BUZESTI Office Building

INES developed the full structural design of this 17 story high building which houses working spaces, restaurants, commercial areas and an underground car park. The buil-ding has a V-shape plan view, with two main alignments meeting at an angle close to 90 degrees.

The high seismicity in the region, together with the lack of a regular building geometry imposed by the architects, presented a big challenge from the structural design point of view and required implementation of different horizontal and vertical cross bracings.

The building is composed of 12 floors above ground level with a constant inter-story height of 3.57 m, except for the height between ground level and mezzanine, which is 3.92 m. Concrete slabs are 0.25 m thick except for the ground floor and mezzanine, which are 0.30 m thick. Columns have shear caps 0.50 m thick.

Beneath ground level there are 4 underground floors which count with a constant inter-story height of 2.90 m except for the height between ground level and basement 1, which is 3.05 m. The concrete slabs are 0.25 m thick, and columns have shear caps 0.50 m thick.

For containing the soil a concrete retaining wall with a thickness of 0.80 m has been defined, which is brace during the construction phase using a system of temporary struts, and during the final situation by the different basements slabs.
