Soil testing was completed a while back .. A new supertall is coming to Dubai :D




The 360m high tower, which boasts a gross floor area of 66,000m2 and a built-up area of 80,000m2, was designed to accommodate hotel branded serviced furnished apartments as well as unfurnished apartments. It features a total of 488 apartments spread over 59 floors, with three floors intended for office use and the ground floor for the tower entrances and retail units.

I read from the link attached:

"Diar Consult appointed Arup for the concept design of both structure and MEP services in addition to the assignment of vertical transportation, facade engineering and fire and life safety specialty engineering, to obtain the best levels of technical expertise and set a solid foundation for the design integrity. In addition, Diar Consult recommended to the client the appointment of Omnium, an international cost management firm, to ensure that the financial objectives of the investor are carefully guarded through progressively updated cost plans and the value engineering process. Design development of structure and MEP were assigned to DAR and Ian Banham & Associates respectively"

Is Arup actually involved in the structural design?
