Urbana II, 225m x 2 | Proposed

The central core connects to the perimeter structure by beam-free pre-stressed flat slabs supported by permanent metal shuttering to increase speed of construction. Windows and infill panels to be the same height cost of assembly and speed of construction is greatly enhanced.
With these measures, the twin towers are forecast to be completed for occupation in 2 years, an unheard of feat in India

TWISTED TOWER, 300m, 75 fl | Proposed

The structural concept is uniquely designed to achieve apartments free of any shear walls or internal columns, thereby enabling quicker and therefore more cost effective construction, with long span pre-stressed slabs with permanent shuttering to achieve high quality at a speed of 4 days per floor.
