Burj Dubai, World Tallest Building In Dubai

About Burj Dubai Skyscrapers - World Tallest Building In Dubai

Burj Dubai, the skyscraper is under construction in Dubai District. It will go to be world’s tallest man-made building ever built. This skyscraper is constructing at Downtown Dubai, at Doha Street along with Sheikh Zayed Road. Construction of this project was begun on 21st September, 2004 and expected to be completed and ready for use in September 2009.

Burj Dubai Tower Hight

This tower is also expected to break the record for tallest man-made building, which is held by 2,072ft tall the wire-assisted KVLY-TV mast in North Dakota, US. The developer, Emaar Properties said that the final height of Burj Dubai is kept secret till completion. Last year, Local media reports said that Burj Dubai’s final height would be 818 meters.

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. But now Burj Dubai has achieved this record as the date of 19th August 2008, as it has pumped concrete to 1,759 ft. On 8th November 2008 Burj Dubai will broke its own record and register a new record to pump the concrete at the 1,972 ft. According to our data, Burj Dubai had achieved a height of 2,320 ft on 26th September, 2008.When the world’s tallest skyscraper would build, and it will have more than 160 floors with about 56 elevators. There are also apartments, shops, corporate suits, offices and swimming pools. The Burj Dubai would be the only skyscraper which has the most floors. This man-made skyscraper has set the record of highest vertical concrete pumping of about 1972 ft, before this project the record of highest vertical concrete pumping was named on Riva del Garda Hydroelectric Power Plant which was 1,745 ft.

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.
Total budget for the Burj Dubai project is about US$ 4.1 billion. The CEO of Emaar Properties, Mohamed Ali Alabbar had said the price of office space at Burj Dubai had were sold at about $4,000 per sq ft it means around $43,000 per sq meter and that the Armani Residences, in Burj Dubai had reached about $3,500 per sq ft.

Worlds Tallest Man

Worlds tallest man- a kind gentleman at heart

Recognized as the tallest living man in the world at present, Bao Xishun is a Mongolian herdsman of world acclaim. He is recognized as being the worlds tallest man by the Guinness Book of World Records and is 7 feet 9 inches, or 2.36m tall. The title of being the worlds tallest man has had to pass through some rough patches in the last few months.

Bao’s title of being the worlds tallest man was conceded to Leonid Stadnyk, a Ukrainian by nationality, but was returned back to him earlier this year after Stadnyk refused to be measured by the Guinness authorities according to their rules and regulations. Xishun, born in 1951, is said to have measured 236 cm in a hospital at the Chifeng city in China. Two other people, both from Asia- Ajaz Ahmed and Vikas Uppal, have claimed to be over 8 feet tall, but neither of them has been able to prove their claims according to the format laid down by the Guinness Book of World records.
Bao is supposed to have grown at a normal pace till he was 16 years old, after which he experienced this sudden surge in size and ended up with his present height of 7 feet 9 inches just seven years later, at the age of 23. Bao later served the Liberation Army for a span of three years and also played in the army basketball team. After serving the army for a span of more than three years, the worlds tallest man started complaining of rheumatism and related problems, which is attributed to his sleeping in the outdoors during his childhood, rather than being unconventionally tall.

The worlds tallest man is a celebrated man all over the world. His wedding is supposed to be a famous one for his small, rather sleepy hometown. The wedding was supposedly sponsored by a dozen companies and the guests were invited from all over the world. Bao also holds quite a number of endorsement deals with companies, and spends most of his time promoting these products all over China.

Bao’s story of becoming the worlds tallest man is a rather fascinating one. When he had retired himself out of the Liberation army, after feeling the pain associated with rheumatism, Bao took quite some time to find a new job. He was offered the job of a ‘greeter’ at a local restaurant. This is where Bao came in solemn contact with a lot of people, some of whom were associated with the media and therefore, gave him the attention he had always desired and deserved.
Bao became an instant success with the media and was very popular in his own nation. It was the local media only that is believed to have applied to the Guinness Book of World records on Bao’s behalf to nominate him for being the worlds tallest man. He was measured to be taller than the previous record holder Radhuaone Charbib by about 2mm, and thus, at the age of 40, Bao was officially entitled as being the worlds tallest man.

Bao has been known as a kind man all over the world. One of the most famous incidents that have earned Bao the reputation of being a kind hearted person is when Bao saved the lives of two Dolphins in 2006. The dolphins are believed to swallowed plastic shards by mistake, which had led to a sudden deterioration of health. When the veterinarians had failed to remove those shards from the dolphins’ stomachs, Bao was called upon to help remove them. The worlds tallest man, with his 1.06m long arm helped in removing those plastic shards right from within the stomachs of the dolphins.

Everything that Bao has done in his life has been a much discussed affair, especially after he got listed in the Guinness Book of World records as the worlds tallest man. His marriage to a saleswoman belonging to the town of Chifeng-which also happens to be Bao’s own hometown-was largely discussed in the local media, especially owing to the fact that his wife was literally half his age and size.

There have been a lot of apprehensions about Bao and his life, but one thing has clearly stood up- that Bao is a true gentleman, who loves to enjoy the status of being the worlds tallest man.
