A Ramboll project
The 575-key hotel wing of the concrete frame structure is composed of two rectilinear blocks set in a ‘V’ formation, embracing a curved entrance portico and drop-off zone with water feature. Behind the hotel, the commercial wing extends the building to make a cranked ‘T’ of the whole in plan. In all, the project is 12,000 sq m, including its double basements.
Flexibility was a key driver in the structural design, along with a solution the would enable fast-track construction. The commercial wing features longer spans and larger floor-to-floor heights than the seven-floor hotel, the lower two levels of which are used for public facilities such as function rooms, restaurants and retail. The entrance area and public zone are clad in sandstone.
Mukesh Pritamdasani led the structural engineering team through the design and construction phases.
