High Rise Design

High Rise Design

Over recent years, the contemporary design of high-rise buildings has become increasingly challenging and more complex architecturally. We collaborate with architects, developers and builders to achieve elegant and smart structural solutions that meet the demands of cutting-edge high-rise projects. We focus on finding the optimal balance between key factors including form, function, schedule, sustainability, constructability and budget.
Our team have a wealth of international experience in high-rise office and residential buildings across Australia, Italy, and the United Arab Emirates. Hera Engineering recognises that the interaction between construction engineering and design is key to the success of any high-rise development.

Consideration of lateral acceleration due to wind and seismic action poses unique challenges to structural design and we explore these options through advanced 3D computer analysis. This investigation facilitates the design process and guarantees value for money for the client.
In challenging market conditions, budgets are often restricted and developers are looking for solutions which will maximise their return on investment. At Hera Engineering we understand this and our aim is to provide innovative and cost-effective solutions for all our clients.
