Myanmar is one of the fastest growing developing countries in Asia and is endowed with abundant natural and human resources.

Although the Real estate industry in Myanmar is still in the beginning stage, it is nevertheless growing relentlessly due to the favoring political changes, growing mining industries, energy industries, flourishing manufacturing industries, tourism industries and increasing numbers of both local and foreign real estate developers.

In realization of further developing the real estate industry, Myanmar Golden Wing Co., Ltd. (MGW) a well known local real estate developer is planning to build a high-end residential condominium, which will be the tallest building in the country.

The new condominium called Diamond Inya View Palace Building, located near Inya Lake, Yangon, will have an approximate gross floor area of 106,680 sqm and will be 34 storeys tall, a total of 9 storeys taller than Myanmar’s current tallest building located in Mandalay, being only 25 storeys tall. 

AIT Consulting also has the privilege of taking part in this project and will be conducting a Structural Peer Review for Diamond Inya View Palace Building.

The main objective of the Structural Peer Review is to review the structural system and design of the building in terms of suitability of selected structural systems, cost effectiveness, efficient use of materials and other resources, and conformance to building codes, standards and established engineering practices, with a special emphasis on the effects of earthquakes, wind, and other applicable demands.

In the 2nd week of February, Dr. Naveed Anwar, Executive Director, AIT Consulting, travelled to Yangon, Myanmar to meet with the main architect, Mr. Sermsak Hutinta and with the main structural engineer, Mr. Saw Htwe Zaw (S&A Co., Ltd.) to discuss about the schematic design of the building.

Dr. Naveed also met with MGW to discuss the project contract terms and with the Committee for Quality Control of High Rise Building Projects (CQHP) to discuss the particular concerns of the structural design of the project.
