The scope of work consisted of the design and build of 300m tower located at the Khalifa Sports City. The tower houses a 108-bedroom five-star hotel, health clubs, a sports museum, a revolving restaurant and a viewing deck.
The external facade is a combination of architectural stainless steel and glazing panels. A large gas Olympic Flame Torch is accommodated on top, allowing a live flame to be lit on special occasions such as the Asian Games of 2006. The tower’s structure is a combination of reinforced concrete and structural steel, with deep piles and a slip-formed concrete core. The scope also included electro-mechanical works, special systems, sophisticated architectural facade lighting, in addition to fitted furniture and equipment.
