64 HaShoftim Street

Location: Ramat HaSharon

Client: Bhari

Architect: Bar Orian Architects

Period: 2016-2018

Sector: Residential

Structural design of 4 storey high-end residential apartment building with a basement car park.

This structure leant itself to a reinforced concrete frame with flat slab construction, founded on piles.

A complex series of transfer structures were used to accommodate the non-standard architectural layout. Reinforcement was detailed in 3D using our BIM model to aid the Contractor in visualisation, reducing issues on site.


Arlozorov Underground Station

Location: Tel-Aviv

Client: NTA

Architect: IBI Architects

Period: 2011 - Present

Sector: Transport

Arlosorov Station is the fifth in a series of ten underground stations on the 23km Red Line, Tel-Aviv's new light-rail system.

An underground building of reinforced concrete, flat-slab construction, comprising of water-tight diaphragm ‘outer-box’ walls, to facilitate temporary works requirements during ground excavation, allowing for the construction of the main station inner box.

The outer box has a series of temporary inner struts and waling beams to support its walls during the construction process, requiring careful detailing and construction sequence coordination. The high water-level provide large buoyancy forces on the base of the structure, necessitating a reinforced concrete ‘plug-slab' at the base of the station, restrained by tension piles.


Nir Towers

Location: Petach Tikva

Client: Electra

Architect: BLK Architects / Ami Gvertzman Architects

Period: 2015-Present

Sector: Residential, Mixed-Use, High-Rise

Structural design of two, 22-storey high-rise residential towers, on top of low-level shops and below-ground car parking.

A reinforced concrete frame was used, with optimised flat-slabs within the residential areas, supported on an innovative and economical diaphragm-wall foundation solution

The residential towers spring from podium level, with architecturally influenced diagonal precast concrete struts supporting a base transfer slab.


Sports & Leisure Complex

Location: Pisgat Ze’ev

Client: Jerusalem Municipality

Architect: V5 Architects

Period: 2012-2018

Sector: Leisure, Public

Structural design of a large public sports centre and swimming pool complex in Jerusalem.

A light-weight structural solution was proposed to accommodate the intricate architectural detailing and varied functionality.

Steel trusses, supporting the swimming pool roof were required to achieve long spans, whilst precast, prestressed Hollowcore planks, on reinforced concrete beams were used to support the floor slabs elsewhere.

The structure was expressed through the architectural façade with full-height, slender steel columns, which required careful detailing to ensure they did not buckle through vertical loads.

A piled foundation solution was proposed to suit the local ground conditions.


Pninat Lev Ha’Ir - Old Central Bus Station

Location: Rishon LeZion

Client: Tzarfati Zvi & Sons Ltd.

Architect: Tom M Leitersdorf Architects Ltd.

Period: 2006-2009

Sector: Residential, Mixed-Use, High-Rise

Structural design of a mixed-use development on the site of the old central bus station in Rishon LeZion.

The base structure consists of 2 stories of below-ground parking and 2 levels of shops, which act as a transfer podium to support two, 17-storey residential towers.

The structure is a reinforced concrete frame. The residential floors have a regular column grid with long spans, which lent itself to an efficient system of one-way spanning slabs, supported by downstand beams.

The towers were stabilised against wind and earthquakes with two coupled lift and stair cores and founded on piles.


Sun Hotel

Location: Tel Aviv

Client: G. Group

Architect: Elisha Rubin Architects

Period: 2013-2015

Sector: Mixed-Use, Residential, Commercial

Structural design of an 8-storey mixed-use building with a 3-storey basement car park.

The structure is of reinforced concrete, flat-slab construction. Good existing ground conditions and clever structural analysis allowed us to propose an economical raft foundation solution, mitigating the requirements for bearing piles.

The bottom 2 stories are commercial use, whilst the upper stories are residential. As such, transfer beams were required to accommodate the different column layouts at the change-of-use level.

A series of non-structural, architectural feature columns were incorporated across the low-level façade. A rigorous long-term deflection analysis was required to ensure these were not loaded by the floor slabs above.


King Solomon Street

Location: Kiryat Ono

Client: Azorim

Architect: Speizman Chassel Architects

Period: 2009-2011

Sector: Residential

Structural design of a 6-storey residential block, with a single storey deep basement car park.

Reinforced concrete framed construction was used, with efficient slimline flat slabs, supported on piled foundations.

The development features an architectural roof pergola, formed using reinforced concrete.


HaGosh HaGadol

RF - Hagosh Hagadol.jpg

Location: Tel-Aviv

Client: Minkowitz

Architect: Ronnie Mugabi Architects

Period: 2010-2012

Sector: Residential

Structural design of two, 11-storey residential blocks, with a 3-storey shared deep basement car park.

Reinforced concrete, flat slab construction was utilised, and the building was founded on piles.

The floor slabs have set backs at every level. The column grid was closely coordinated with the Architects, mitigating the need for transfer structure within the superstructure, simplifying the design and reducing construction costs and time.


Ashdod Southern Quarter

Location: Ashdod

Client: Azorim

Architect: Uri Zerubavel Architects

Period: 2009-2014

Sector: High-Rise, Residential

Structural design of two, new-build 22-storey residential towers, with a shared basement.

The development is of reinforced concrete construction, utilising slimline flat-slabs to reduce the load on the piled foundations and facilitate the building services distribution.

