that's right

It is similar to Jawhrat Al Mamlakah largely

Besix: we expect Binladin to win Kingdom Tower

Besix: we expect Binladin to win Kingdom Tower


The Belgian contractor in the running for the world’s tallest tower contract has said it expects its Saudi-based competitor to win the deal.


Dubai-based firm Besix in partnership with El Seif Engineering & Contracting, is up against the Saudi Binladin Group for the 1-km high ‘Kingdom Tower’ in Jeddah, and is hoping to hear back from the decision-makers soon.

The contractors, which are both renowned for their flagship projects, were actually meant to find out which firm had been awarded the contract in September, but as yet as still waiting.

Speaking about the firm’s geographical expansion plans, Philippe Dessoy, general manager of subsidiary firm Six Construct, told Construction Week: “For more than a year we have been looking at Saudi Arabia.

"We put a tender together for the Kingdom Tower, and we’re on the shortlist with Binladin, but I expect the job to go to Binladin.”

That said, the GM of the Burj Khalifa builder, and firm responsible for Abu Dhabi’s recently-completed Sheikh Zayed Bridge, did add that he hoped to win a contract in Saudi by the middle of next year.

“We hope to win a project in Saudi as soon as possible, but we don’t expect anything for another few months. We hope to have a project before summer next year.”

With more than 200 floors, Kingdom Tower will stand higher than the Burj Khalifa, which is currently the world's tallest man-made structure at 828m.

Last year, developer Emaar, also responsible for the Burj Khalifa, was selected by Kingdom Holdings Company (KHC) to supervise construction of the tower and surrounding city development, estimated to cost a massive US$40 billion to build.

In September, the two contractors competing for the project had to revise their prices due to changes to the design.

قال إنها ستنسي الناس ما شاهدوه في "برج خليفة"
تقرير اقتصادي: مصاعد برج الوليد في جدة ستخطف الأنفاس



Quote:
قالت شركة "بي آر نيوزواير" اليوم إن مصاعد برج الأمير الوليد بن طلال الذي ينوي إنشاءه في مدينة جدة ستحوي تقنية حديثة غير مسبوقة، مشيراً إلى أن "برج خليفة" في دبي يحوي اليوم أسرع مصاعد في العالم وأكثرها إثارة للدهشة، غير أن مصاعد "برج المملكة" ستكون مدهشة أكثر "وتخطف الأنفاس".

ورصدت "بي آر نيوزوير"، وهي شركة مزودة لخدمات التوزيع الإلكتروني للأخبار الاقتصادية، بعض المواصفات التي تتميز بها مصاعد برج خليفة، ومنها أنها تقطع أطول مسافة للمصاعد في العالم، وتسير بسرعة 18 متراً في الثانية (40 ميلاً في الساعة)، إضافة إلى نظام إخلاء متطور وتقنية تحكم عالية، غير أنه أكد أن المصاعد التي ستوضع في برج الوليد بجدة (برج المملكة) ستنسي الناس ما شاهدوه في برج خليفة.

وذكر التقرير أن طول "برج المملكة" سيصل لنحو ميل، ما يعني أنه سيكون الأطول في العالم، وستبدو معه بقية ناطحات السحاب في العالم وكأنها "أقزام".

يذكر أن أعمال البناء لمشروعي "مدينة المملكة- جدة" ومشروع "برج المملكة"، قد بدأت في أكتوبر 2008، ويبلغ إجمالي الاستثمار في المشروعين أكثر من 100 مليار ريال.

ومشروع مدينة المملكة، يقع في منطقه خليج أبحر بشمال جدة، على مساحة مقدارها 7.1 مليون متر مربع تقريباً.

وستبلغ مساحة البناء 23 مليون متر مربع موزَّعة على برج المملكة والفلل والشقق السكنية والمساكن المتنوعة والفنادق والمكاتب والمجمعات التعليمية والتجارية والإنشاءات الشاطئية، وما يلزم من البنى التحتية المتكاملة.

How do you Transport 5,500 kgs up 2,717 ft at 18 Meters per Second?
Published: Tuesday, 25 Jan 2011 | 5:20 AM ET Text Size
DUBAI, UAE, January 25, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- This is a question for the elevator engineers at the Burj Khalifa, Dubai, UAE. Here are a few interesting facts they have told us about the elevators in the world's tallest building: - The Burj Khalifa's elevators have the world's longest travel distance from lowest to highest stop - It is the first mega-rise to have elevators with specially programmed, permit-controlled evacuation procedures - At 5,500 kg capacity, the firemen/service elevator is the world's tallest service elevator - 54 lifts have been installed in the tower - The double deck cabin elevators are the fastest in the world - The speed of the cabin is 18 m/sec (40 mph) If you think these facts are impressive, hold your breath for the development of the Mile-High Tower, a skyscraper proposed for construction in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. At one mile tall, it will be the tallest building ever built to date.

Significant investment in the built environment has propelled the Kingdom to regional pole position in terms of project spend. Investment in sustainable smart buildings is predicted to hit US$39bn over eight years, while long-term government strategic development plans demand adherence to sustainable building construction and performance codes. The core and its vertical transportation system are a tall building's fundamental element, and the most costly to change after construction.

With this in mind the need for a dedicated vertical transportation conference in Saudi Arabia has never been greater.

Dr. Andy Davids, Director at Hyder Consulting Middle East, will review the elevator market's progression to date in the Middle East and discuss the journey still to come at IQPC's Vertical Transportation Saudi Arabia event, taking place from the 28 February - 1 March 2011 at the J W Marriot in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Dr. Davids will discuss the challenges in the design and construction of the elevator systems in several of the world's tallest buildings, including, Emirates Towers and the Burj Khalifa. He will also review innovative vertical transportation technologies adopted for the super-tall CMA Tower, King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD), and explain the vertical transportation requirements for next generation super-tall buildings planned for the Middle East and China.

At IQPC's Vertical Transportation Middle East Summit, taking place on 28 February - 01 March 2011 at J W Marriot, Riyadh, KSA is where experts will discuss the latest vertical transportation technologies, methodologies, engineering solutions and working practices to maximise ROI and effectively deliver sustainable projects within budget. The summit will provide an exclusive opportunity to network and cement business partnerships with master planners, developers and contractors.
