A new and innovative structural system for tall buildings
The Tubed Mega Frame consists of large hollow vertical shafts, mega columns, and outrigger walls.
The mega columns are located at the building perimeter and the number of mega columns can vary depending on the building plan.
The mega columns provide all of the vertical support and carry all of the building weight to the building perimeter making it the most efficient tall building structural system in the world.
All loads are transferred to the mega columns along the building length. The mega columns are connected with walls at intervals as necessary for stability.
The hollow mega columns house the Articulated Funiculator and grouped conventional elevators that service the floors between the Articulated Funiculator stations.
