VIJAYAWADA: The five tower multi-storied Secretariat being built in Amaravati is set to have many firsts to its credit. The Andhra Pradesh Capital Region Development Authority (APCRDA) said that it is the first Secretariat in the world to be 212 metres tall and the first building in the country to have a twin elevator system and the first to have a rooftop helipad. It is already known that the upcoming Secretariat is the first tower to use diagrid structural system instead of the conventional columns.

APCRDA commissioner Cherukuri Sreedhar said the tower with 50 floors will be the tallest Secretariat in the world. “We are building five towers — four 40-floors tower and one 50-floors tower. The building is going to be about 50 metres taller than the United Nations Secretariat Building in New York, which is around 152 metres tall,” the commissioner said.

The new Secretariat of Andhra Pradesh would be the second tallest government building in the world after the Metropolitan Government Building in Tokyo, which is 243 metres high.
Another unique feature of the five-tower building, which is being built on a sprawling 41 acres of land in Amaravati, is the twin lift system. “For the first time in India, we are going for twin lifts. Usually there will be only one car in each shaft, but we will have two cars. There will be in-built intelligent system, which ensures efficient and smart vertical transportation,” Sreedhar added.

He also appraised Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu for incorporating the unique features of the Secretariat at the CollectorsÂ’ Conference held on Thursday and Friday.
The APCRDA chief also maintained that the Secretariat, for which works have already commenced, will be the first one in the country to have a rooftop helipad on the 15th floor, above the Chief Minister’s office. “A new technology, diagrid structural system, is also being used for the first time in our country, where there will be no columns to ensure more space,” Sreedhar remarked.

As per APCRDA officials, the execution works have already commenced. “The excavation works for all the five towers has been completed. The raft foundation has also been laid. The superstructure works for the fifth tower, which has the CMO and 50 floors, will begin from mid-December,” another senior official added. The APCRDA officials are planning to ensure that the major share of works of all the five towers are ready by May 2019.

Secretariat raft foundation to set new record

http://www.newindianexpress.com/stat...d-1910905.html

Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu will launch the works related to the raft foundation of the five-towered Secretariat in Amaravati on December 19.

Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu will launch the works related to the raft foundation of the five-towered Secretariat in Amaravati on December 19. Andhra Pradesh Capital Region Development Authority (APCRDA) claimed that the raft foundation to be laid for the Secretariat, having 40 to 50 floors, will be the biggest in the country.

In the review meeting held on Wednesday, APCRDA Commissioner Cherukuri Sreedhar explained to the Chief Minister that the foundation was set to create a record as the India’s biggest raft with 12,000 cubic metres volume and a depth of 13 feet. He also elaborated on the features of Secretariat, designed by Foster + Partners. “All the five towers, having a built up area of 69.5 lakh would be built on the same raft foundation, engaging thousands of workers, hundreds of machinery and tonnes of construction material,” the APCRDA Commissioner said.

The officials also unveiled the designs of the NTR Memorial proposed atop Neerukonda hillock in the capital region. The memorial with 32-metre-tall statue is estimated to cost `406 crore. While the statue, proposed to be cast in bronze, will cost `155 crore, the remaining will be required for the development of facilities including amphitheatre, star hotels, food courts, museum, a 500-seater auditorium, selfie point, shopping area, Neerkuonda reservoir development and others. The officials added that the memorial will come up in 14 acres of land.

The officials said that the funds for the same will be majorly pooled through donations, for which a trust will be formed. Naidu told the officials to develop the area not only tourist space but also a commercial centre.

Giving out the details of those who purchased HappyNest flats, Sridhar said that 659 from across the country booked them. “Among the people who booked, 175 were from the US, 13 were from Singapore, 12 from the Gulf countries and seven each from Australia and the UK. Another 27 people were from Qatar, Canada, Bahrain, Malaysia, Oman, Saudi Arabia and other countries. In India, 231 people from Telangana and 105 from Karnataka have also booked them,” he said.

Free Amaravati tour programme soon
Vijayawada: The State government has approved the launch of the programme for free tour of Amaravati city by APCRDA which will be in the lines of the ‘Polavaram Yatra’ (a free tour of the national project). The date of launch will be announced shortly. The expenditure for the tour would be met with APCRDA funds.
