Structural & Geotechnical-A Design of Multi-storey Hotel in Al Aziziyah With Reinforced Concrete Skeleton

Project Overview

From the civilization renaissance of Jordan and keeping up with the industrial and economic development, Amman city is aiming among other cities of Jordan to build up high rise tower as a part of the renaissance. The chamber of commerce is the focal point for investment in eastern province, that’s why it is necessary to build up a high-rise tower that shows the important role that chamber of commerce represent. The chamber is an entity dedicated to securing and enhancing the economic vitality of the eastern province, and their vision for the project is to attract and retain multi-national firms by providing them a stressfree and productivity enhancing work environment on long term lease. There are many different approaches to figure out the structural & Foundation systems in construction. However, every different approach if not well analyzed will be problemcentered, and huge amount of money will be spent to maintain the problem-centered structure. The best super-tall building designs result from the early integration of structural and architectural plans with the mechanical, electrical and safety plans as the development, configuration, and organization of the building can influence the building loads and the overall efficiency of the building. High-rise buildings require that special attention to be paid to all types of loads, in addition to choosing the proper foundation, this attention is not as critical in low-rise buildings.

Project Objectives

Selecting an adequate structural system that satisfies all architectural and safety requirements in addition to keeping feasibility and cost in the reasonable range. In order to overcome this challenge, we performed several investigations regarding different structural members to apply the proper engineering solutions.
The main objectives and stages of this project are:

  • Preliminary design of the structural members.
  • Selecting an adequate structural system.
  • Modeling using ETABS.
  • Geotechnical design of the foundation system.
  • Writing a technical report
