Wynsum Tower was designed by Mr. Kronenberg as Design Partner for IEDC. The tower is located near the Asian Development Bank in Metro Manila. It is 35 stories and approximately 560,000 square feet. There are two banks of four high-speed elevators serving the low and high rise floors. A service elevator serves all floors.
The main entrance lobby is a two story public concourse clad in granite and lacquered cherry wood panels. All building occupants and visitors pass through the main lobby. Parking for three hundred cars is provided on level two through seven of the tower.
The typical office floors are 16,000 square feet with a typical lease depth of 35 feet. The tower is shaped to provide a generous number of prized corner offices. The floor to floor height is 12’-3” with a finished ceiling height of 8’-6”. Power, telephone, and data are distributed via trench header ducts and power cells in an electrified metal deck from the telephone and electrical rooms. These cells also accommodate wiring for computer networks.
The building structure is 6000 psi high strength concrete with high grade reinforcing steel in a dual system of coupled shear walls at the core and ductile moment frames on the exterior designed to UBC Seismic Zone 4 requirements.
The mechanical system is a water-cooled system with a cooling tower on the roof and floor by floor fan rooms. Diesel powered generators provide 100% back up power. The building is has a sprinkler system throughout and designed in accordance with type I non-combustible construction as outlined in the Uniform Building Code. A computer based Building Management System monitors and controls the building air conditioning, ventilation, lighting, power, security, fire, and life safety systems.
The tower is clad in low-e reflective laminated glass, insulated metal panel and granite. It was completed and fully leased in 1998.
