Abstract:
Dubai Tower is a 438 metre tower mixed used development consisting of retail, hotel, commercial and residential zones over 90 levels and is currently under construction in Doha, Qatar. At completion in 2011, it will be in the top 20 tallest buildings in the world. This paper summarises some of the key challenges associated with the design of the tower, and the different solutions that were adopted. Another main aspect of design was the performance of the structure in terms of the efficiency of the various structural elements such as the columns, floor framing system, core walls and outrigger trusses.
