BACKGROUND
INFORMATIONS

Petronas Twin Towers were deliberated by Cesar Pelli who is an Argentine-American architect. In 1998 it was completed and turned to be the tallest structures in the globe on the time of completion. These 88-floor towers are put up greatly of reinforced concrete with glass and steel fa?ade intended to look a lot like the motifs seen in Islamic art which is the manifestation of Muslim religion in Malaysia. They were established on the location of KL's race track. Due to the deepness of the bedrock, these buildings were constructed on the deepest foundations in the world. The 120-metre foundations were established by Bachy Soletanche as well as necessitated immense quantities of concrete. 

An odd decision has been made, a dissimilar construction firm was hired for every tower and this was done so they will contend against one another. 

Soon, the constructors of Tower 2, the Samsung Constructions, Kukdong Engineering & Construction from South Korea thrived in the competition in spite of beginning having a month lag behind the Tower 1 established by Hazama Corporation. Tower 1 experienced some issues when they found out that the building was 25 millimetres off from vertical. The shopping centre underneath the towers was built by the Birmingham Alabama based Bill Harbert International. 

Since they are short of steel as well as the great price of importing steel, these towers were made on a lower cost drastic design of extreme strength reinforced concrete. The high-strength concrete is well-known kind of material to Asian contractors and twice as efficient as steel. However, it creates a building twice as weighty on the foundations in contrast to steel building. 

These buildings are propped up by 23x23 metre concrete cores as well as an outer ring of extensively spaced super columns. The towers utilize a refined structural system accommodating its slum profile and supplies from 1300 to 2000 sqm of column-free office space for every floor. 



Underneath the twin towers are where you can find Suria KLCC; this is a well-known shopping mall as well as Dewan Filharmonik Petronas where you will find the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra. Other buildings utilized spires in order to augment their height though they have at all times been higher in general to the apex when attempting to assert the title
