Abstract
A combination of keel trusses and cable structure was adopted as the structural scheme for a building that needed to have the minimum number of columns over the floor area, as a result of its use as a covered waste disposal site. For safety and constructability the slide forming method was adopted, which is also effective for reducing the construction period.
