ENR recently named Langan Senior Principal Alan Poeppel as a “Top 25 Newsmaker” for his work on Saudi Arabia’s 1-kilometer-plus-tall Jeddah Tower, formerly known as the Kingdom Tower.
Each year ENR salutes influencers in construction, showcasing the depth of the global construction industry. Poeppel and his team developed a foundation that would accommodate a gravity load of 860,000 metric tons, almost double that of the world’s currently tallest tower. One of the challenges that Poeppel’s team had to overcome is Jeddah’s bedrock, which is ten times softer than Manhattan bedrock. Langan is providing site/civil, geotechnical, and transportation engineering services for the project.
