Project Insights

Avoiding future loss

Four critical buildings are now equipped to handle future building movement events in rapid and informed manner greatly reducing risk of future loss from unnecessary downtime.

Promoting Awareness

In UAE, ground motion is rare, so over reaction is understandable. Together with DM, we worked on promoting educational awareness to create a better-informed public.

Showcasing Dubai's Resilient City Efforts

Dubai aims to be the smartest city by 2030. Smart resilient buildings are the foundation of resilient cities.

Unprecedented data for unprecedented architecture
