Summary High-rise construction typically implies a multi-storey structure approximately between forty to hundred and twenty meters tall (approximately twelve to forty storeys). On the other hand, composite materials are those made from two or more constituents generally with considerably dissimilar physical or chemical compositions. The focal point in this paper is in-particular on high-rise construction and whether or not composite materials' structural integrity, and long-term sustainability, is comparable to that of a traditional building. To assess the composite materials' structural integrity, Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) will also be utilised. While, composites possess different characteristics from those common to traditional materials; the universal purpose of producing such materials is to produce matters, which are stronger, lighter, and commonly less expensive. Generally, in construction, the composite materials typically include geo-polymers, fiber-reinforced concrete and others. For high-rise construction, these composite materials require to bear a variety of demanding conditions, including high winds and seismic conditions, which are important design factors for such structures. Nevertheless, a particular benefit of composite materials for high rise construction is their overall ability to maintain structural integrity despite their lack of conventional composition. The composite materials are traditionally utilised for high-rise buildings in order to reinforce the overall structural integrity. Accordingly, this paper will also include a number of case studies to support the ever-increasing utilization of composite materials for high-rise construction.
