Lakhta Center, an ESD Project, Is Almost Finished

The Lakhta Center, an office building in St. Petersburg, Russia that soars above 1,500 feet, is nearing the final stages of construction.

ESD collaborated with the project team to provide peer review. ESD’s High Performance Building Group – which has worked on skyscrapers around the world – examined the extremely complex floor plan (which involved double-walled cavities to protect against the cold) and offered solutions on how best to improve the building’s construction, performance and sustainability.
