Windtech Consultants is proud to have undertaken the wind engineering services for this impressive $350m project by Emirates-Morocco Trading & General Investment. Windtech worked closely with Singapore based Surbana International Consultants who were the lead consultants together with Meinhardt engineering consultants back in 2008.
Windtech Director, Tony Rofail says “It is certainly good to see this interesting building emerge after such a long time”. The building exhibited minimal resonant structural response to the ultimate design wind loads due to its efficient form. Peak accelerations, which are a measure of the effect of building motion on occupant comfort were also very low for the same reason, which is a very good outcome.
Windtech Consultants also undertook studies of the façade cladding pressures and wind environment impacts.
