A significant increase in the construction of high-rise buildings in Russia is observed in the last decades. Ekaterinburg takes the second place in Russia after Moscow as regards the annual construction volumes. The first high-rise buildings in the Urals region were built as early as in 19th century and the height of these buildings reached approximately 75 meters. Nowadays, two northernmost skyscrapers in the world are located in Ekaterinburg, one of which is a part of a business district

The incompleteness of the Russian regulatory basis for designing high-rise buildings makes it necessary to carry out a large amount of additional design and construction processes. Therefore, despite the experience of previous projects, designers have to create individual innovative design solutions for every new high-rise building. This article describes the features of design of the high-rise building is the Iset Tower, located in Ekaterinburg. Basic design conditions are described and architectural, planning, and design features of the building are reviewed. The effects of harmful factors, acting on the building frame and including the wind loads, are analyzed. Some distinctive features of the analysis of the bearing structures are given. The conclusion contains the summary on specifics of high-rise buildings design and construction in the Urals.
