Construction Of High Rise Building
Construction Of High Rise Building This paper discusses about construction of a high rise building. High rise is a building whose height creates different conditions in the design, construction and operation because of the influence of its tallness. It can also be classified as residential or commercial. Therefore, construction of a high rise building requires a comprehensive study and understanding of the plans, design, construction and operation of physical works and facilities which involves different methods and techniques.
The first part deals with construction industry of high rise building, its process, the current state of the industry as well as the codes and regulations that govern planning and erection of a building. It also covers construction management and contracts important in high rise building engineering and the different roles of the designer and the contractor.
The second part discusses the economics of construction of a high rise. This topic is essential in making engineering project decisions. Design and plan of a building involves costs such as material and equipment cost, labor costs, the total project costs, and the taxes involved.
The rest of the paper is focused on the construction methods and the technologies involved in the construction of high rise from the structural system to the detailed parts of a high rise including excavating and lifting; loading and hauling; paving; concrete formwork; steel structure, pre-cast unit and pre-cast facade, metal and glass curtain walling and the different service systems like electrical and water systems. Under these methods, the underlying techniques and the materials and equipments used for each method are also discussed. The risks and the problems associated with high rise building construction as well as the techniques to eliminate the risks are also covered in this study.
Generally, this study provides essential information and guidelines in the design and plan of infrastructures that involves the methods mentioned above. The quality and stability of an infrastructure such as a high rise building all depends on the proper and appropriate used of the different methods as well as on the type of materials used in the design.
