Type

CTBUH collects data on two major types of tall structures: 'Buildings' and 'Telecommunications / Observation Towers.' A 'Building' is a structure where at least 50% of the height is occupied by usable floor area. A 'Telecommunications / Observation Tower' is a structure where less than 50% of the structure's height is occupied by usable floor area. Only 'Buildings' are eligible for the CTBUH 'Tallest Buildings' lists.

Function

A single-function tall building is defined as one where 85% or more of its usable floor area is dedicated to a single usage. Thus a building with 90% office floor area would be said to be an "office" building, irrespective of other minor functions it may also contain.

A mixed-use tall building contains two or more functions (or uses), where each of the functions occupy a significant proportion of the tower's total space. Support areas such as car parks and mechanical plant space do not constitute mixed-use functions. Functions are denoted on CTBUH "Tallest Building" lists in descending order, e.g., "hotel/office" indicates hotel function above office function.

Height

Height is measured from the level of the lowest, significant, open-air, pedestrian entrance to the architectural top of the building, including spires, but not including antennae, signage, flag poles or other functional-technical equipment. This measurement is the most widely utilized and is employed to define the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) rankings of the "World's Tallest Buildings."

Floors Above Ground

The number of floors above ground should include the ground floor level and be the number of main floors above ground, including any significant mezzanine floors and major mechanical plant floors. Mechanical mezzanines should not be included if they have a significantly smaller floor area than the major floors below. Similarly, mechanical penthouses or plant rooms protruding above the general roof area should not be counted. Note: CTBUH floor counts may differ from published accounts, as it is common in some regions of the world for certain floor levels not to be included (e.g., the level 4, 14, 24, etc. in Hong Kong).

About Ningbo Yotrio International Trade Company Building

Garden furniture manufacturer Yotrio's headquarter's office tower is a dual façade high-rise with openable windows for natural ventilation. Flexible and partitionable office space as well as an extensive showroom have been created on a gross floor area of approximately 34,000 square meters. Most of the showroom is housed in the 5-storey building, which adjoins the tower on the west side. In terms of urban planning, the Ningbo Yotrio International Trade Company Building functions as a gateway on one of the main axes to the city center of Ningbo. The crystal-like beveled façade at the north-eastern corner of the building marks the main entrance to the building. The modern, clear image of the user is reflected in the outer appearance of the tower by smooth surfaces and the horizontal façade bands of white glass elements that become narrower as the height of the building increases.

The 1st to 5th floor are public and exhibition areas; the upper floors are for internal exhibition functions, tenant use and Ningbo Yotrio International Trade Company’s own use; the 25th floor is for training functions and 26th floor is prearranged for the upper management of the company.
