The Address Downtown, formerly The Address Downtown Dubai, is a hotel and residential skyscraper in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Built by the Emaar Properties Group, the tower soars 63 stories in above Dubai and is considered a prestige building for both commercial and residential activity. On December 31, 2015, however, a fire broke out on the building’s 20th floor. We won’t go into the details of the fire, as those are publicly available on the Internet.
After the fire, the property owners did a search for elevator consultants who could manage the vertical transportation aspects of the reconstruction. We competed, and won the honor of being the lead elevator consulting firm for the project. In addition to being proud of our participation in this project, we want to alert others who are looking for elevator consultants outside the United States and Canada that we have the expertise necessary for big projects such as this.
Often times, people look for a “local” elevator consultant, whether that’s a local elevator consultant in Milwaukee or Tulsa, or whether it’s one in Dubai or Riyadh. The point being that in today’s global economy, you can look further afield and find a truly national or international elevator consulting firm for any project. We’re proud to have worked on the Dubai project and excited to be “in the competition” for any type of major elevator consulting work, anywhere in the world – from Dubai to Argentina, Germany to China, and beyond.
