Taking precast concrete to the limit

Technical Lecture Series

Bella Sky Hotel in Denmark is an elegant landmark building that exceeds the limits of how far a structure should lean.
Vertical load bearing precast walls, hollow core slabs, and precast beams and columns make up the two 23-storey towers of the hotel.
Discover the challenges of designing a leaning precast building, including:
  • How 15-degree lean created an enormous overturning moment
  • The enormous forces leading to severe reinforcement congestion
  • The need to redesign standard precast joint details
