Diagram Building and Foundation :

.


Picture - http://img32.imageshack.us/img32/9528/foundationd.png


Note -- this building (less its Foundation) isnt even 20 stories high.  Go back and see how many were shown to be 40 or even 60 floors (if the rows of windows denote floors) in the exaggerated Outside views of the Cityscape.


- Central Core of building running to height of building :

--- -- Elevator shafts (2 passenger, 1 freight)

--- -- Utility 'building mains' tube with access ladder (power, heat, air, water, communications)

--- -- Stairwell linking all floors

--- -- Notice how much space the utility core takes up from each floor of the building.


- Thick Walls of reinforced concrete (Ryanium and Steel rebar)

--- -- To not just hold up the multi hundred foot structure but also to hold out the sea pressure.


- Floors :

--- -- Interchangeable floor layouts for different purposes/needs (commercial, residential)

--- -- Compression struts (structural) to counter external sea pressure (280+ psi) on walls every couple of floors.


- Basement with elevator and environmental control machinery (and sumps/pumps)


- Windows of 'super glass' insets with Ryanium framing set into walls.


- Foundation mass of water setting concrete (cut deep into the seafloor and bedrock to stabalize the tall building)    Note- That many Buildings may NOT need a Foundation (particularly the part shown here above the seafloor) quite that tall --- though would need much of the part below the seafloor to anchor the large building properly.

--- -- Filled with 'plumstone' rocks to save on concrete used to build that mass (at least half the volume)

--- -- Filled with chambers/tunnels to save on concrete and provide secondary storage.

--- -- Inspection tunnels at various levels to check for leaks/structure failure (during construction)

--- -- Airlock at seafloor level for maintenance access (with internal stairwells)


- Water tanks on roof level for fire supression systems.


- Optional Bathysphere/Submarine dock (simple type - Metro stations take up very large spaces)
