Let's fly into Malaysia for Islamic Culture which represents Unity, harmony, and rationality-Just for a glimpse of the Twin Tower
The Petronas Towers are twin towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia an eight-point star (when seen from the top) Which is Islamic culture represents unity, harmony, stability, and rationality. Its a symbol of the Country, Identifiable Malaysia.That each measure 1,483 feet(452 meters) tall. They were the tallest buildings in the world until 2004 when they were surpassed by Taipei 101, but remain the tallest building in the world. Its the symbol of 21st –century, construction started in 1992 and was completed in 1997.
It contains 33,000 glass panels and 55,000 stainless steel panels illuminating the outdoor, and 29 two-story hoist which is for the 88 floors. There's a skywalk that connects the towers on 41 and 42 ground to walk in a hanging bridge which is 558 feet(170 meters) above the land. coming higher to the examination deck on 86th floor, a reel 1,181 feet(360 meters) above the earth. One can take a clear vision in any directions for miles. But, only a restricted counting of the audience are allowed. The twin tower soul of central. once u step back on the earth don’t forget to have a look at enormous surja KLCC mall at the bottom of the structure. The towers also include designer clothing outlets, technology and entertainment stores, and slangs of eateries and restaurants. The mall also contains aquarium, a cinema an art gallery and the National Philharmonic Orchestra Hall.
The high rise building was inaugurated on 1st April 1994. Internal decors with furniture were completed on 1st January 1996, the shoot of both the towers was completed on 1st March 1993. The first batch of Petronas personnel was shifted into the building on 1st January 1997, after 3 years of its construction. The Prime Minister of Malaysia's Tun Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad Inaugurated it officially on 1st August 1999.
The towers was constructed on site of Kuala Lumpur's race track. Orignal construction of the site was effectively sat on the point of rocky height founded by Test boreholes.50% of the site was spoil limestone and the other 50 % was soft rock. The absolute location was shifted 61 metres (200 ft) to allow the buildings to sit fully on the soft rock. Because of the depth of the bedrock, the buildings were built on the world's deepest foundations. 104 concrete piles, ranging from 60 to 114 metres (197 to 374 ft) deep, were bored into the ground. The concrete raft foundation, comprising 13,200 cubic metres (470,000 cu ft) of concrete was continuously poured through a period of 54 hours for each tower. The raft is 4.6 metres (15 ft) thick, weighs 32,500 tonnes (35,800 tons) and held the world record for the largest concrete pour until 2007. The foundations were completed within 12 months by Bachy Soletanche and required massive amounts of concrete. Petronas Towers' structural system is a tube in tube design, invented by Fazlur Rahman Khan. The costing of importing steel was hight, so the towers were constructed on a cheaper radical design of super high-strength reinforced concrete. High-strength concrete is a material familiar to Asian contractors and twice as effective as steel in sway reduction; however, it makes the building twice as heavy on its foundation as a comparable steel building. Supported by 23-by-23 metre concrete cores and a outer ring of widely spaced super columns, the towers use a sophisticated structural system that accommodates its slender profile and provides 560,000 square metres of column-free office space. Below the twin towers are Suria KLCC, a shopping mall, and Dewan Filharmonik Petronas, the home of the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra
