Ramada Queenstown

A six-storey building with over 130 serviced apartment suites and studios, a basement car park, restaurant, conference facilities and a gymnasium. Early co-ordination of the apartments and car parks is important to ensure no costly transfer structures or car parks lost. A ductile eccentrically braced frame system is being used to dissipate energy under the high seismic loads applicable to the area. A shallow foundation solution (due to dense gravel soils over very deep rock) was initially investigated however due to high uplift forces on the frames a shallow piled system will be adopted.
