By 2050, two-thirds of the world’s population will live in a city. In the developing world, around 80% of the tall buildings required to house growing urban populations are yet to be built. This presents a huge opportunity for structural engineers, who also need to design in a more efficient manner and using lower carbon materials.
As structural engineers and built professionals learn to challenge assumptions, employ a systematic approach towards efficiency, try to reduce costs, and contend with increasing significant restrictions outside their control (e.g., street layout, proximity to other buildings and airspace considerations), collaboration between all party involved is key.
This webinar will explore the best collaborative practices available to structural engineers and built professionals designing tall buildings that have the future at their forefront.
Identify the base assumptions that should be challenged to save both carbon and costs
Discover how applying a systematic approach to multi-objective optimisation can positively impact your designs
Understand how the evolving best-practice for the design of tall buildings can be applied more broadly in designing smaller scale residential projects
Find out the benefits of adopting performance-based designed, rather than material-based design

Diego has extensive experience in tall building design, working in the UK, South America and the Middle East. He leads the decarbonisation strategy for WSP UK, focused towards creating zero-carbon buildings and addressing the climate emergency. Working alongside some of the biggest names in architecture, Diego leads an international team of engineers and technicians who provide beautiful and efficient design solutions to complex engineering and architectural challenges, with a strong focus on sustainability.
Karen is a former founding partner of PLP Architecture, and former partner of KPF’s London office. Throughout the last decade, she has been involved with designing tall buildings in Europe. Karen’s design approach stems from an analytical process, a respect for context, and the integration of technology and materials, with the aim of making better places in which to work and live. Karen led the team on the design and construction of the City of London’s tallest tower, 22 Bishopgate, while working at the architectural firm PLP, and has recently set up a new architectural practice, ‘Spice’.
Adam has over 17 years of experience in the design of large building projects. He currently leads the Ramboll High Rise team in London, directing a group of structural and building services engineers and computational designers in delivering high quality and holistic tall building designs. Adam’s approach to design focuses on the quality of the product and he is recognised for his critical thinking skills and ability to evaluate projects, designs and risks.
