When complete, the MOL Tower will be the tallest building in Budapest at a height of 120m. The MOL Campus will provide 29 floors of premium office space with sweeping views towards the city. Framed in unbonded post-tensioned concrete to achieve the large column-free spans required by the architectural design intent, the tower structure is optimised to withstand wind and seismic loads.
The 305.3 metres high tower is a high-strength concrete shaft with steel-framed observation deck levels. Three curved concrete buttresses brace the base of the shaft and distribute vertical and lateral loads to the pile cap. The structure is exceptionally slender, with a height to width ratio of 21.3, and the design has been analysed for both the strength and stability of the structure, as well as for the potential for movement under high winds.
