The Mohammed VI Tower is a 255 m high building and is the tallest tower in the Bouregreg Valley Development Project in Morocco. With 55 floors, it features a luxurious hotel, offices, upscale apartments, and a stunning viewpoint on the terrace. The project also includes a two-level reinforced concrete podium of 26,650 m² with a steel roof. The tower and podium structures are designed to withstand strong winds, seismic events, and potential flooding from the neighboring Bouregreg River. The tower's strength comes from a 70% reinforced concrete core and a 30% Vierendeel steel structure in the facade. The foundation consists of a 3.5 m thick raft and 104 deep "barrettes" foundations, while the podium is supported by 1800 piles. The building is designed to achieve LEED Gold and HQE certifications, adhering to the highest international environmental standards. 

This project is a winner in the SCIA User Contest 2023.

Particularly impressive because of the use of the software for verifying the complex stability system of the asymmetric core to resist wind-, seismic- and flooding loads.
