Dicarina Argos Building
This seven-story reinforced concrete building houses 12,000 square meters of office space and 525 spaces in seven levels of parking. A rooftop gymnasium, cafeteria and outdoor terrace with green spaces are among the amenities. Walter P Moore provided structural engineering design and documentation services. In a departure from the construction norm in Panama, the building utilizes one way post tensioned slabs supported on long span, shallow post tensioned concrete beams for all floors and perimeter framing. The system allowed longer and more efficient lease bays and increased the efficiency of the parking layout. The building was awarded LEED for Core & Shell V3.0 - Silver Certification.
