The Structure of the New Headquarters for the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation, Hong Kong

The paper describes the structural design of the new building from inception through to the analyses carried out during the construction period. Particular emphasis is placed on the extensive wind tunnel testing and dynamic analysis and the studies developed from them.
