Kingdom Tower

In the ever-continuing battle of the Super Talls, Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architects are currently in the design phases of what will be the new tallest building in the world.  Upon completion, The Kingdom Tower in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia will rise more than 1,000 meters, dwarfing the current World’s Tallest Building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, UAE, by more than 172 meters.  In addition, the Tower will house over 280,000 square meters GFA (gross floor area) and will be paired with a retail mall sized at over 97,000 square meters GFA.

Lerch Bates Inc. has been selected as specialty consultants to work with Smith + Gill Architects to provide Materials Management/Materials Handling and Waste Management services on this globally iconic, world class building.
