Burj Dubai Takes On A Shimmering Glass Facade

Burj Dubai, on course to becoming the world's tallest tower, is taking its final shimmering form as installation of curtain wall glass panels commenced on Level 19 of the super-structure developed by Emaar Properties.


Burj Dubai is currently over 125 floors tall and one of the five tallest structures in the world.

'The structure of Burj Dubai is progressing on schedule and, now, with the start of the curtain wall installation, the finishing works will proceed at full speed. With the tower's façade being put in place the elegant shape and form as envisaged in the architectural design will become reality,' said Mr Greg Sang, Assistant Director - Projects, Emaar Properties. 'The contractors have put in place an accelerated programme to fabricate and install the panels, which will enable the on-schedule completion of the tower.'

Al Ghurair Construction Industries, representing the contractor Arabian Aluminium Company, and Hong Kong-based Far East Aluminium Works, their joint venture partner, started the cladding work, which lends an elegant glass façade for the tower.

The first batch of cladding comprises 25 panels specially fabricated using advanced engineering techniques and air-freighted to Dubai. Made of high-performance materials, the curtain wall will enhance the building's distinctive appearance and seal the interior from the external heat, wind, moisture, and noise.
