Ping An International Finance Center Tower will become the second tallest building in China, at 599m. This building is a 115 story office tower consisting of offices, support facilities, a conference center, retail, and parking. The selected structural system consists of a composite concrete core with steel outriggers connecting to eight super-columns. The exterior frame is composed of seven double-layer belt trusses located at the mechanical and refugee floors. The exterior belt trusses are interconnected with a super diagonal at each exterior face of the building. The project also includes a steel-framed 11-story podium with high-end shopping arcades, restaurants, and roof-top cafes.
