Web Structures’ innovative inter-locking wall system used to create UN Studio tower 

International engineering consultancy Web Structures has worked with acclaimed architectural practice UN Studio to create an exclusive $80m residential development in the heart of Singapore.

In this fluid design of a 36-storey apartment, the structure becomes a parameter in a network of possibilities, generated by parametric design processes. The structure melts into the architectural form. It was designed by Ben van Berkel, founder of the Dutch-based architectural practice.  

Web Structures, brought its concept of 'Fusion Engineering' to the project to construct one of the most exclusive and sought-after addresses in Singapore. The Web Structures team developed a new, innovative inter-locking system to create cantilevered sheer walls staggered across the height of the tower to produce the distinctive folding and interlocking look designed by UN Studio.

Dr Hossein Rezai, group director of Web Structures, said: “It was a fascinating project to work on and one that brought out all the innovation that exists here at Web Structures to turn the true vision of acclaimed architects into building reality.”

The Ardmore Residence development has been built using reinforced concrete and it involved a substantial amount of prefabrication work. The design of the structural frame of the Pontiac Land Group development, which is on a  prime residential site in Singapore, meant it was reduced to four mega columns at its base, with a transfer level at seventh storey height.

Construction took three years from start to finish, with Web Structures’ structural and design engineers involved in the project from concept stage to completion. Apartments in the development are now on the market.
