Doka has won another landmark, the super-high-rise Lokhandwala Minerva building in Mumbai.
Looming out of a 12-storey parking podium, the skyscraper will top out at 300 m and feature 82 storeys in two separate towers. Named the ‘Minerva’ after the Roman goddess of wisdom, the design for the tower comes from Hafeez Contractors, and bears a similarity to an oversized letter ‘M’. The tower will be for residential use only and aims to be one of the most luxurious addresses in Mumbai. For the core walls, automatic climbing formwork SKE50 and SKE100 will be in use. In order to guarantee an optimal construction workflow, each core will be split into two individual working zones. This increases productivity and guarantees a smooth work-flow. Construction of the building is scheduled to be finished in 2014. With this project Doka continues its expansion strategy in the segment of the world’s tallest buildings.
