A Whitby Mohajer Engineers (WME) project
The concrete frame towers share a podium that accommodates three basement levels, retail areas and 11 parking floors, as well as building services installations. The podium links to the adjacent Dubai Mall.
The complex will be connected to the local district cooling network and, as the towers are so high, ensuring that returning water temperatures are at acceptable levels is a challenge. Design work continues while construction is proceeding on site, with one main contractor and four MEP contractors.
