<< Back Sheshan Shimao Quarry Hotel is now complete.
2017-11-20
The structure of the Sheshan Shimao Quarry Hotel, the world's first chasm hotel is now complete, with the property set to open in Shanghai in 2018. It's being built in an abandoned open-cast mine the size of five soccer fields with 336 rooms and an underwater restaurant. Total cost will exceed 1 billion yuan ($151 million).
With 16 of its 18 floors underground, it has been called a wonder of modern engineering mustering over 5,000 architects, engineers, designers and workers, from initial design in 2006 to interior decoration today. While normal projects use tried and tested technology to transport materials upward, this undertaking has required novel solutions to achieve the opposite. It's been a fight against gravity.
The upper structure has a strong constraint and large stiffness. The steel frame-support structure with the better ductility should be chosen. The slab stiffness has a significant influence on the force of main structural members, so the envelope results of different slab stiffness was considered in the design. The composite slab with ribbed steel decking can effectively solve the tension problems of the concrete slab.
Shanghai Shimao Group invests the structure while hospitality group InterContinental will manage the completed property.
