Burj Dubai Construction Detail

World’s tallest building, Burj Dubai is being constructed by the famous and well-known South Korean Company Samsung Engineering. This South Korean Company had made many famous and antique buildings and towers like Petromas Twin towers and The Taipei 101. The Samsung Engineering & Constructions is building the Burj Dubai in a join Venture with two companies, one is a Belgium Company Besix and another is Arabtec from UAE. The project manager of the main construction contract is Turner. The Reinforced is the primary structural system of Burj Dubai. They used more than 110,000 tones weighing reinforced concrete, which is over 45,000 m3 it means more than 58,900 cu yd to construct the concrete and steel foundation. This concrete and steel foundation has 192 piles buried more than 164 ft deep.

After the Burj Dubai would complete there are use of steel more than 39,000 tones and the use of concrete will touch the quantity of 330,000 m3. It is such an unbelievable thing. If this steel will lie on whole earth end-to-end then it can cover a quarter of the way. This construction will have taken about 22 million man hours.

As construction of the tower progresses, it is becomes more and more difficult for the vertical concrete pumps to pull the concrete at the head of the tower. This work had broke all the records to pump the concrete vertically and made a world wide new record.

During the extension of the Riva del Garda Hydroelectric Power Plant in Italy had the record for pumping concrete at the height of 1,745 ft in 1994.

Burj Dubai World Tallest Building Quality

During the construction, engineers and other responsible persons are taking all required quality tests, because one small mistake can make dangerous result. The head of Concrete Quality Checking has checked each batch of concrete and test it to see resist certain pressure. As the Gulf Temperature is as high as about 50 °C it is very hard to withstand the thousands of tones pressure. To solve this problem they poured the concrete at night instead of Day so the temperature is low than day. Additionally they ice to mixture the concrete to cool down the temperature. The other reason is that cooler concrete mixture is less likely to set too quickly and crack. One small crack could put the Burj Dubai project in Danger.
