GMS was hired as a subcontractor for Halvorson and Partners to perform structural
design for this new 912 ft reinforced-concrete office tower, which is part of the
centerpiece of a 7,534,737 sf mixed-use development in Abu Dhabi. The 59-story tower
floor framing consists of one-way slabs spanning to post tensioned beams. The lateral
system is a dual system composed of concrete core shear walls stiffened by two belt
trusses at the perimeter, and a tube frame at the perimeter composed of columns and
spandrel beams at all levels.
