The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat recently released 100 of the World’s Tallest Buildings, a book detailing the Top Company Rankings for numerous disciplines as derived from the projects found within the book's pages.

As part of its company rankings, the top structural engineers were listed and ranked according to the number of buildings within the 100 tallest they have completed work on. Arup, the top firm on the list, has worked on almost one-fifth of the world’s 100 tallest buildings.

Thornton Tomasetti and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill round out the top three, with each company reaching double digits for the number of the tallest buildings they have worked on.
