In October 2012, the German company Bauer received a contract to build the foundation for a skyscraper depth of 110 meters.

Bauer to provide foundation work for Kingdom Tower

German company Bauer was awarded the foundation work for the Kingdom Tower. Bauer will start working on the contract which is valued at 25,000,000 euro in December and work is estimated to last 10 months.

Bauer will build 270 bored piles of 1.5 – 1.8 meter in diameter and the depth of the foundation will be 110 meters. Two BG28 and two BG40 piling rigs will be employed during the work. You can further read about it on Bauer’s official site.

On the official press release from Bauer it is mentioned that the tower will have 1,001 meters. However, we speculate that the height provided in the article might not be the final one.

From the official website:

"The Scope:
The project calls for construction of a Mile Tower which is a skyscraper in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The height of the skyscraper is around 1600 metres. The Mile Tower is a mixed use tower includes apartments, hotels, commercial shops and malls. The skyscraper will be the tallest skyscraper in the world."

Why it says the building will be 1600m high and this thread says 1007m? which is true?

Lol from what "official" site did you get that from? It's not even called "Mile Tower" for years now. Back in 2008 or 07 it was originally planned (or more like envisioned) to be a mile high tower but those plans were altered with more detailed designs as early as in 2009 or 2010 if memory serves right. Name was changed to Kingdom Tower and height claimed to be no more mile but "over 1000" which we always knew was simply another way of calling massive height reduction.

1007m is the correct figure. Also, check these out.





EDIT: This is, by far, the coolest article on this building: http://www.worldofarchi.com/2012/07/...rints-and.html

Imagine stepping out onto that platform, 750 meters or so above ground with nothing below you but air!
