The architectural form of the Tencent Seafront Towers with its varying geometry and orientation of structure presented many challenges for the structural engineer in both the design and construction of the project. The twin towers are joined at three locations by link bridges that meet the buildings at different angles along their height. Careful thought and resolution of the different connections between twin towers due to the geometry and loading were resolved to produce an efficient holistic structure. The extensive design considerations for the construction of the linking bridges was also made possible through the contribution of the structural engineer to this project. The development also achieved LEED Gold.
