Habito – the new kid on the block

Part of the dynamic Tecom development, this 17 storey building will provide 108 state of the art studios as well as 4 two-bed penthouse apartments. Flexibility was a key consideration for the clients who instructed the consultant to design the building taking into consideration the future proofing of the facilities.

Part of the dynamic Tecom development, this 17 storey building will provide 108 state of the art studios as well as 4 two-bed penthouse apartments. Flexibility was a key consideration for the clients who instructed the consultant to design the building taking into consideration the future proofing of the facilities.

 

 

To meet the high standards of safety and comfort specified by client, Al Muhareibi Real Estate, the architects had to provide high acoustic performance of Rw55dB between apartments, in conjunction with at least 60 minutes fire resistance to protect the structure and allow safe evacuation for upper floor residents in the case of fire.

The Gyproc systems provide an ideal alternative to more traditional masonry construction in this application, as their light weight and dry construction means the components are easier to handle and install in tighter spaces, faster to complete, without the drying delays associated with blockwork, and the finished construction is generally narrower than equivalent blockwork, maximising room space for residents.

Moreover, to meet the desire of future proofing of the building, 16mm DuraLine impact resistant boards were used to line the Gypwall ROBUST between apartments. Where flexibility was required, the walls were lined with a single layer of the revolutionary 12.5mm Habito board which offers a unique pull out strength of over 30kg, allowing the contractors to install TV sets by screwing directly into the plasterboard without the need of any reinforcement.
