Boston Properties hired architect Skidmore Owings and Merrill LLP (SOM) and Arup to design a 40-storey tower that includes office space, a green roof, two podium levels, and two basement levels. Our design incorporated an innovative viscous damping system into the outrigger and belt truss at the crown of the building, the first of its kind in New York. This damping system reduces the building motion during wind storms, and enabled the steel tonnage to be reduced by 10%, resulting in a cost savings of $5m. The integration of seven small viscous dampers into the mechanical space at the top of the building preserved valuable space within the building that would have otherwise been occupied by a tuned-mass damper, thereby maximising rentable space for the landlord, Boston Properties.
Arup is collaborating with NBBJ, a global architecture firm, to design the new 1.1m ft2 building for Samsung AHQ(DS), located in California’s Silicon Valley. The project will be pursuing LEED certification.
The award was announced last night during a ceremony at Washington DC’s Grand Hyatt. Arup’s chairman for the Americas, Mahadev Raman, and Washington DC group leader, Greg Giammalvo, accepted the award.
