This is SA TECH park which can be used by technology companies.
The building consists of 7 floors with each floor having a height of 3600mm and the built up area is 452.16m2. Ground floor is for car parking. The columns and beams of this building are made of steel which is easy to erect and is a time saver. The steel also provides extra support to the structure increasing its life-span and allowing it to withstand maximum weight that a concrete structure can withstand. The inner side of the building is hollow which provides for a natural lighting for the place.
The outside corners of the buildings are curved so that the air does not affect the structure of the building and it also gives an elegant look to the structure. The outside of the building is full of glazing with polarised glass which will restrict the maximum sun rays falling inside the building, thereby reducing the building temperature. The open area which is located at the centre of the building can be used as a park or as a car park. Two elevators are provided in the building and for the staircase the columns are placed at an equal distance of 4000mm which is provided by a I shape beam which is of height 300mm, web thickness of 15mm and flange thickness of 20mm and width of 300mm and which is placed in the concrete footing of height 1500mm and width of 1500mm and it is placed 1500mm below the ground and which will be able to carry the whole weight of the structure.
The total height of the building is about 25200mm. The total number of columns is 202 & number of beams used is 303. This project is special because it uses natural lighting which will reduce the power consumption during day time.
The top view of the building attracts the most and will become a landmark for the area. It does not have any adervse enviromental impacts and it runs fully on renewable sources. A conference hall is also provided that can be used to conduct meetings and conferences.
