Tall Buildings: How they get built

Thursday 29 May 2014

Technical Seminar, 08:30 - 11:00 (Registration from 8:00)

NLA, The Building Centre, 26 Store Street, London WC1E 7BT

This NLA technical seminar will examine advances in the design, engineering and construction of tall buildings in London, and how advances elsewhere might influence London’s approach.

What are the specific technical and engineering requirements of building tall? What does building tall mean for energy use and how can we ensure sustainability in this relatively new typology for London? What new technologies are being used to maximize a building’s capabilities? Join us to hear from architects, engineers, contractors and building experts to discuss the technical intricacies behind some of London’s key tall buildings. 

This technical seminar forms part of the series of events accompanying NLA’s major exhibition and Insight Study looking at tall buildings in London
