Rectorate and Administrative Affairs

Design and Physical Development Office

Building Name : Rectorate and Administrative Affairs
Purpose : Chancellery Service
Construction Type: Reinforced Concrete Structure
Number of floors : Basement + ground floor + 17 floors
Gross Area : 10883.01 m² + Basement: 843.69 m²
Material : Exterior; Plaster and paint, curtain wall, interior; plaster/gypsum and paint, Floor covering: granite, ceramic Launch Date : Construction is still in progress

Rectorate and Administrative Affairs is located at the centre of the Near East University.

The construction which is still in progress will be the highest building of the Near East University with the total of 18 floors.

This building will have the responsibilities of the existing rectorate. The building will have the features of a smart building. The aim is to improve the quality of the service.

Contribute to the dynamic nature of the University, main aim is gathering all of the administrative offices into place.

The transportation inside the building will be provided with two stairs and 2 fast elevators (1.6 m/s).

• The basement of the building has an area of 843.69m². It will be used as a storehouse, technical service and car park.
• Ground floor. 1st floor and 2nd floor have the area of 843.69m² each and they will all belong to the offices which student affairs will be carried out.
• 4-18 floors were design to have a usage area of 500.55m². There will be administrative offices in each floor.

Static Technical Information
The construction structure of the new Administrative Affairs was preferred as reinforced Concrete.

Beamed raft foundation system was used in the foundation of the building as a result of the structure, geometry and ground reports. All the applications of the building was built with the digital devices.

Sensitive devices such as digital and manual Teodolit, Nivo and Total Station that are able to give coordination, direction, orbit and code have been used. At the foundation of the building, partition system was used therefore it was aimed to provide high performance in both dynamic and vertical loads of the building structural system. Ribbed floor was used at the internal sections as a flooring system. By this way, it was gained favor at the installment projects and height of the ceiling. The building is classified within the group of buildings that the shear stress of all the earthquake loads is carried out by frames and open or non-open web girders.

Specifications that have been used, Standards and References
National and International specifications, standards and references that have been used in the design of the reinforced concrete system are as below:
• TS498; Calculation of Loads for the sizing of structural elements
• Regulations about Constructions in the Disaster Areas(2007)
• TS500; Design and Construction of Concrete Structures

Within the framework of relevant references, some important information used in reinforced concrete system designs is as follows:
• Earthquake Zone: Second Degree → Ground Reports File
• Coefficient Ground Acceleration Elasticity: 0.3 → DBYBHY(2007) Table2.2
• Building importance coefficient factor: 1.4 → DBYBHY(2007) Table2.3
• Elasticity Level of Structure: COMPOUND → DBYBHY(2007) 2.5.4
• Local Soil Class: Z2 → Ground Reports File
• The purpose of the Building and its Type: Administrative Affair → DBYBHY(2007) Table7.7
• Structural Behavior Factor (R):6.00 → DBYBHY(2007) Table 2.5
• Active Load Participation Factor: 0.6 → DBYBHY(2007) Table 2.7
• Ground Spectrum Characteristic Periods: Ta=0.15 Tb=0.40→DBYBHY(2007) Table2.7
• Beding Coefficient: 3000 tone/m3 → Ground Reports File
• Ground Safety Stress: 25 tone/m2 → Ground Reports File

It was preferred to use the C35 type of concrete class and S420 (BCIIIa) of steel class as a result of the analyses and design which was used in the constriction.
