Etihad Tower Overview

Etihad Towers occupies a prestigious location on the southern end of the Abu Dhabi Corniche. The mixed-use development covers 460,000 square meters set over five elegant towers ranging from 53 to 77 floors. In 2006, AECOM was awarded the preparation of construction stage documents and drawings, and construction supervision for the project, which was carried out in a single phase.

The five towers required specific engineering for tall buildings. This included structural amendments to deal with seismic movement and wind loading. For the latter, the structure was designed to accommodate wind loading without the necessity for damper tanks which would have restricted the progression of design and structural elegance. The design of mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) services, including firefighting systems, incorporated intermediate plant rooms. Also, an elevator strategy was designed for the installation of 72 lifts.

With the five towers each exceeding 50 floors, extensive MEP services such as firefighting systems specific for tall buildings were put in place. Window washing facilities for the building were also devised to ensure that the glass exterior can be kept clean. The construction of enabling works started in July 2006 and the project was completed in 2012.
