100 of the World’s Tallest Buildings: Top Company Rankings

The Council is pleased to announce the Top Company Rankings for numerous disciplines as derived from the list of projects appearing in 100 of the World’s Tallest Buildings. This book is the latest edition in the CTBUH “100 Tallest” series, which represents a snapshot of the tallest buildings complete or under construction at the time of publication. We now recognize the achievements of the companies responsible for these buildings, ranking them by the number of published projects across multiple disciplines. Click on the links to the left to see each representative discipline, as well as the list of buildings that appear in the book and graphics that illustrate how the towers vary by location, structural material, and function. Also find here the criteria used to determine which disciplines were represented in the study.
