In Yangon, Myanmar's industrial centre in the south of the country, demand for office space is continuously rising. One of the projects that are currently under construction is the Sule Square office tower. It is being built near the famous Shwedagon Pagoda in the city centre.
The Sule Square Complex consists of a 6,000 m² shopping centre with restaurants, a five storey car park and a 15 storey, 30,000 m² office building.
DSI's licensee Utracon was awarded the contract to supply and install the strand post-tensioning system. The tendons were used to stress 4.7 m cantilever beams and 12 m long girders.
In Myanmar, post-tensioning systems have been rarely used up to now. The Sule Square project is currently the tallest building that has been built using posttensioning systems. The General Contractor chose the DYWIDAG Post-Tensioning Systems because of their flexibility and the possibility to create long spans.
Strand tonnage of 150.8 t
In total, Utracon installed 1,004 tendons including multiplane anchorages with a strand tonnage of 150.8 t in the beams.
