Multi-phase scheme - Luxury hotel complex on Mykonos island, Greece.
The resort itself comprises a series of 12 independent buildings being inspired by the traditional cycladic architecture. Below ground though, the whole plot is occupied by a multi-functional 3 levelled basement, serving logistic purposes and facilities but also hosting a long span conference centre (reinforced concrete).
Highlight is the main swimming pool, located at the top level of the main building, atop of the reception. The main challenge faced in the design was not only its long span, but also the enormous water mass at a high level inducing a significant oscillating mass in the (frequent) event of an earthquake.
Apart from the permanent works design, Technodynamics also undertook the detail design development working closely with the contactor – coordinating the process considering the local capabilities for delivering a sound result.
Construction Methodology – erection sequence (CMES) department was heavily involved from the conceptual stage to facilitate the sequence of the activities but also designed all the associated temporary works, including a 20m high retaining wall to allow for the programme to be accelerated.
