Project description:
A complex of four semidetached warehouses, located in Lakatamia, Cyprus. The basement structural system consists of perimeter retaining walls and inner concrete columns elevator cores. A composite scheme was adopted for the superstructure, being composed of steel columns and concrete shear walls, to meet the architectural requirements. The insertion of a diagonal bracing system, at a certain height of the one side of the building, was considered necessary to counterbalance the significant stiffness of the opposite side, due to the existence of the shear walls.
