Tall Buildings is a compilation of, literally and figuratively, far-reaching projects taken from vision to reality by ARCADIS, CallisonRTKL and Hyder. Drawing upon global resources to provide clients with the most comprehensive set of end-to-end planning, design, and program and construction management services available in the marketplace today, these sister firms continue to build upon a legacy of creating iconic structures that culturally, strategically and aesthetically fit neatly into their urban contexts. The results—these marvels of architectural and engineering ingenuity—host an ever-expanding array of activities at greater heights than before, crafting uniquely-shaped city skylines in a manner intended to be at once recognizable and newly inspiring.
With an eye toward cutting-edge development in premier and up-and-coming locations, these tall buildings are designed with core structure efficiencies and sustainable outcomes in mind. Our design and engineering professionals understand that pushing the envelope in tower design requires a superior level of precision, and that meeting tenant and client needs calls for the creative application of proven techniques matched with a masterful understanding of the latest technology. Within the walls, we strive to create elegant, adaptable, and interconnected environments that facilitate a productive and enjoyable user experience. Our goal is an integrated, informed design process that, when combined with the engineering feats of building the world’s tallest buildings, exceeds expectations.
In presenting examples of our best work, we aim not only to showcase our strength in architectural engineering and design, but to gain new perspective from a comprehensive look at some of our greatest challenges and notable triumphs. And in doing so, we move forward with a better appreciation of the infinite possibilities that abound when our understanding of design is, for all intents and purposes, elevated.
