International High-Rise architecture and engineering conference in Dubai

Hera Engineering manages to develop innovative solutions in the engineering field because it always stays informed. Our Managing Director Matteo Tirapelle visited Dubai this week during the annual international architecture and engineering high-rise conference, a very important event. As always, networking activity with innovative International practices in architecture and engineering was excellent. Tirapelle attended many interesting presentations on design and construction innovation.

The highlight of the international conference was dinner with William Barker of SOM, structural designer of the Burj Califa (the tallest structure in the world). The tower has a very innovative buttress core, which was the key solution to attaining a height of over 800 meters.
