Akhmat Tower

Grozny, Chechen Republic, Russia

Akhmat Tower features high-performance-building features to maximize the comfort, productivity of the occupants and minimize energy consumption and life-cycle costs.

ESD’s PEP Studio provided full MEP/FP, Building Automation Control, and security consulting and design services for the 430-meter tower in Grozny, Russia. We completed predictive energy models to estimate energy consumption and the performance of energy conservation measures in the exterior envelope design, plug load and lighting reductions, and HVAC systems.

The design incorporates high-performance systems throughout the entire tower, including the tilted aluminum façade that keeps out solar gain.

The 8-story atrium and typical tower floors provide natural ventilation, using the natural convection of air to cool it in the summer and capture heat in the winter.
