2018/11/18    Oritia & Boreas is proud to participate in the project of the Morocco’s highest skyscraper.

The Bank of Africa tower will stand at 820 feet tall (250 meters), and become the tallest in Morocco the second-highest skyscraper on the continent, and the tallest in Morocco.

Rising to 55 floors, Morocco's Bank of Africa tower will host a luxury hotel, apartments, office space and a viewing terrace at the top. The new skyscraper was designed by architects Rafael de la Hoz and Hakim Benjelloun, and is being built by construction firms BESIX Group and Travaux Generaux de Construction de Casablanca (TGCC).

Oritia & Boreas has determined design wind loading and structural response study, with a plaza study of the tower and nearby surroundings to pedestrian comfort and security levels, façade design, landscape and urban planning. The study was based on pressure and balance model tests at the early state of design followed by a high resolution pressure model and a experimentally validated CFD model for detail analysis.

Hong Kong (CNN)The world's strongest storm this year, Typhoon Mangkhut, continued its path of destruction across Southeast Asia over the weekend, reaching mainland China on Sunday afternoon after pummeling Hong Kong and killing dozens in the Philippines.

Hong Kong's weather observatory issued its highest storm warning alert -- a signal T10 -- and the normally bustling city was all but shut down as transport was suspended and torrential rain flooded roads and buildings.

Winds of 173 kilometers per hour (107 miles per hour) and gusts of up to 223 kph (138 mph) were reported, stronger than Hurricane Florence that hit North Carolina over the weekend. There were no reported deaths in Hong Kong, a city well prepared for tropical cyclones.

2018/09/02    A sand tornado causes severe damage in a solar park

The high intensity windspeeds of such flow systems, well established and of intermediate duration, are usually not dangerous for buildings, but they might be for the normally more flexible and light structures of the solar parks. Wind blown sand within these flows may result in challenging effects to the structure and their service in operation.
