Advanced high rise design

Ramboll’s dedicated team of high rise experts has completed over 150 tall building projects globally - including some of the most technically challenging such as the world’s most leaning tower.

Placing people first 

Our philosophy is to prioritise quality of life for building users and place people at the heart of our designs. By making room for the human experience and creating distinctive spaces for living, working and leisure, we help bring to life the attractive buildings envisaged by architects and increase rentability. 

Maximising returns 

Our innovative engineering designs for tall buildings are focused on maximising returns for clients by delivering the best achievable net to gross. We always seek to achieve cost savings without compromising on quality, whilst our bold solutions maximise lettable area. Through early engagement with clients and architects, we determine the project drivers and the best conceptual designs.

Leaders in off-site construction

We have decades of experience using off-site fabrication of concrete structural sections to speed up on-site construction and ensure high quality standards. This method is safer, simpler and brings huge programme savings compared to traditional in-situ concrete. 

A complete service for tall buildings 

Our high rise specialists understand that the success of tall building design depends on the relationship between the structure and services. We therefore combine advanced analytical tools with a complete palate of high rise technical expertise to design building cores that create maximum value and solve our clients biggest challenges. 

Smart and sustainable design 

We are experienced in applying smart technology in buildings to increase energy efficiency, reduce overheads, and enhance workplace environments and productivity. With licenced assessors in 20 environmental accreditation schemes including LEED and BREEAM, we are qualified to help clients realise their sustainability ambitions.

Bella Sky hotel

Bella Sky: The hotel which leans and twists

Leaning at a gravity-defying 15 degree angle, Bella Sky Hotel in Copenhagen’s Ørestad offers a sight never seen before: Two towers leaning in opposite directions at an angle almost four times that of the leaning tower of Pisa. The geometrical dare continues as the top nine floors of tower one and the bottom nine floors of tower two both twist an additional 19 degrees horizontally.

CityLife Milan

CityLife Milan technical reviews

The 43 hectare CityLife development occupies the site of Milan’s former fairground and exhibition site (Fiera Campionaria). Its combination of residences, offices, retail space and public facilities are arrayed around a large park — Europe’s biggest privately funded park development. We worked in collaboration with J&A Consultants on technical reviews of the architects’ schemes. Our combined refinements and suggestions produced savings sufficient to cover our fees five times over.
