XuZhou LeadFrame Engineering Co.,Ltd is a professional  manufacturer  and  engineering  company  for  space  frame and  steel  structure  project  with  full  capability of research, design, fabrication and supervision service. We are main projects are glass curtain wall , glass dome, coal storage shed, gas station etc.
The Shanghai Tower was designed by the American architectural firm Gensler, with Chinese architect Jun Xia leading the design team.
The tower takes the form of nine cylindrical buildings stacked atop each other, totalling 121 floors, all enclosed by the inner layer of the glass facade.Between that and the outer layer, which twists as it rises, nine indoor zones provide public space for visitors.[5][19] Each of these nine areas has its own atrium, featuring gardens, cafes, restaurants and retail space, and providing 360-degree views of the city.
Both layers of the facade are transparent, and retail and event spaces are provided at the tower's base.The transparent facade is a unique design feature, because most buildings have only a single facade using highly reflective glass to lower heat absorption, but the Shanghai Tower's double layer of glass eliminates the need for either layer to be opaqued.The tower is able to accommodate as many as 16,000 people on a daily basis.
The Shanghai Tower joins the Jin Mao Tower and SWFC to form the world's first adjacent grouping of three super tall buildings. Its 258-room hotel, located between the 84th and 110th floors, is to be operated by Jin Jiang International Hotels as the Shanghai Tower J-Hotel,  and at the time of its completion it will be the highest hotel in the world.The tower will also incorporate a museum.The tower's sub-levels provide parking spaces for 1,800 vehicles.
View from Shanghai Tower Observation Deck, the design of the tower's glass facade, which completes a 120° twist as it rises, is intended to reduce wind loads on the building by 24%.This reduced the amount of construction materials needed; the Shanghai Tower used 25% less structural steel than a conventional design of a similar height.As a result, the building's constructors saved an estimated US$58 million in material costs.Construction practices were also optimised for sustainability. Though the majority of the tower's energy will be provided by conventional power systems, vertical-axis wind turbines located near the top of the tower are capable of generating up to 350,000 kWh of supplementary electricity per year. The double-layered insulating glass facade was designed to reduce the need for indoor air conditioning, and is composed of an advanced reinforced glass with a high tolerance for shifts in temperature.In addition, the building's heating and cooling systems use geothermal energy sources.
The Shanghai Tower represents a new way of defining and creating cities. By incorporating best practices in sustainability and high-performance design, by weaving the building into the urban fabric of Shanghai and drawing community life into the building, Shanghai Tower redefines the role of tall buildings in contemporary cities and raises the bar for the next generation of super-highrises.
