Naypyitaw Mixed Development, Myanmar

Designing a mixed-use development for a complex environment

  • Mixed use development
  • Aurecon's role: Civil, structural, and building services
  • Client: ID Architects Pte Ltd

The Naypyitaw Mixed Development Project is Aurecon’s first Property project in Myanmar – a residential, retail and commercial complex in Myanmar’s new capital city of Naypyitaw.

Aurecon is providing mechanical, electrical, civil and structural services.

The Naypyitaw Mixed Development is made up of two nine-storey condominium blocks, two storeys of cafes and shops lining both sides of an internal promenade, with the street extending to the second level at certain areas. A “floating” glass canopy acts as a shelter. A three-storey bank and office block sits on the eastern side of the promenade.

The site sits on a seismic zone 3 so we designed it for seismic zone 4.

As the power and water supplies in the area are unpredictable and sewage drains non-existent, we had to provide for generators, wells and septic tanks in the design.

Construction of the super-structure is expected to start in May 2014 and was targeted for completion by December 2015.

This project was featured in Architecture14 magazine.
