آسمان خراش خمیده

آسمان خراش

در انتهای سال ۲۰۰۹، دیگر ایتالیایی‌ها نمی‌توانند به داشتن خمیده‌ترین ساختمان دنیا یعنی برج پیزا با ۳/۹۷ درجه خمیدگی، افتخار کنند، چرا که در این زمان در ابوظبی، ساخت آسمان خراشی ۳۵ طبقه، با ۱۸ درجه خمیدگی به پایان خواهد رسید و نامش در کتاب رکوردهای گینس ثبت خواهد شد.
 

این ساختمان که Capital Gate نام خواهد داشت با داشتن ۷۲۸ پنل شیشه‌ای، نمایی زیبا و انحنادار خواهد داشت. این ساختمان تنها قسمتی از پروژه ساخت یک شهرک دور مرکز نمایشگاه‌های ملی ابوظبی است.

برای اینکه این ساختمان در برابر نیروی جاذبه و وزش باد و امواج زلزله تاب بیاورد، ریشه‌ای ۳۰ متری برای آن در نظر گرفته شده است.

یک هتل پنج‌ستاره و دفاتر اداری، کاربری این ساختمان خواهد بود.

Capital Gate construction proceeding on schedule

850 trucks deliver 6,000 cubic metres of concrete over a 30- hour period
 


ADNECAbu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC) has announced that construction of Capital Gate, Abu Dhabi's gravity-defying feature tower, is proceeding on schedule. The latest stage of the construction is the pouring of over 6,000 cubic metres of concrete to create the base of the 160m, 35-storey iconic tower.

Capital Gate850 trucks are arriving on the site adjacent to the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre over a 30-hour period and the concrete will be pushed through five huge pumps which will work simultaneously and non-stop throughout the entire period.

The concrete will be pumped onto an incredibly dense mesh of reinforced steel which has been designed to be especially strong due to the unique posture of Capital Gate. The mesh sits above a complex distribution of 490 piles which have been drilled 30 metres underground to accommodate the gravitational, wind and seismic pressures on the building caused by the distinctive lean of the building.

Simon Horgan, CEO of Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company, the Master
Developer of Capital Gate, said: "This is a landmark occasion in the construction of Capital Gate. The unique nature of this building has meant that the teams responsible for delivering Capital Gate have experienced some immense challenges, which they have overcome through vision, ingenuity and cooperation.

There is nothing standard about this tower. Each room is different, each pane of glazing is different and every angle is different. It was designed to provide no symmetry to inspire both visitors and observers, yet the delivery team, comprised of ADNEC, Al Habtoor Construction, MACE and RMJM, is consistently hitting target dates for delivery."

Capital Gate is scheduled for completion in autumn 2009. When complete it will house the executive 5 star hotel "Hyatt at Capital Centre", Abu Dhabi's first Hyatt hotel. Additionally, it will provide the most exclusive office space in the UAE capital city.

Capital Gate forms a key part of the Capital Centre development, the AED 8 billion business and residential micro city being constructed around the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
