There was any wind? How this part of the crane stayed in one position without smashing the windows?

The exterior cladding of the Burj Dubai, the world’s tallest building, is now complete, its developer revealed on Thursday.

The building, currently measuring over 800 metres, has accomplished a new world record for the highest installation of an aluminium and glass façade, Emaar Properties said in a statement.

A total of 24,348 pieces of cladding were fitted to the tower, located in Downtown Dubai, with the first piece fixed in May 2007.


The total weight of the aluminium cladding is equivalent to that of five A380 airplanes, while the glass used will cover 14 standard football pitches, the firm said.

“Burj Dubai’s construction and engineering techniques are unprecedented, and they are our contribution to the science of high-rise development,” said Mohamed Alabbar, Emaar Properties chairman.

“The cladding work has involved considerable innovation – vast amounts of research and simulation have pioneered advanced materials and installation techniques.”

Keeping the tower façade clean will be the next engineering challenge. To do this 18 window-washing units have been built into the tower each with an extendable arm for cleaning that reaches more than 20 metres, the firm said.

Burj facts

The total weight of aluminum cladding is equivalent to the weight of five A380 Airbus aircraft.

More than 11 tonnes of nuts and bolts have gone into the cladding, equivalent to the weight of six BMW cars.

More than 48,180 gallons of silicone have been used in cladding.

The total glass used can cover 14 standard football pitches.

The total length of stainless steel used is equivalent to the area of 34 NBA basketball courts.

The total length of the gaskets if laid end-to-end is equivalent to the distance from Dubai to Damascus.

A total of 2,074 truck deliveries were undertaken to take the panels from the factory to the Burj Dubai site – the distance is equal going round the earth once, or trekking the Great Wall of China six times.

Next step is to complete the interior of Burj Dubai; few floor seems allready complete in low floors, but what about the upper floors?

Sorry for being off topic, but this is hilarious. Maybe they should do background checks on those guys.
