Tall Buildings present a set of challenges not found in other types of building structures. These challenges require the engineer to maintain a full understanding of the clients and other design team member requirements in creating a range appropriate structural solutions.
As the height of a building increases factors such as building dynamics, column shortening, soil structure interaction, seismic loading, creep, production rate and ultra-high strength materials begin to dominate the design.
