High-Rise Buildings

For the purpose of creating the maximum amount of space in a relatively small building area, the focus with high-rise buildings is on vertical development. In view of the height factor, bracing structures are of major significance here, which can be seen, for example, in the checking of structural calculations as well as structural design of supporting structures for the Grand Central building in Düsseldorf. Special procedures are frequently required for the foundations of high-rise buildings; in earthquake regions, earthquake protection also plays a decisive role.
