Jeddah Tower in Saudi Arabia is designed to be the world’s tallest building. ESD has been involved in the project, providing mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection engineering, while the firm’s technology services group is responsible for delivering integrated consulting services for teledata, audio/visual, security and acoustics.
Mehdi Jalayerian, who performs executive oversight on the project, will present “Jeddah Tower: World’s Next Tallest Building” at the ASHRAE Illinois Chapter 2017 Spring Conference on Tuesday, March 14. He will discuss how Jeddah Tower will be a great example of how supertall buildings can promote and advance sustainable design, among offering other insights.
