​High-rise in Qatar. We have in recent years been successfully involved in the design and post contract administration and inspection services for a number of prominent tall buildings primarily in the Arabian Gulf.
COWI’s involvement in tall buildings consultancy is derived from a sustainability and cost effective innovative approach all based on sound engineering principles.

Responding to ever increasing urban and social demands on accommodating dense populations in restricted areas, COWI has developed an integrated team of specialists that can provide clients with tailored structural and energy efficient services.

Our functionality and performance responsiveness is both to the environment and to the vertical commercial, residential and leisure communities housed by the new generation of tall buildings.

Our structural engineers are at the fore of many engineering techniques and approaches including leading design capabilities with pre-cast structural and high end cladding elements.

World leading sustainable design
Combining sustainability with functionality and performance, we have been rewarded with local and international awards.

COWI is furthermore recognized as leader in the design of sustainable, LEED certified buildings.

We have also completed the structural design of several challenging buildings whilst striking the balance between construction cost and build time.

The services COWI can provide in respect to high rise buildings include architecture and landscape architecture design, civil, structural and geotechnical engineering, mechanical, electrical and plumbing, value engineering, sustainable and green building design - LEED certified, fire engineering and acoustic engineering.
