Atkins' 32-storey Iris Bay tower in Dubai tops out

Atkins 32-storey Iris Bay office and retail tower in Dubai’s Business Bay has topped out.

The 170m tower designed, engineered and project managed by Atkins is made up of two identical double curved shells which are rotated and cantilevered over a four-storey podium.

At the bottom there are three levels of basement and underground parking for 920 cars.

Atkins’ resident engineer for the project Hesham Abdelaziz Gabr said: “We’re delighted the project has quietly but successfully advanced to this milestone stage.

“It was a real challenge to meet the demands of the unique design, but we have been able to keep the project fully on track.”
