This presentation addressed the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and drainage, and vertical transportation system (MEP/VTS) design challenges encountered during the design development of three unique, iconic megatall and near-megatall buildings in three major cities in China: Guangzhou, Tianjin, and Wuhan. It also provided insight into the innovative solutions that enable the delivery of world class buildings with high building efficiency, sustainability and reliability. The Guangzhou CTF Centre and Tianjin CTF Centre are mixed-use supertall buildings with heights of over 500 meters, comprising office, hotel, services apartment and retail podiums. A new development at Wuhan will consist of a megatall office tower, retail podium and several residential towers. All three of these buildings are owned by the Hong Kong-based New World Development Group. They are designed by different international architects and are located in different climatic zones of China.
