Ocean Heights 2, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Concept, Schematic and detailed design of 5B+G+5P+105 floors and later on change to 85 floors concrete luxury residential tower in Dubai Marina. The main vertical elements (columns and shear walls) are reinforced concrete, providing stability against wind and seismic activity. The floor slabs are post- tensioned concrete. The stability of the tower is further enhanced by the “outrigger” effects of typical thickened corridor slabs that connect the outer walls and the main central core walls of the building. Chris was responsible for the structural design while working for Whitby & Bird in 2006-2009. Chris wrote a technical report for IStructE in 2011.
