Tall Buildings: A Strategic Design Guide is an authoritative guide to the key issues and considerations associated with planning, creating and living with tall buildings.

Thoroughly reworked to reflect industry developments and experiences gained over the last ten years, this second edition imparts the advice and knowledge of more than 20 highly respected industry specialists. Key topics include: urban design and place-making; design, engineering and construction; the role of BIM; construction economics; and the all-important matter of legacy – including the challenges of adaptation and demolition.

The guide was written by Hilson Moran’s Technical Director, Nigel Clark, and WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff Director, Bill Price. Nigel has been involved in the design and construction of tall buildings for over 38 years, regularly speaking at conferences on all aspects of tall building design, with emphasis on environmentally progressive building design.

The guide is available to buy here.
