WME Director of Structures, Murali Guruvappan, presented to a capacity audience at the 50 Forward 50 Back 2019 CTBUH conference in Chicago.

The presentation was well received and focussed around the highly innovative SRG Tower development in Dubai. The tower will stand at 473m and has been created by Killa Design architects. The residential building, that will have LEED Platinum energy level status, has already won multiple awards including; The Architecture MasterPrize Honorable Mention.

The mega diagrid structure is a timeless and expressive feature, which not only resolves the lateral forces and transfers them directly to ground, but also creates an instantly recognisable architectural expression. The double wind turbines exemplify the sustainability aspirations of the client in creating a building that will lead a new benchmark in the future of super high rise not only in the Middle East but also globally. The turbines will create 500kW peak energy. This aspiration is further reinforced by the use of photovoltaic panels on all the spandrel facade panels between floors to create renewable energy for the common areas of the building.
