Our structural and building services engineers provided the detailed design of four super-high rise towers in Downtown Dubai, the highest of which is the Address Residence hotel, which will stand at 315m.
The concrete frame towers share a podium that accommodates three basement levels, retail areas and 11 parking floors, as well as building services installations. The podium links to the adjacent Dubai Mall.
The complex will be connected to the local district cooling network and, as the towers are so high, ensuring that returning water temperatures are at acceptable levels is a challenge. Design work continues while construction is proceeding on site, with one main contractor and four MEP contractors.
The Address Residence is part of Emaar’s largest project to date — Fountain Views — and completion is scheduled for 2019.
