Important high-rise buildings are designed by a team of specialized professionals. The selection of a structural system requires knowledge of the appropriate factors of materials and construction together with an awareness of the requirements of architecture and services. As an example, this paper deals with composite construction — the mixed use of large scale steel and concrete units, and the combined use of both in individual elements. It shows how the designer addresses material properties and costs to advantage. Specific reference is made to buildings in the 50-story range. Future trends in the design and construction process are discussed.
