Iconic Dubai Creek Tower Reaches Design Milestone

BMT has announced that it has taken Dubai’s next signature structure, ‘Dubai Creek Tower’ to 100% design development. This iconic, megatall building by Emaar Properties, has been designed by world-renowned architect and engineer,  Santiago Calatrava who is leading its
design and engineering work.

BMT’s wind engineering experts have completed aerodynamic shape optimisation studies, wind loading analyses and façade wind pressures assessments.

The building’s striking design includes a distinctive net of steel stay-cables 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 several observation decks, offering 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.
