Which such quality standards in mind, a cast-in-place concrete structure was chosen for this landmark project. As with any residential development, the floor-to-floor height and ceiling esthetics was of great importance for the architect and developer. In order to remove any drop panels at the intersection of the concrete columns and slabs, Peikko shear rails were utilized. These punching shear reinforcement rails increase the capacity of the slab where it is most vulnerable and allows for continuous flat ceilings even around columns. This solution reduces the formwork, reinforcement and concrete cost of the slabs while reducing the overall floor to floor height.
