Jeddah Tower in Saudi Arabia is designed to be the world’s tallest building. ESD’s High Performance Building Team and Technology Services Group has been involved in the project, providing integrated consulting engineering services for mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, teledata, audio/visual, security and acoustics systems.

Mehdi Jalayerian, whose expertise includes major high-rise and supertall buildings, and the Jeddah Tower team will discuss the project during  “Case Study on High Performance Buildings” at the BuiltWorlds Buildings 2.0 Conference in Chicago on Thursday, March 14. Jalayerian and others will speak about the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection work involved, along with the technology, architecture, structural and vertical transportation aspects of the building. They will also touch upon how Jeddah Tower will be a great example of how supertall buildings can promote and advance sustainable design.
