Design Exercise for 10-Storey Precast Skeletal Frame

ByKim S. Elliott

The exercise is a feasibility study for the design a 10-storey retail and office building using a total precast solution of beams, columns, slabs, staircases, walls and external facade panels to harmonise with the one shown in Figure 12.1. The layout of the proposed building is shown in plan in Figure 12.2 and in cross section in Figure 12.3. The roof has a clear span over the width of the building and is not to be included in the design. Suggested architectural features based on a similar seven-storey building. Plan. Cross-sectional elevation drawn to twice the plan scale.
