Federation Tower Complex in Moscow. Courtesy Mirax Group.
Rising 365 meters, this 93-story skyscraper provides accommodation for Class-A offices, a five-star Hyatt hotel and luxury apartments. It will become the centerpiece of the new Moscow International Business Center.
Adjacent to the 93-story East Tower is its 66-story twin, the West Tower. A 448-meter stiletto-like, glass dressed elevator mast and spire visually unites these two sail-shaped buildings. Connecting the two towers and the mast are pedestrian bridges at 32nd and 64th floors and the observation platform at the 87th floor. The Federation Tower is the first project in Russia to utilize super high-strength concrete technology. Three levels of steel outrigger truss systems, placed at the bridge levels, distribute gravity and wind loads between the core and perimeter framing. The project is designed and constructed considering modern requirements for occupant safety in super high-rise structures.
In addition to structural engineering services, Thornton Tomasetti is also providing curtain wall consulting services and specialty glass and steel design. We have used computational geometry and building information modeling techniques to develop innovative and efficient designs for the tower caps, integrating the structure with all necessary mechanical functions.
