Facts

  • This project employed several unique and at the time ground breaking construction technologies.
  • This tower was built from the top down, meaning that after the central core was built, the floors were suspended from three cantilevered arms with the top floors added first, followed by each lower floor.
  • The Standard Bank Centre, headquarters of the Standard Bank of South Africa, is located at the heart of Johannesburg's financial district.
  • It is organised into three hanging volumes of nine office floors each.
  • The respective floors above with 5.40 m high cantilevers house the air-conditioning plants, a cooling plant as well as the transformer station.
