The paper describes in detail the structural solutions adopted in the design of the superstructures of major steel framed buildings constructed on an extremely exposed site. Particular reference is made to the design of a large three-dimensional structure at high level and to the resistance to wind forces provided by reinforced concrete floor slabs acting in conjunction with vertical braced steel frames and an internal reinforced concrete tower structure. The requirements governing the design of the superstructure frameworks are defined and brief particulars are given of a wind tunnel test associated with the high level three-dimensional structure. J.E. Taylor, R.F. Ready and G.T. Williams
