Innovations in High-Rise Construction

  • John Norris

Abstract

Innovation in construction is achieved by challenge. I’ve therefore structured this paper to describe Olympia and York’s approach to innovation and flexibility in high-rise construction, then move on to a general assessment and conclude with what I think will happen in the future. But first I would like to give a brief picture of Olympia & York and how we approach high-rise construction.
