At a height of 2722 feet, the Burj Khalifa is the highest building in the world. Construction on the building’s exterior started in 2004 and was completed in 2009. To construct it, reinforced concrete was employed. In 2010, the structure was made accessible to the general public.
By this programme, the nation aimed to boost its reputation abroad and diversify its economy. The building bears Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyun’s name, the president of the United Arab Emirates. The project was estimated to cost $1.5 billion in total. The structure is complemented by the world’s largest fountain, at $800 million. The extensive project’s construction encountered many challenges.
Despite the fact that the building has won numerous accolades and is well-known, labour, timely project completion, architecture, and cost were the major obstacles. The main problems with this project were the design of structures that could withstand wind pressure, project funding, and the development of an efficient sewerage system.
This was a significant, landmark project that required much effort to complete. This project was chosen as the focus of my case study as a result. This report will go through the issues as well as how they were fixed. In this report, the project’s objectives and analyses are described.
