PAVILION DAMANSARA HEIGHTS RT1, RT2, RT3

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The RT1 | RT2 | RT3 are a three block 70-storey 253.35m-high tower development inclusive of 8 basement levels and 7 levels of elevated car parking and a reinforced concrete transfer floor. The building superstructure consists of RC flat slabs, RC core walls and RC shear walls within the residential units. These shear walls are subsequently founded upon a transfer floor which separates the residential floors from the elevated car park and facility floors beneath, transferring both the vertical and lateral load functional framing systems.

VERTICAL AND LATERAL LOAD PATHS AND SHEAR WALL OPTIMISATION

Value engineering figures achieved on this project include: -


  • core and shear walls concrete quantity reduced by 10,915 m3 from 67,600 m3 to 56,685 m3

  • core and shear walls steel quantity reduced by 6,841,170 kg

  • reduction of embodied carbon CO2e from concrete of 3,929 tonnes and steel of 12,998 tonnes

  • estimated material savings of RM 27,762,945


Often in our value engineering exercises, the factor of safety of the building is increased. This is because the building is only as strong as its “weakest link”. Thus in simple terms, the value engineering exercise increases the capacity of the “weakest link” and reduces the capacity of the “stronger links”. The graph of capacities with respect to demands are presented hereafter with respect to the storeys that the building carries.
