The Fundamentals of High-Rise Design
Over the past 20 years, high-rise development has exploded worldwide, especially in the United States. As cities continue to pursue policies stressing density, developers are responding by pushing structural systems to greater heights.
City leaders are striving toward increasing developmental efficiency with innovative design methods that maximize the amount of space a structure offers while also reducing the amount of land needed for construction.
Climbing to Greater heights
As cities continue to pursue policies stressing density, developers are responding by pushing structural systems to greater heights.
America is in the midst of a high-rise development boom. However, designing and developing high-rise buildings is a complicated process requiring precise engineering and testing to assure that the design takes into consideration all the factors that can impact the building and its performance.
Here's What's Inside
It is essential for developers to understand that the planning and construction of a high-rise structure or development is an intricate process that requires expert planning and engineering to ensure that the structure is safe, efficient, and flexible.
