CONCRETE

AS ONE OF THE OLDEST AND STRONGEST BUILDING MATERIALS EVER CREATED, AMOEBA TURNS TO CONCRETE TO LIFT US UP TO THE SKY

DESIGN CHALLENGE:
WHILE WOOD IS THE FOCUS FOR THE RESIDENTIAL BUILDING SYSTEM, WE TURN TO CONCRETE FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE RETAIL AND OFFICE SPACE SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITY.   
IN CONCERT WITH OUR WOOD PREFABRICATION GOALS, THE THREE-STOREY RETAIL/OFFICE STRUCTURE WILL ALSO LOOK AT PREFABRICATION SOLUTIONS TO REDUCE OUR CONSTRUCTION TIME. SOLUTIONS SUCH AS: HOLLOW CORE SLABS, INSULATED WALL PANELS, AND TILT-UP WALL PANELS MAY BE UTILIZED TO ERECT OUR BUILDINGS STREET SIDE ELEMENTS. 
DESIGN ASPECTS:
 - DESIGN OF A THREE-STOREY CONCRETE STRUCTURE UTILIZING PREFABRICATED CONCRETE ELEMENTS
 - POSSIBILITY OF DESIGNING OF A MULTI-LEVEL UNDERGROUND PARKADE STRUCTURE TO SUPPORT THE TRANSPORTATION OF GOODS AND PEOPLE IN AND AROUND THE COMMUNITY   
KNOWLEDGE GAP:
CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULE IS THE MAIN FOCUS - HOW CAN WE REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF TIME IT TAKES TO ERECT THE CONCRETE STRUCTURE? THE FASTER IT IS BUILT, THE FASTER WE CAN START ON THE RESIDENTIAL TOWER ABOVE
