intro Making the world's tallest building
The first process
The tower will stop on the foundation frame triangle-thick 3.7 million supported by 192 rounded steel piles or support cylinders measuring 1.5m in diameter and extending 50m (164 ft) below ground.

The second process
High strength concrete is used to help achieve stability in ultra-high structure. Burj Dubai is designed to withstand earthquakes measuring up to six on the Richter scale. It also will remain steady during severe winds up to 55m per second.

Eye in the Sky
To ensure the structural stability during construction of the Burj Dubai, the tower vertical and lateral movements are tracked with the help of satellite-based positioning systems globally. During construction, any change in the distribution of building load is closely monitored in real time through the use of more than 700 sensors embedded in its structure.

The fourth process
Most of the 47-month construction schedule for the Burj Tower is essentially a repetition of a three-day production schedule that involves the installation of steel reinforcement, pouring concrete, and so forth. Here, the steel segment had gathered at staging areas on the ground before being appointed to the area to improve in the sky as construction in progress.

The fifth process
On the second day of a three-day construction cycle, the form which creates an interior structure in a particular floor is set into position while door openings and the support steel beams installed as well. Concrete will be poured the next day in the form - and then, on to the next floor.

Weight is lifted
Even before a particular floor finish, construction engineer position on the form and building materials next to the 2300 ton-capacity hydraulic jacks.

In most of the finished floor in Burj Dubai, the three giant tower cranes have been installed to raise a large amount of building materials quickly where they are needed.

Getting the Right
Four Workers placing concrete, or distributors, has been established at the construction site of Burj Tower so that concrete can be mixed and cast transported quickly and efficiently.

Three high-pressure pump is in the hands of the Burj Tower location for transporting concrete to the construction crew working at an unprecedented height. The challenge is to send a high-strength concrete to a height of 570m without any loss of durability or consistency basis.

Another hard worker hoist titanic, an odd lifting heavy materials and construction workers. A total of 14 high-speed hoist while constantly traveling up and down the tower.

Feelings will sink
A building of this size (remember, this structure weighs 500,000 tons) has a tendency to sink, if a little. So each floor is built on average 4mm higher than the designated floor height.

The process of the twelfth
To ensure the Burj Dubai is the tallest on the planet, the tower is topped with a spiral structure that extends from the 700 meter mark. To get it there, the block to actually gather the basic spiral inside the building. Then, the pipe spire lifted by hydraulic jacks with the aid of steel cables.

Sheltered From the Storm
Burj Dubai is designed with four evacuation shelters every 30 floors in emergencies such as fires or terrorist attacks. Also, in addition to 54 high speed elevators, separate emergency elevator was installed quickly and safely evacuate the occupants are located on higher levels.
