High-Rise Multipurpose Building
Client: Botswana Development Corporation
Description: Stefanutti Stocks Building completed the first phase of the development of the Fairscape Precinct in Gaborone for the Botswana Development Corporation, consisting of basement parking, retail space, office accommodation and a 15-storey high tower with space for penthouse apartments within the apex. The 15-storey tower stands 28-storeys high with each level 4.25m high, floor-to-floor, versus the normal floor dimension of three metres. The building has no internal columns and each floor is supported by the lift core and perimeter diagrid faҫade. The diagrid, which performs the function of structural support, consists of 450 triangular 'diagrid' precast concrete units, each weighing six ton. The units were individually positioned and placed, like puzzle pieces, by one of two cranes during construction.
The Fairscape Precinct was the winner in the “Building Structure > R100 million” 2015 Fulton Awards category.
