Testing time for The Tower
Developer Emaar Properties says advanced wind tunnel tests have confirmed the structural strength and durability of The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour. The tower, which will feature observation decks, accommodation and retail, has been designed by Spanish-Swiss architect Santiago Calatrava and will be located in the 6 sqkm community. Emaar said it commissioned first-of-their-kind wind tunnel tests for The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour, which it said are crucial in deciding the final height and design of the high-rise building. More than 10 different analysis and testing methods were used to analyse all possible scenarios. The tests were done to a scaled model.
