CTBUH Best Tall Building in Asia and Australasia Award CTBUH Urban Habitat AwardPosted on 09 February 2018
Windtech is delighted to have contributed to both finalists from Singapore: Marina One and Oasia Downtown Hotel. These projects are nominated for the Best Tall Building in Asia & Australasia. In addition, Oasia Downtown Hotel is nominated for the Urban Habitat Award.
Windtech supported Singapore’s Marina One project (pictured above) from the early design stages providing advice with regards to the pedestrian wind environment, design wind load effect on the link bridges and the structural frame, including the effect of load transfer between the linked substructures for the residential components. Windtech also modelled the façade cladding pressures. Windtech helped provide solutions to overcome the challenges for a project with large open public spaces between the towers.
Oasia Downtown Hotel in Singapore (pictured above) was nominated for both the Best Tall Building (Asia and Australasia) as well as the Urban Habitat Award. The unique permeable façade incorporates live plants to create a living tower. Windtech were thrilled to be associated with the façade pressure studies in order to facilitate good design on such an innovative project as well as overcoming the challenge of delivering suitable wind conditions for the elevated terraces without impacting the architectural intent.
