Shanghai Tower

Shanghai, China

Client: Shanghai Tower Construction and Development Co. Ltd.

WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff Role: Owner’s Engineer

Shanghai Tower
At 632 meters (2,075 feet) tall, the Shanghai Tower is the tallest building in China and one of the most sustainable and intelligent buildings in the world. Located in the heart of Shanghai’s Luijiazui Finance and Trade Zone, adjacent to the Shanghai World Financial Center, the Shanghai Tower will offer office space, entertainment venues, retail facilities, conference center, a luxury hotel, and cultural amenities within its 128 stories.

As owner’s engineer, Parsons Brinckerhoff is responsible for all of Shanghai Tower’s mechanical, electrical, plumbing, drainage, and vertical transportation systems, and is playing a key role in obtaining LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification for the skyscraper. 

Parsons Brinckerhoff recommended several innovative design alternatives, including redesign of the vertical transportation system, which improved the overall efficiency and directly increased the amount of commercial space available in the tower. 

Improved use of space was realized through adaptation of an alternative vertical transportation plan, which freed up space for commercial use while increasing the efficiency of the elevator and escalator system. Parsons Brinckerhoff’s work included a review of other system options in pursuit of innovative design applications.

Awarded LEED “Gold” pre-certification by the United States Green Building Council, the Shanghai Tower has been designed to target the Green Three-Star China Award by the China Green Building Committee. 

Parsons Brinckerhoff assisted with the incorporation of green technology that includes energy-generating wind turbines, solar panels, and green building service systems.

Work on the Shanghai Tower began in 2008. Interior construction will continue through 2014, and it is expected to be open to the public in 2015.
