Residential Project Philippines

Client: AWI

Having been asked to review the design of a 17 storey residential building in Manila, Alan studied the Philippine National Building Codes and was then able to produce an economical design using in-house software. This involved some complex seismic and typhoon load calculations – luckily not something we usually need to carry out in Yorkshire!

Our client then invited Alan out to Manila to discuss matters further. After two days of intensive meetings, the pay-off was an invitation to a fabulous party to celebrate Chinese New Year. Unfortunately Alan was the only one of 500 guests not wearing the Chinese lucky colour of red – but luck was on his side anyway as the delighted client accepted the design!
