metaphor for 500 years.

Other Information


This is a 70-storey building topped by an antenna that will give a total height of 427.72 meters, or even to measure future Panama Canal locks (currently under construction).
The antenna means and graph a strong signal to the world, the will and financial soundness of Panama.

On the top floor there will be a viewpoint that is at 320 meters in height, that represents the current locks along the Canal.

will have direct connectivity to Metro line 1 on Avenida Justo Arosemena

The building consists of two bodies that bind to the height of the seventh level, creating a corridor beneath them. That space will be traversed by a pedestrian walkway that will build a future subway station on Avenida Justo Arosemena and come to the sea, by overcoming Balboa Avenue.

The tour will measure 500 meters and milestones with the most important events in Panamanian history.

The proposal provides 27 floors for private offices, 20 for government offices, 9 for a hotel and multi-level technical areas. In the upper floors will be in addition to the gazebo at the top, a restaurant and Skybar. Proposal also stresses the presidential office on the ground 62.

A total of 33 000 provide 200 square meters for offices, 37 000 square 423 meters for private offices, and nearly 20 thousand meters of common areas. In three underground levels that will occupy the space under the tower and the St. Thomas Hospital Park will create 46 thousand square meters for parking.

In a secondary building to be built in an adjacent lot will be a food (food court), 10 floors of parking, and a center for events and conventions to communicate with the street and the main building.

The Government's intention is open this site in 2013 , coinciding with the fifth anniversary of the discovery of the South Sea. Given that only just signed the contract for the preparation of plans, the margin seems tight. The Government hopes that the construction work starting in May 2011. It used a method that will allow the design plans and tender the works in phases, to accelerate the process. Vallarino said that in 30 months (two years) the work could be ready.

Mallol achieved the highest score for Torre Financiera

Rafael E. R. Berrocal
[email protected]

The Mallol & Mallol became the favorite to win the agreement of 7 million 200 thousand dollars in the design of the Financial Tower looking to build the Government.

The building will be located on the ground occupied by the former U.S. Embassy on Avenida Balboa.

The evaluation commission of the tender brief, led by Juan Carlos Fabrega, submitted its report on Tuesday, giving 94 points to Mallol & Mallol, beating his nearest competitor, Pinzón & Lozano, by 10 points.

The third architectural firm, the consortium Kobi, Karp, FIMS & Sum, won 72 out of 100 which was the maximum score.

The three companies reached the final of the competition submitted financial offers almost even, with a difference of only $ 11. Although all below the reference price imposed by the Ministry of Economy and Finance * 8 million dollars for a tower 300 feet high * which seeks to accommodate financial institutions of the state.

Mallol & Mallol scored the highest in three of the categories that were measured for this project: conceptual design, and list of professional experience.

So far neither company has officially stated to have complaints about the process, but one of the three companies disqualified before the technical evaluation to assess today said his legal team not to proceed with a challenge to the public event.

Among the companies downgraded by the evaluation commission are: Planning and Technical Inspections, SA, Consortium and the Consortium Arco Chato CGO, Bermello, Ajamil & Partners Inc.

According to the evaluation committee, these three companies failed to qualify as bank card, financial capacity and problems in the certificate of the Public Register, among others.



I used Google translate, thanks Panasky for all the info.
