SYNOPSIS

Specialized consultancy involving structural modelling of the architectural concept of several tall buildings

PROJECT COST

250,000 euro

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Studio Masera Ingegneria has worked on a joint-venture with a local Dubai firm studying the static and dynamic behaviour of tall and super-tall buildings. In particular, Studio Masera Ingegneria developed the tall building structural models and carried out data interpretation in order to highlight critical architectural situations. Aerodynamic analysis of the building made it possible to choose the best architectural shape in relation to the load conditions. The choice of the foundation type represented another important design step: strengthening the soil beneath the building foundation counteracts the tall building’s high pressure forces. The foundation study was carried out by MASERA ENGINEERING GROUP’s Geotechnical sector so that the best method of strengthening the soil could be identified.
