Simon Ruppert, Bollinger + Grohmann Ingenieure
For civil engineers, skyscrapers, much like bridges, pose the ultimate challenge in architecture. Planning and building them requires exceptional skills and the highest possible standards. This is especially true when the building is to be erected in a confined space in the city center. Especially thin or geometrically complex structures require innovative solutions. Let us therefore undertake a structural planning journey from the idea to the skyscraper.
