Innovative Solutions to High Rise Structures...
To deliver an innovative approach to high rise development, MLM have a team with internationally recognised expertise
in structural design of complex High Rise Structures, providing unique, value engineered solutions to buildings throughout
the world, in particular the Middle East, South America, Europe and Asia.

Understanding High Rise Economy...
We strive to maximise client benefit in reaching for height to:
Achieve economies of scale
Maximise useable floor area
Use commodity materials wherever possible
Simplify through repetition of form
Squeeze the structure/services sandwich
Optimise floor plate occupied by services and transportation risers
We design complete structural frames and have particular expertise in:

Tall buildings
Design management
Deep basements
Top down construction
Large scale 3D dynamic analysis
Seismic design
Post-tensioned concrete design and detailing

Page 8
Understanding High Rise Economy...
We are expert in the effective use of international codes of practice including:
• American Standards
• British Standards
• Euro Codes
Technology is the key to innovation in design and construction. First class structural analysis promotes real structural
integrity by exposing potential solutions which might not be obvious or simply intuitive. We enjoy transforming intractable
problems into practical solutions; and making expensive structures affordable.
Computer technology and high speed communications are essential for the timely delivery of high quality engineering.
Continual investment in BIM and 3D technology enable us to maintain consistently high levels of productivity to respond
to our client’s needs.
Our designs make best use of modern construction methods while bringing the maximum benefit from construction materials. We keep our capability sharp through our value engineering commissions and our work with specialist contractors.
Through our work in post-tensioned concrete, tall buildings and design of deep basements we consistently deliver thinner,
longer-spanning floors, higher net/gross floor area ratios and less costly, more timely underground solutions that create

Rob leads the Structures Unit within
MLM and is Director responsible
for the team in London. He has a
passion for engineering design and
ensures a ‘hands on’ involvement on
all projects. He has a specialism in
design and construct work and has
developed strong relationships in this
sector. His success, in part, is due
to his unique approach to risk and
opportunity management and value
engineering. It is also attributed to
his general approach to creating
simple, elegant and cost effective
solutions to complex structural
Rob believes that his team should
be equipped with the very latest
tools and training and in this way,
he can offer his clients the optimum
structural solutions. All designers
therefore have access to state of
the art design and analysis and 3D
draughting tools. Rob has a special
interest in sustainable structural
solutions and has been instrumental
in developing software to assist
our clients in selecting low carbon
solutions. In fact, several of his
recent projects have been awarded
RIBA prizes for sustainability.

The Woodberry Down Regeneration scheme is one of the
most exciting mixed community, self funding developments in
London. Working with award winning architects Rolfe Judd
and Wilkinson Eyre, MLM’s involvement in this major £1billion
regeneration for social and private housing comprised Building
Services, Geotechnical, Civil and Structural Engineering
services, as well as specialist investigation and remediation
The size and complex nature of the project demanded careful
co-ordination between adoptable roads, drainage, landscaping,
vehicle access, service zones, plant rooms, downstand beams
and specialist cladding requirements.

Community will occupy a derelict site on New England Street,
part of the New England Quarter, close to Brighton train station.
The Brighton design has been developed in accordance with
the 10 ‘One Planet Living’ principles in order to provide a
comprehensive and lifestyle orientated approach to sustainability
by making it easy, attractive and affordable to live sustainably.
A key aspect of One Planet Living is to achieve near to zero
carbon emissions, as well as to provide a zero waste plan.

generous sunny roof terraces to the penthouses. This new
piece of city is completed by a sinuous terrace of housing with
more commercial space at street level which mediates between
the new infrastructure of the stadium and the neighbouring

spaces, gymnasium, dental surgery and external recreational
spaces. MLM have undertaken the fully detailed design of the
first two phases and masterplan building services strategy for
later phases.
A basement energy centre utilising a biomass district heating
system and CHP unit will be provided. The energy centre has
sufficient capacity to serve a development masterplan of over
1,000 dwellings.

Air Traffic Control Room,
Muscat International Airport
MLM were asked by air traffic control room specialists Tex ATC
to assist with the structural design on the Air Traffic Control
Room of Muscat International Airport.
Structural challenges included dealing with columns in the
room that were reducing important 360° visibility. The 85m
high concrete tower also needed to withstand extremes of
temperature, 85mph winds and the occasional earthquake
without losing the integrity of its fully glazed, 4m high envelope.
Our services included:
• Advising on optimal structural form to acheive efficiency
while maintaining buildability, transportability and
compatability with tight constraints on visibility and
accommodating building services
• Preparing a detailed calculations package for presentation
to the client and providing support during a rigorous
checking process
• Advising on detailed design of bespoke steelwork details

We utilise the latest, most efficient design and draughting packages. We have embraced using sophisticated and industry
changing Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology.
We recognise that excellent project visuals aid project understanding, but we know that BIM technology is about more than
creating a 3D building model. BIM technology allows us the tools to bring together a range of information about a project’s
physical and functional features across its lifecycle.
We also understand that BIM technology is constantly evolving and we are committed to updating our processes to fully
realise the potential of this powerful information technology.
