The Tower at Dubai Creek HarborProject info
DEC Dynamic Engineering Consultants has been appointed by Aurecon as the Architect of Record and Construction Administration (Supervision) sub-consultant for the ‘The Tower’, a new structure at Dubai Creek Harbour that is being designed by world-renowned architect and engineer, Santiago Calatrava who is leading its design and engineering work. Calatrava has chosen global engineering consultants, Aurecon, as the engineer/architect of record to collaborate with on a range of design and technical features for the ambitious project. The supertall 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 ten observation decks, including The Pinnacle Room, which will offer unprecedented, 360 degree views of the city and beyond. 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.
Mohamed Alabbar, Chairman of Emaar Properties, the Dubai based company that commissioned the project, said The Tower encapsulates the positive spirit of Dubai.
“The Tower in Dubai Creek Harbour will be a shining beacon of hope for the world, celebrating diversity and human achievements. The iconic landmark will further amplify the country’s ambition and futuristic
vision,” he said. The design is a perfect fit for our requirements and integrates not just design excellence, but also strong environmental and smart-tech considerations. With The Tower, we are delivering a
compelling destination that will add long-term economic value to Dubai and the United Arab Emirates.”
