The structural challenges of building 800 metres into the sky are substantial, and include several factors which do not affect low-rise construction. This book focusses on these areas specifically to provide the architectural and structural knowledge which must be taken into account in order to design tall buildings successfully. In presenting examples of steel, reinforced concrete, and composite structural systems for such buildings, it is shown that wind load has a very important effect on the architectural and structural design. The aerodynamic approach to tall buildings is considered in this context, as is earthquake induced lateral loading. Case studies of some of the world’s most iconic buildings, illustrated with full colour photographs, structural plans and axonometrics, will bring to life the design challenges which they presented to architects and structural engineers. The Empire State Building, the Burj Khalifa, Taipei 101 and the HSB Turning Torso are just a few examples of the buildings whose real-life specifications are used to explain and illustrate core design principles, and their subsequent effect on the finished structure.

The drive towards environmentally friendly buildings and infrastructure has led to a growing interest in providing design solutions underpinned by the core principles of sustainability to balance economic, social and environmental factors. Design Economics for the Built Environment: Impact of sustainability on project evaluation presents new directions, reflecting the need to recognise the impact of climate change and the importance of sustainability in project evaluation. The aim is to provide a new approach to understanding design economics in the context of the changing policy environment, legislative and regulatory framework, and increasing economic, environmental and social pressure as result of the sustainability agenda. The book follows a structured approach from theories and principles in the earlier chapters, to the practical applications and emerging techniques focusing on value and social, economic and environmental considerations in making design decisions. It starts with the policy context, building on various theories and principles such as, capital cost, value of design and resource-based theories, the new rules of measurement (NRM) to explore cost planning, the relationship between height and costs, key socio-economic and environmental variables for design appraisal, eco-cost/value ratio (EVR), whole life theory and the treatment of carbon emission as external costs, productivity and efficiency, fiscal drivers and legal framework for carbon reduction, procurement and allocation of risks in contracts. Case studies, practical examples and frameworks throughout reinforce theories and principles and relate them to current practice. The book is essential reading for postgraduate students in architecture, building and quantity surveying and is also a valuable resource for academics, consultants and policy-makers in the built environment.

Recently returned to Chinese sovereignty after 150 years under the British Empire, Hong Kong is a city of constant reinvention. Decades of free-wheeling capitalism and rapid growth have created a unique urban organism, boasting a spectacular harbour-front skyline supported by one of the world's most sophisticated infrastructure systems. Yet, when plans to build a new, world-class airport and associated infrastructure were revealed in 1989, the territory's future was hanging in the balance. The Airport Core Programme would ensure that Hong Kong remains a global centre for business and tourism, and a major Asian transportation hub. It would be one of the world's largest single infrastructure projects and would become a symbol of Hong Kong's determination and self-confidence. Following an ambitious programme of design and construction, Hong Kong Station, the state-of-the-art terminus to the Airport and Lantau Railway, opened to coincide with the airport's debut on 7th July 1998.Situated on a newly created waterfront site at the heart of the central business district, the building has been designed as a comprehensive inter-modal transport facility, forging vital links to the surrounding urban fabric. This book, written by the designers who masterminded, planned and detailed the flagship station, chronicles the building's creation from a bold vision to working reality. Arup is recognised throughout the world for producing buildings of exceptional quality which advance the frontiers of architecture and engineering. Its multi-disciplinary collaboration on this project brings together an extraordinary synthesis of conventional design wisdom and technical innovation, to produce a holistic urban intervention driven by the symbiosis between mass transit and commerce. Designed in the tradition of the world's great railway terminal, 'Hong Kong Station' is effectively an extension to the city, creating a major public amenity within a spacious and naturally illuminated series of interconnected volumes.

Since the 1960s, wind tunnel testing has become a commonly used tool in the design of tall buildings. It was pioneered, in large part, during the design of the World Trade Center Towers in New York. Since those early days of wind engineering, wind tunnel testing techniques have developed in sophistication, but these techniques are not widely understood by the designers using the results. As a direct result, the CTBUH Wind Engineering Working Group was formed to develop a concise guide for the non-specialist. The primary goal of this guide is to provide an overview of the wind tunnel testing process for design professionals. This knowledge allows readers to ask the correct questions of their wind engineering consultants throughout the design process. This is not an in-depth guide to the technical intricacies of wind tunnel testing, it focusses instead on the information the design community needs, including: a unique methodology for the presentation of wind tunnel results to allow straightforward comparison of results from different wind tunnel laboratories. advice on when a tall building is likely to be sufficiently sensitive to wind effects to benefit from a wind tunnel test background for assessing whether design codes and standards are applicable details of the types of tests that are commonly conducted descriptions of the fundamentals of wind climate and the interaction of wind and tall buildings This unique book is an essential guide for all designers of tall buildings, and anyone else interested in the process of wind tunnel testing for tall buildings.
