Picture_Section 2 - Sectors_Commercial_Super Tall BuildingsAs signature projects around the world grow in height and complexity, traditional methods of providing life safety must be supplemented with innovative approaches to unique challenges. For example, using elevators as a means of evacuating large numbers of occupants in the least amount of time possible or integrating the sciences of fire protection, security and emergency management into a master plan to be applied throughout the construction, commissioning, tenant build-out and retrofitting cycles of the building.

Every super tall building project involves multiple occupancies from residential units, hotels and retail shopping venues to large scale assembly facilities and underground parking. Each of these occupancies requires a specialized approach to life safety.

JENSEN HUGHES has the technical expertise, scope of services and most important, the project experience to offer leading edge, yet practical, solutions to owners, design teams and construction firms on these megaprojects.
