Four levels of the basement are proposed for this building. These underground levels basically accommodate for commercial, car parking and plant rooms. This level is accessed via the staircases and lifts located around the perimeter walls. Basement slab is proposed to be reinforced concrete flat slab with column head, composite columns supporting the tower and reinforced concrete columns supporting the podium floors, reinforced concrete core walls.

Along the perimeter of the basement, reinforced concrete wall is provided to act as a barrier between the underground water together with the surrounding soil outside the basement. The whole construction system of the basement is in-situ concrete.

The structural form used for basement 4 is a traditional beam/ slab construction. Whilst for basement 3 to basement 1 is flat slab 250mm thick with column head 500mm thick.

Podium slabs are also designed as a pre-stressed flat slab with perimeter beams, composite columns, reinforced concrete core walls.
