Office of the Future

OVERVIEW
Launched in April 2016, Dubai's 3D Printing Strategy aims to have 30 percent of the city's buildings 3D printed by 2030. Langan provided site/civil engineering services for the world's first "3D printed office" in Dubai, which opened over Summer 2016. The building houses the offices of the Dubai Future Foundation and took 17 days to build by a 3D printer with a robotic arm. The 3D printed building is a model for sustainability due to the lower costs and faster delivery.

Damac Heights

OVERVIEW
Located in the Dubai Marina, this 85-floor (420-meter tall) skyscraper will be the tallest tower in its vicinity. Langan's services included a geotechnical review of the enabling work for the development related to dewatering issues at the project site and movement of the diaphragm wall of the adjacent Diamond Tower. Based on our review of the various documents and conversations with our client, Langan concluded that the deflection of the Diamond Tower diaphragm wall was the direct result of an inadequate shoring design and lack of proper monitoring during excavation.
