This has led Dubai clerics to rule that those living above the 80th floor should wait 2 additional minutes to break their Ramadan fast, and those living above the th floor, 3 minutes. The primary structure is reinforced concrete. Three tower cranes were used during construction of the uppermost levels, each capable of lifting a tonne load.

This has led Dubai clerics to rule that those living above the 80th floor should wait 2 additional minutes to break their Ramadan fast, and those living above the th floor, 3 minutes.
The primary structure is reinforced concrete.
Three tower cranes were used during construction of the uppermost levels, each capable of lifting a tonne load. In33 test holes were drilled to study the strength of the bedrock underlying the structure. Samples were taken from test holes drilled to a depth of metres, finding weak to very weak rock all the way.
This weight was then divided by the compressive strength of concrete of which is 30 MPa which yielded a sq. Pressurized, air-conditioned refuge floors are located every 13 floors in floors G, 13, 26, 39, 52 etc.
CTLGroupworking for Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, conducted the creep and shrinkage testing critical for the structural analysis of the building. To combat this problem, the concrete was not poured during the day.
Instead, during the summer months, ice was added to the mixture and it was poured at night when the air was cooler and the humidity was higher. Cooler concrete cures more evenly and is therefore less likely to set too quickly and crack. Any significant cracks could have put the entire project in jeopardy.
