Karle Zenith
Three residential towers in Bangalore

A Ramboll project

In one of the tallest residential developments in North Bangalore, the Karle Zenith project houses 396 apartments in three towers.

Each tower comprises three basements and 36 floors, and they are linked together with walkways between levels 34, 35 and 36. The design calls for a helipad on the roof terrace of one tower.

Various optimisation strategies have been adopted in the structural solutions for the concrete frame towers, including a client-led investigation into cost-effective ways to provide increased flexibility in the planning of the lower floors.

To speed up construction, the Mivan aluminium shuttering system has been employed, which enables the casting of columns, beams and slabs in one go and provides a high quality finish. The column grid is quite dense at 8m x 8m, based on the need for flexible parking layouts at lower levels. Transfer structure above the parking levels supports the residential floors above.

Whitby Wood’s Mukesh Pritamdasani led the structural engineering team.
