These buildings would look much better if they all are clustered together to form one skyline like what they are doing in Moscow or Shanghai where the tall buildings are together.

For a cluster you need a lot of space.

It WOULD be the 5th tallest if all those were completed yes.

Kiwis will leave signature on tower

New Zealand engineers from Beca are working on the tallest building in the southern hemisphere, the US$1 billion Signature Tower in Jakarta.

The five-year job involves engineering for all the building services for the 111-storey structure that will be twice the height of Auckland's Sky Tower.

At 638m tall it will be one of only 60 buildings worldwide over 300m in height.

The world's tallest building Burj Khalifa at Dubai is 828m.

Signature Tower is the focal point of the district being developed by Indonesian company PT Grahamas Adisentosa.

Beca's technical director Simon Longuet-Higgins has been working for the company on projects in Indonesia since 1984, including several stints living in Jakarta with his family.

He recently worked with the same developer on the Marriott, Ritz-Carlton and Pacific Palace hotels, all in Jakarta, where Beca employs 50 local engineers.

"It is the tallest tower we have worked on. Essentially the building is five stacked on top of one another so you engineer it from a services perspective as five buildings. The tricky bit is joining them all together. There is some pretty high pressure pipe work because you've got to pump water to the top of the building," Longuet-Higgins said.

"Because it's so tall you get a thing called stack effect. If you've got a shaft that goes the whole way up the building you get huge volumes of air moving through just because of the different pressures and temperatures between the top and bottom of the building. Generally, you just apply good engineering and if you do that then it all works."

The building includes its own wastewater treatment plant and generators to produce 100 per cent of the electricity it will use to combat the water shortages and weak infrastructure in Jakarta.

Longuet-Higgins will travel to Jakarta every six weeks to meet the other parties working on the building.

Engineering firm reaches new heights

Work to create an Indonesian skyscraper twice the height of Auckland's Sky Tower has been won by Auckland consultancy Beca.

A spokesperson said the business had won the contract to provide the mechanical and electrical engineering design for Jakarta's Signature Tower, the tallest building planned in the Southern Hemisphere.

It will be the fifth-tallest building in the world, standing 638m, with a 10-level retail podium, three office zones, a six-star hotel and a viewing observatory at the 111th level.

"Challenges include engineering a complex network of over 100 lifts, two of which shuttle vertically over half a kilometre from the ground floor to the observatory," said the Beca spokesperson.

Construction will start in the middle of the year and will not finish until 2017.

Beca engineers in Auckland and Jakarta will provide fire and life safety design and mechanical and electrical engineering on the tower and consultancy on the lift job.

The firm is working on 22 high-rise towers in Indonesia, including Ciputra World, the Wisma Mulia office and the Sequis Centre.

All the blocks are more than 40 storeys high. Beca is also working on the 67-level Thamrin Nine mixed-use complex.

The world's tallest building is the Burj Khalifa, Dubai, at 828m.

Simon Longuet-Higgins, a New Zealand-born mechanical engineer, is leading the team from Beca on the Signature Tower.

He speaks Indonesian, is based in Auckland and has worked on projects in Indonesia since 1984.

He has worked on the Macau Tower in China, Conrad Resort & Spa in Bali, Pacific Place in Jakarta and the SkyCity conference centre and Grand Hotel in Auckland.

This is awesome! I hope they stick with the current design- it has a nice retro-modern feel.

Great news.

I'm just wishing Jakarta all the best it gets the current design, it's absolutely fantastic! It's time for a real Art Deco revival in skyscraper construction!
