Super Tall Building Technology

Lotte E&C is a pioneer in the Super Tall Building market with innovativeness and enthusiasm

Summary

What is Super Tall Building technology?

Advenced Technology

Super Tall Building construction is the latest technology that requires a thorough understanding of structural engineering, environmental science related to noise, vibration, and ventilation, and engineering materials technology to address the full gamut of problems associated with earthquakes, winds, pressure, and load.

Lotte E&C has for years conducted in-depth research on building high-rises over 100 stories. This effort led to the completion of landmark projects such as Lotte World II Jamsil and Busan Lotte Town.

To consistently create future value, Lotte E&C is focusing intensely on establishing efficient work processes. In structure, materials, construction, planning, and accident prevention, we already have in place a proven knowledge-based management system.

Lotte World Tower embodies the latest technologies

Lotte World Tower
  • Perpendicularity Management with GPS
    State-of-the-art technology ensured adherence to the tightest tolerances in vertical construction
  • The top floors’ split crown-like design
    This design minimizes the building’s vibration by dispersing the wind pressure
  • Elevators
    Installed 600-meter-per-minute high-speed elevators
  • Exterior glass walls
    Photovoltaic cells are installed on the glass and generate 500-megawatts of electric power per year
  • Evacuation spaces
    Created five evacuation spaces completely sealed from outside for every 25 floors
  • Concrete
    Ultra-high-strength concrete with polypropylene fibers was used to enhance vertical strength, is used
  • Cooling and heating
    Reduced the need for artificial cooling and heating by drilling 720 geothermal energy holes up to 200 meters underground
