Al-Borouj Misr Developments engaged RWDI Company, an engineering consultancy specializing in wind engineering and its effects on skyscrapers, to conduct wind engineering studies for the Sixty Iconic Tower project in the new administrative capital (NAC).
Al-Borouj Misr Vice President Mohamed Assy said the company has completed all studies related to wind engineering for the Sixty Iconic Tower project.
Assy said RWDI will be responsible for conducting studies on the effects of wind on the Sixty Iconic Tower to ensure the quality and efficiency of the building to cope with all weather conditions.
He added that wind engineering is one of the essential studies carried out by consulting firms to identify the effect of wind on buildings. The company adopted these studies when designing the project to achieve the greatest operational efficiency.
Al-Borouj Misr will be the first company to implement the latest results of these studies, which the rest of the tower developers will follow as an essential condition for obtaining the license for skyscrapers in the NAC, Assy noted.
He pointed out that the Sixity Iconic Tower project is located on 13,000 m² in front of the Central Business District of the New Capital and includes 45 floors, in addition to 5 underground floors dedicated to parking.
The project will be built on 60% of its size with a gross sales area reaching over 55,000 m². The project includes administrative and commercial units in addition to serviced apartments. Al-Borouj Misr has also contracted with the English consultancy Dsa Architect International, which has over 35 years of experience in the design of towers and skyscrapers, for the design of the project.
