Advanced multi-storey residential apartments, Maison Express offers high-end spaces for abode and is spread across an area of 9,00,000 sq.ft.
The main 60-storey tower incorporates residential, office and hotel zones with a common podium Ramboll was appointed as structural engineer on this project. The main vertical elements are reinforced concrete, providing stability against wind and seismic activity. The floor slabs are post-tensioned concrete. The structural integrity of these slabs presented a challenge as it featured a typical step between the office section and the rest of the floors and contained a large opening that formed a ‘U’ shape to the floor plan. A number of column and shear walls were transferred from one location to another at the lower tower area which were quite distinctive structurally. A separate car park building, 16 storeys high, with a swimming pool and gymnasium on the roof, were also designed by Ramboll, incorporating reinforced concrete on the ground floor with steel columns and beams supporting the composite metal decking slabs on the floors above.
London's Royal Docks area in Docklands is to be redeveloped as a mixed-use complex accommodating new-technology companies, educational facilities and high quality office and residential space, all within close reach of the ExCeL exhibition centre and London City Airport.

A tired 1960s office block has been transformed with a series of extensions, a new façade treatment and improved circulation. An previous two storey extension at the front of the building has been demolished to make way for a new four storey one, and a two storey structure has been added at the rear, on a site that previously served as a carpark.The tower's twelfth storey has been removed and a steel frame penthouse added in its place to house residential units. Additional plant supports an increased services requirement that includes air conditioning, and new lifts improve access. Reducing depth of scree at each floor plate has streamlined the structure so that only localised strengthening to the existing foundation was required.

Ramboll is advising on one of the first LEED Platinum developments in the Middle East King Abdullah Petroleum Studies & Research Center (KAPSARC) is a community development comprising a research centre, community facilities and single family residential buildings in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The community facilities, with seven buildings, are pursuing LEED Platinum under the LEED NC for Multiple Buildings, making it one of the first developments targeting this rating in the Middle East. In addition, the single family residential development of 200 residential buildings is targeting a Platinum rating under the LEED for Homes, the first project to attempt this outside of North America. The project adopts sustainable design and construction practices from the concept stage to achieve the Platinum certification and to reduce the carbon footprint of the project from a life cycle perspective. The project introduces multiple on-site renewable energy systems and water saving strategies. In addition, the project limits site disturbance through considerate design and the implementation of a construction activities management plan. The project also promotes biodiversity through ecology rehabilitation.
