Value Engineering Post-Tensioned Transfer Plate

This document presents the complete costing exercise of transfer floors for high-rise buildings of mixed use on two high-rise projects and compares in detail the economies of designing them in conventional reinforced concrete (RC) and dual-cast post-tensioned concrete (PT). The PT cost savings are presented in the Executive Summary with savings in excess of 50% of the original RC cost.
