The ever changing urban landscape forms the focus of the latest Construction Global magazine, which is now live and ready to read.  

Our cover interview looks at how innovation in elevator designs can transform the makeup of tall buildings. Andreas Schierenbeck, CEO of the $9bn elevator division of German industrial giant thyssenkrupp, talked to us about its MULTI and MAX solutions, designed to free up architectural creativity and reduce downtime of these vital high-rise transit systems.

“Many rope-based elevator systems need a transfer lobby at a certain height, which is wasting another floor completely as people are going out of one elevator into another,” he tells us. “It’s a waste of space, material and money from my point of view, and it is costing us productivity and GDP, just as a traffic jam does in London or other big cities.”

Turn to page 10 to see how the MULTI can solve this longstanding problem.

Elsewhere, our top 10 looks at the most expensive infrastructure projects that have also transformed their respective landscapes, while other hot topics covered this month include building information modelling, green MEP projects, and sustainable supply chain operations.

Finally, the issue rounds off with further exclusive insights from Charter Hall, Digita Oy, Groningen Seaports, Server Farm and Siemens Building Technologies.
