At a height to width ratio of around 10.5, the Tower is one of the most slender buildings in the world for such a height.

Meinhardt is currently engineering what will be the second-tallest skyscraper in Malaysia. In a vibrant metropolitan city like Kuala Lumpur, the architectural makeup of the city is constantly evolving. Meinhardt was appointed as Civil and Structural Engineering Consultants for the Four Seasons Place, a towering skyscraper which will add to the fast-changing Kuala Lumpur skyline. The Four Seasons Place is a high-end integrated development project comprising over 300,000 square feet of luxury retail space, with over 230 hotel rooms, as well as hotel service apartments and residences. The 65-storey hotel and residential tower is located next to Malaysia’s cultural landmark, the Petronas Twin Towers. Standing at 320m (342m to the Crown), it will be the second-tallest building in Malaysia when completed in August 2017. Meinhardt’s proven track record in Tall Buildings means that the team is well-equipped with the experience and expertise to take on this highly-challenging project due to the tower’s height to width ratio of 10.5. The impact of this extreme slenderness was evident from the wind tunnel studies which revealed challenging wind design conditions in the form of significant wake vortices and strong cross wind effects. The key challenge therefore was to address the slenderness related building drift and human comfort issues while ensuring that space planning of the Tower is not negatively impacted.
