A4 (Il Primo) Tower is a 76 story residential tower, with 3-storey mixed-use podium and 6-level basements. Located on plot A4, adjacent to the newly constructed Dubai Opera House and Burj Khalifa, the development is strategically located in the heart of the new Opera District, within Downtown Dubai.
One of the critical acoustic design elements for all types of buildings is to ensure that the façade provides sufficient sound insulation to enable the occupants to go about their daily activities without being disturbed by unwanted noise from external sources such as road traffic and airplanes.

Recently Buildings and Structures Director Brian Hillesdon caught up with The National to discuss the future of tall towers and more specifically talking about what UAE developers need to keep track of to change lifestyles and prevent their towers becoming obsolete.
The high costs of constructing mega-tall towers means that space at their upper reaches is typically only within reach of the wealthiest occupiers, which means international grade AAA offices, 6-star hotels and luxury apartments. There can therefore be no compromise on quality. The occupants of mega-tall towers do not expect to have to queue for the lift, or to have to cram in once it arrives.
