Baku Residential Complex - Approved






Thornton Tomasetti is providing structural design services through design development phase and building skin services for the Baku Residential Complex, located in the Azerbaijani capital.


The project consists of 46-story and 37-story residential towers, a five-story podium and three basement levels.

Since Baku is subject to extreme wind and seismic forces, the structural floor system is composed of a 200-milimeter flat slab and perimeter with an interior moment frame to resist severe wind and seismic loads. The primary lateral load-resisting system for the building is a special reinforced-concrete shear wall and a special reinforced-concrete moment frame to create a dual system.

The scope of Thornton Tomasetti’s building skin work includes all detailing and structural façade calculations for the aluminum-framed curtain walls, aluminum-framed skylights, steel supported skylights, steel supported canopies, aluminum storefront glass walls, steel framed glass walls and residential balconies.

The curved towers, inspired by the crescent moon, have special requirements for façade panelization that allows for flat, rectangular unitized façade systems with dry silicone gaskets. The towers are approximately 200 meters high with steel-glass crown features at the top.

Parametric modeling tools such as Digital Project/Catia software were used to determine the best geometry for the façade units, thereby reducing fabrication and erection costs.

BAKU WHITE CITY

The project developed by the order of the Executive Administration of Baku City is designed to create the new and modern centre of the capital city.

To the decree of the President of the Azerbaijan Republic Ilham Aliyev approving the “Plan of Integrated Action to Improve the Environmental Situation in the Azerbaijan Republic during the Years 2006-2010 “ and in accordance with the order of the Head of the Executive Administration of Baku City H Abutalibov dated 11 June 2007, it was decided to restore and develop the so-called Black City district of Baku, which will from now on be called Baku White City. The area covering 221 ha will be totally transformed,while also altering and expanding the notion of a modern city centre as such.

The Baku White City master plan envisages the creation of 10 universal urban districts with each of them to offer its residents the best living, working, recreation and entertainment conditions. In accordance with the order of the Executive Administration of Baku City it is planned to rearrange and expand the Boulevard, the gem of Baku that is situated right in the centre of the Baku Bay. The Oilers’ Avenue, one of the most favourite streets of the people of Baku that runs along the Boulevard will be made longer as well.

The modern centre of Baku will be different, thanks also to the new city transportation system. For instance, it is planned to build a new Underground station that will give access right to the central square of Baku White City; it is also in the plan to expand the bus route grid and to run a tram line along the whole coast. Also along the Boulevard should run the all-new water transport line.

The infrastructure communication blueprints were developed and accommodated with the concerned state organisations taking part in the implementation of the project, such as “Azeryolservis”, “Azelektrikshebeke”, “Azerigas”, “Azersu” and “Aztelecom”, to mention but few.

The creation of a new and modern city centre in the capital will provide added opportunities to attract local and overseas investments. The future investors have special privileges kept in stock for them as an incentive.

“Ecol Engineering Services Co” (SOCAR) has started the special polluted land purging activity has been started in the Baku White City area subject to the presidential decree and in accordance with the order of the Executive Administration of Baku City.

The Baku White City Projects involves not only the British company "Atkins" that specialises in engineering designs and the Azeri specialists, but also such luminary architect firms as Foster + Partners and F+A Architects.

Tekfen Construction to build SOCAR’s new headquarter



Tekfen Construction signed a new contract of USD 235 million for the turnkey construction of SOCAR’s (State Oil Company of Azerbaijan Republic) new headquarter complex in Baku. Starting in June 2010, the project is scheduled for completion within 32 months.

Designed by Heerim Architects form South Corea, the two towered project will rise from an elongated, canopy-like podium and snake their way skywards. Curving into each other, the seemingly shorter tower almost looks like its resting its head on the chest of the taller tower, the taller towers peak slightly bending over it in a confident, reassuring manner. The towers will have 32 floors, at a height of 173 metres. Covering an area of 12,000 square metres and providing 100.000 sqm of usage area, the headquarter will mainly house office space but will also have conference and sports facilities, a guest house and retail spaces, food outlets to keep the expected 2000 employees in the tower firing on all cylinders.
