UK wind engineers picked for supertall Dubai tower

UK-based BMT Fluid Mechanics has been appointed as the wind engineering consultant for a record-breaking Dubai tower designed by Santiago Calatrava.

The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour is being developed by Emaar Properties. BMT has been appointed by Aurecon, which was chosen by Calatrava as the engineer/architect-of-record to collaborate on a range of design and technical features for the project (link opens in new tab).

The supertall building’s 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, including the Pinnacle Room, which will offer 360° views of the city and beyond.
