BMT Fluid Mechanics has won a consultancy contract at Emaar Properties’ The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour.

The firm, which is a subsidiary of BMT Group, will act as the megaproject’s wind engineering consultant.

The latest contract was awarded by Aurecon, which was itself selected by The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour’s designer, Santiago Calatrava, as the engineer and architect of record for the project.

Headquartered in London with regional offices in Abu Dhabi, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, New York, and Singapore, BMT Fluid Mechanics specialises in the fields of wind engineering, architectural aerodynamics, and building physics.

Once completed, the skyscraper will be approximately 100m taller than Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, another Emaar project that, at 828m, holds the current world record for tallest manmade structure.

The Tower at Dubai Creek Harbour will feature a net of steel cables that attaches to a central reinforced concrete column. At the top of the structure, an oval bud will house several observation decks to offer 360° views of the city.

With an estimated cost of $1bn (AED3.67bn), the 928m-high supertall structure is expected to complete in 2020.
