Senior Architect, Alison Haigh, is to speak at this year’s Tall Buildings Conference.
Alison has 20 years' experience specialising in the residential sector. She has led multi-disciplinary teams on all stages in the design and development of residential high-rise including refurbishment and new build for registered social landlords, private developers and contractor clients.
Alison’s speech will address the rapid increase in high-rise living, looking at how, with pressure to accommodate a growing population, tall buildings are being recognised as a crucial section of our housing mix.
Her presentation will examine the key factors that need to be taken into consideration when designing high rise living including, how to foster a sense of community, sustainability, and how form, shape and technical complexity drive the cost of a tall building and are key factors in their viability.
The Tall Buildings Conference is intended to assist engineers in understanding the common challenges associated with transferring standard engineering principles from low-rise structures to tall buildings. The conference will highlight design and building technology innovation in the UK high-rise sector facilitating learning and knowledge transfer plus providing a platform for discussion and debate.
The event is aimed at major city developers, investors, local authorities and architects, engineers and contractors that are focusing on the delivery of tall buildings.
