Abstract
Actors in the Swedish building industry have shown interest to build tall buildings in Sweden. It
has historically been very few high rises and skyscrapers built and therefore the experience and
traditions of high rise buildings are limited in Sweden.

The aim of this thesis was to collect and present experiences from high-rise buildings, both from
national and international high rise projects. The information was mainly collected from
interviews with stakeholders in various high rise projects and studies of popular science articles.

The design of a high rise structure is more complex in comparison with a low-rise building. The
completed design must meet high standards because of its tall structure and because the... (More)
Actors in the Swedish building industry have shown interest to build tall buildings in Sweden. It
has historically been very few high rises and skyscrapers built and therefore the experience and
traditions of high rise buildings are limited in Sweden.

The aim of this thesis was to collect and present experiences from high-rise buildings, both from
national and international high rise projects. The information was mainly collected from
interviews with stakeholders in various high rise projects and studies of popular science articles.

The design of a high rise structure is more complex in comparison with a low-rise building. The
completed design must meet high standards because of its tall structure and because the buildings
are used as offices and residential space.

In regions where high-rise buildings are common, the methods for constructing this type of
structure are well established. The structural system and production method are chosen
specifically for each project where the most influential factors are the design height, geographical
location (city center, climate, etc.) and design loads (wind loads, earthquake, etc.).

Historically, high constructions have been built with a steel frame. The development of
concrete’s properties and its production management has led to the prevalence of concrete
frames for high rises. Concrete has many properties that make the material suitable for high-rise
structures. The weight of the concrete gives good resistance to horizontal loads and the material
is good from an acoustic point of view. One of the most desirable properties of concrete is the
ductility that offers a widespread area of usage. (Less)
