I hope you aren't planning on placing in a single pour. That would be a recipe for disaster. You will need multiple pours or slip form.

Can't respond to engineering aspects since I am not an engineer.

You might want to include a comment on the geometry of the building. I figure rectangular but round is easier to brace.

Shipping on precast this long would be an issue and I don't see it practical to create continuity in precast if using stacked modules. I am concerned with the cost of bracing the high poured walls during construction as they are being built and figuring this cost into a preliminary cost estimate.