Thicker slabs have been provided within the penthouses, to enable longer spans, accommodating the column free space requirements.

The buildings were designed to resist wind and seismic forces, using a coupled system of shear and core walls. A rigorous stability analysis was undertaken, using advanced software, to limit the sway of the structure mitigating cracks in the façade and ensuring comfort of the residents in the upper floors.


Ne’eman Towers

Location: Tel-Aviv

Client: Azorim, Efrati Madpis & Buyers Group

Architect: Canaan Shenhav Architects

Period: 2009-2014

Sector: Residential

Structural design of three, 13-storey residential towers with a shared basement car park.

The three towers are of reinforced concrete, flat slab construction and connected by two, 3-storey low-rise buildings with movement joints. Transfer structure was required at ground floor to accommodate the change of column grid to maximise the number of parking spaces. Cantilever feature balconies were designed to limit long term deflections to allow for extensive use of glazing.

As the complex is in close proximity to the sea, a piled foundation solution was considered appropriate.


Shaked Compound

Location: Netanya

Client: Tidhar Construction Ltd

Architect: Farhi Zafir Architects

Period: 2003-2005

Sector: Residential

Structural design of three, 15-storey residential towers, with a shared car park, located close to the sea.

The development is of reinforced concrete, flat-slab construction, supported by shallow foundations.

As this series of towers was located close to the sea, protective measures were required for the concrete. This reduced the short-term maintenance and ‘whole-life cost’ of the structure.


Neve Monosson Towers

Location: Yehud-Monosson

Client: Ashdar Building Company

Architect: Tishbi Rozio Architects

Period: 2011 - 2015

Sector: High-Rise, Residential

Structural design of 5 residential, 17 storey towers, with a two-storey deep basement car park. This was undertaken as part of a larger scheme, involving 5 additional towers.

The structure was formed in reinforced concrete, implementing flat-slab construction in the residential areas to achieve a flat soffit. This mitigated the need for downstand beams and reduced the construction period. A transfer deck was required between the residential and car park areas to maximise the number of parking spaces.

The slab was optimised to an incredibly thin depth, to allow additional stories to be built within the approved height of the building. Careful detailing of the reinforcement was required to mitigate long term deflections to the cantilever balconies.


Ir Yamim Towers

Location: Netanya

Client: Tidhar Construction Ltd

Architect: Tishbi Rozio Architects

Period: 2009-2011

Sector: High-Rise, Residential

Structural design of three, 18-storey residential towers with below-ground parking and a shared landscaped podium at ground level.

The development is a reinforced concrete frame, utilising slim-line flat-slab construction. We were able to mitigate the need for costly piled foundations by proposing a deep ground-bearing raft solution.

The stability of the towers against wind and seismic forces was achieved using a series of reinforced concrete shear walls. These were strategically located to avoid the perception of sway for the residents in the upper floors.


Beit Avichay

Location: Jerusalem

Client: Tafnit-Wind Ltd

Period: 2007 - 2013

Sector: Commercial

The Elephant Junction

Location: Bat Yam

Client: Nitzan Inbar Manegment Ltd

Architect: Feigin Architects

Period: 2013 - Present

Sector: Hospitality & Leisure, High-Rise

Structural design of a hotel overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The hotel comprised of two, 25-storey towers, with a shared podium, housing communal areas and parking.

The structure is generally of reinforced concrete, flat-slab construction, founded on a piled raft. There are a number of areas where pre-stressed concrete was utilised to achieve longer spans, allowing for column free spaces whilst maintaining an efficient slimline slab depth.

This high-rise structure was stabilised against wind and seismic loads, primarily through a series of concrete walls, located within the lift and stair cores. Rigorous computer analysis was required to mitigate the need for additional shear walls, as the core was eccentric to the centre line of the structure.

A light weight steel roof structure was designed to accommodate the parametric architectural requirements of the roof.


Savyon by the Lakeside

Location: Netanya

Client: Africa Israel Residences

Architect: Tishbi Rozio Architects

Period: 2013 - 2017

Sector: High-Rise, Residential

Structural design of a 32-storey residential tower, with a two-storey basement car park.

The structure was formed in reinforced concrete, implementing flat-slab construction in the residential areas to achieve a flat soffit. A transfer deck was required between the residential and car park areas to maximise the number of parking spaces and was founded on a piled raft.

The slab was optimised to a thin depth, to allow additional stories to be built within the approved height of the building. The feature cantilever roof structure was formed of tapered reinforced concrete beams with architectural cladding.

The plan geometry and high-rise aspect of the building lead to a complex stability system, primarily of RC shear walls to resist wind and seismic forces.


Beach Hotel

Location: Bat Yam

Client: Nitzan Inbar Manegment Ltd

Architect: Feigin Architects

Period: 2013

Sector: Hospitality & Leisure, High-Rise

Scheme design of a 45-storey tower. The upper stories are to be residential hotel space, whilst the lower levels are to be communal areas, including a swimming, with an underground car park.

The proposed structure is generally of reinforced concrete construction, founded on a piled raft.

Pre-stressed concrete slabs are to be utilised throughout, to achieve long, column-free spans at with a reduced slab depth.

The lateral stability of this high-rise tower is to be achieved using reinforced concrete shear walls.
