Special - Hotel da sogno
Burj Al Arab
wing in the desert
Dubai - U.A.E.
a Dream Hotel
The Burj Al Arab hotel is located on a man-made island 300 metres offshore from the new Jumeirah Beach Resort Hotel. It dominates the dubai skyline and surpasses all existing construction in the Middle East. It is spectacular, both in its architectural statement and engineering achievements. The building is a 7-star hotel, 321-metre high, with 202 luxury suite.
Is one of the world ’s most spectacular and luxurious hotels. The construction of this marvel commenced in 1994. Piling goes 40 meters deep into the seabed. At 321 meters high, Burj Al Arab is taller than the Eiffel Tower and 60 meters shorter than the Empire State Building.
Burj Al Arab is the world's tallest hotel building. With its helipad on the 28th floor and a restaurant seemingly suspended in mid air, this hotel has already become a landmark and icon on the Dubai skyline. This unique sail-shaped building stands proudly on a man-made island some 280 meters offshore, linked to the mainland by a slender, gently curving causeway.
PROJECT CONCEPT was initiated by His Highness Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai. He was searching for a firm which could translate his dream of a landmark structure into reality. Nothing he had yet seen captured the historical perspective of Dubai as an Arab trade centre and linked it to the tourism center His Highness foresees Dubai becoming.
Structural steel for Chicago Beach Tower Hotel is unique among existing high-rise projects. The architecturally-extraordinary exoskeleton design soars 273 metres into the air to provide lateral stability to the structure.
The diagonals are 85 metres long, weigh 165 tons and were fabricated into a single unit. Each of the six units was individually transported 15 kilometres to the site on two multi-wheeled special-built trailers with articulating axles. Both trailers loaded with the diagonals were pulled by a 550-horsepower special-built tractor. Erection of the diagonals required specially-designed catheads and strand jacks.
The high-tech Teflon-coated fibreglass woven fabric meets the same wind-loading requirements as the curtainwall, due to its double curvature and load carrying capacity. Structurally, the fabric is designed to a safety factor of 6:1 and is designed to withstand winds of 450km/h.
