Trust Tower
Abu Dhabi, UAE

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.
