Thornton Tomasetti Sponsors 2012 CTBUH World Congress in Shanghai

July 02, 2012

Thornton Tomasetti, the international engineering firm, is a confirmed Silver Sponsor for The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat’s (CTBUH) 9th World Congress, to be held September 19 to 21 at the Grand Hyatt Jin Mao in Shanghai, China.

Drawing on 43 years of experience organizing the world’s premier tall building conferences, CTBUH’s Shanghai Congress will be an international gathering of those involved in the inception, design, construction and operation of tall buildings.

Key Points
• Shanghai is uniquely positioned for a conference of this stature and subject material. China has more tall buildings currently under construction than any other country, driven largely by the rapid urbanization of its population.

• In addition to the central Congress theme of “Asia Ascending: Age of the Sustainable Skyscraper City,” there will be several themed tracks running across the three-day event: Planning & Infrastructure for Sustainable Skyscraper Cities; Best-Practice Urban and Building Case Studies: Asia; The Latest Design & Technical Advances in Tall Buildings; and Academic Research Advancements.

• Thornton Tomasetti Founding Principal Richard L. Tomasetti, P.E., NAE, Hon. AIA will moderate the panel “How Tall Can We Go (and Why Should We?)” and Vice President Paul Fu, P.E. and Senior Principal Yi Zhu will participate in other panels at the event.
