This report is part of the High Rise Early Design study commissioned by EcoSmart to produce the required knowledge for understanding the relationship between the selection of high-rise condominium building structural systems and their environmental performance cost and constructability issues. Stage 1 of the study includes the provision of schematic design drawings and a description of three structural systems for a typical highrise condominium.
The schemes outlined in the Yolles study include flat plate precast floor units and steel framing precast floor units and precast frame and slab on metal deck with steel framing. The Yolles report considers the lateral system for the three schemes and gives a concrete volume comparison for each option proposed.
