Highest residential tower planned for North India's earthquake zone in Victory Valley
International engineering consultancy Web Structures and Singapore-based architects WOW have been appointed by Ireo, the leading Indian real estate developer behind the 50-storey skyscraper to realise its ambitious vision for the 52-acre Victory Valley development in Gurgaon.
Web Structures is boasts extensive experience in earthquake engineering, allowing the safe construction of tall buildings in earthquake zones such as Delhi. The three towers form the residential centrepiece of a total gross 2,000,000 sq ft floor area and have been designed by internationally renowned Singapore-based architects WOW. Web Structures is currently working on only the tallest tower of the three.
Dr Hossein Rezai Jorabi, Web Structures group director, revealed that the Victory Valley contract for the 500,000 sq ft 50-storey tower is the first in a number of major Indian projects the practice has been appointed on or is in discussion over.
He said: "We see India as a growing market for our skills in helping developers and architects design exceptional buildings in areas where extreme engineering challenges, such as earthquake zones, have to be overcome. At Victory Valley in Gurgaon, the 50-storey building we will be working on is much higher than any other building in the region."
