Ocean Heights is designed by Aedas and is under construction by Arabtec in the Dubai Marina of greater Dubai. The tower will stand 310 meters (1,017 feet) tall and have 82 floors. Construction is set to end in 2010.
Key technical challenges
Robert Bird Group’s role was to study the building movement during and post construction, giving due consideration to:
- Elastic shortening
- Concrete shrinkage
- Concrete creep
- Time/history of construction and structure loading
- Building lateral movement
In addition to the study, a movement monitoring system was developed for constant review during the construction and post construction.
