    CTBUH Awarded Research Grant to Study Structural Systems

    In a dramatic step forward for the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat’s research department, steel giant ArcelorMittal has awarded the CTBUH a $300,000 grant to study the life cycle of structural systems in tall buildings. The two-year study, announced during the 9th World Congress dinner in Shanghai, will focus on different aspects of the long-term sustainability of different frameworks of towers more than 300 meters. “At the end we hope to have a tool to reassess the sustainability of tall buildings,” said Jean-Claude Gerardy, manager, commercial sections sales and marketing for ArcelorMittal.
