Bill Price is a director of WSP Cantor Seinuk and a structural engineer by background. The talk will cover the design of high rise buildings and explain why it is special. The form of construction in the UK has gathered pace in recent years and many regional cities as well as London have seen tall structures become part of the landscape. The London WSP office works closely with the New York WSP office and this exchange of ideas and expertise keeps the engineering up to international standards. Bill will describe the key engineering issues for high rise design including core design, lateral movement, dynamics, foundations, special materials and overall stability. In addition Bill will comment on fire safety, security and sustainability as these factors impact on the engineering solutions for economic and efficient structures.

This talk is part of the Engineering Department Structures Research Seminars series.
