Sweett Group’s work on tall and super-tall buildings includes The Shard in London, the CMA Tower in Riyadh, and the Wuhan Tower in China.
"Whilst the experience gained on these complex and demanding structures readily translates across borders, they are each unique to their specific locations and a high degree of local knowhow is essential in their successful delivery, something Sweett Group excels at providing," said Kim Berry, Sweett Group’s Asia Pacific MD.Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
