The major cities of Sri Lanka are fast changing with many residential apartment buildings constructed. One of the primary requirements is the provision of car parking for which the lower floors are generally used. The car parks have a certain grid requirement for vertical load carrying members primarily arising due to guidelines specified in Building Regulations. Often, this grid arrangement is not suitable for the residential apartment above. Therefore, it is necessary to introduce a load transfer method at the starting of the apartment floors. This paper describes a complete design of a load transfer plate using finite elements as a solution to a 25 storied reinforced concrete building in Colombo, Sri Lanka which has car parking floors up to 5th storey. Further it is recommended to apply transfer plate concept as a solution to various space requirements and advancements of architectural features in modern high-rise building.
