Financial Park Office Towers

Panama City

Walter P Moore was engaged by the developer to provide structural engineering services and parking consulting for this new two-tower complex which houses 40 stories of office space, an eight level podium and three basement levels of parking for 1679 cars.  The orientation of the towers with reference to the podium presented opportunities to leverage our parking consulting expertise to develop efficient structural grid and efficient parking layout. We worked closely with the geotechnical engineer to develop a site-specific seismic study that allowed the reclassification of the site class from E to the much less stringent site class C.  This change realized significant savings in the seismic lateral systems of the towers. Construction of Tower 1 is complete; construction of Tower 2 has not started.
