BMT completes Dubai Creek Tower design study

DUBAI, February 14, 2018

BMT, a leading international design, engineering, science and risk management consultancy, said it has completed key studies on the design for the Dubai Creek Tower.

An iconic building being developed by Emaar Properties has been designed by world-renowned architect and engineer Santiago Calatrava. who is leading its design and engineering work.

BMT said as part of its work, the company's wind engineering experts have completed aerodynamic shape optimisation studies, wind loading analyses and façade wind pressures assessments.

The building’s striking design includes a distinctive net of steel cable stays that attach to a central reinforced concrete column that will reach into the skies. At the top of the tower is an oval-shaped bud that will house several observation decks, offering unprecedented, 360-degree views of the city and beyond, said the company in a statement.

It will also serve as a beacon of light at night, with a lighting system that will evoke the features of a flower bud, as it seemingly hovers atop the structure, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
