Tecnostrutture's technology arrives in India for an important upward extension at the Welcome Hotel Dwarka, a prestigious hotel in the center of the Indian capital.
The esisting hotel structure is composed of a central body of thirteen floors and surrounded by a three-storey portion. The perimeter volumes have been arised, going from three to thirteen floors.
The project consists in placing 10 new floors on the 3 existing ones, in an area with a high seismic risk. Tecnostrutture has therefore designed a structural solution with seismic isolators. This allows to adapt an existing building to both horizontal actions, obviously increased by the mass increase, and to new vertical actions.
