  • 2. Introduction This is the tallest man made building ever build with 828 m of height. The construction began on September 2004 and accomplished on October 2009. This world’s tallest structure was under construction for 6 years. 2
  • 3. Scope “The project scope is the definition of what the project is supposed to accomplish and the budget of both time and money that has been created to achieve these objectives.” The initial planned costs of the Burj Khalifa project was $876 million dollars The initial planned height was 728 meters from the ground 3
  • 4. SCOPE CONTINUED.. Burj Khalifa (Burj Dubai) is the tallest man-made structure ever built. The mixed use development will include residential units, offices, hotels and residential apartments. Burj Khalifa was planned by the Dubai government with the aim of becoming a hub for finance, trade and tourism in Middle East 4
  • 5. Project Management “Iron Triangle”, a criterion which measures the project based on three perspectives: COST TIME QUALITY 5
  • 6. COST MANAGEMENT The initial planned costs of the project was $876 million dollars. The final cost, however, was approximately $1.5 billion dollar The final construction was 100 meters higher than the original design Changes in interior design planning were another reason for the increase in costs 6
  • 7. TIME MANAGEMENT Originally, the duration of project was set for forty-seven months, starting from February 2005 to December 2008 The Burj Khalifa project was completed nine months later, on September 2009. Economical decline halted construction for four months in 2008. 7
  • 8. FACTORS AFFECTING COST AND TIME Emaar was also affected by the downturn in the real estate market in Dubai. In late 2008, the price of property at Burj Dubai slumped by about 50%-60%, while prices in the surrounding Downtown Burj Dubai fell by at least 22% First of all, a rise in prices of raw materials had gone up significantly due to the downturn of the global economy in 2008. According to report of Global Informing (2008), the price of iron had increased by 75% within a year. Other materials such as aluminum and cement also increased Increase of price of commodities caused a factor to increase construction cost. 8

  • 10. Bad Employee Management In 2006, the project, which had till then been progressing slightly ahead of schedule, fell behind schedule. Workers from countries like India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, were used to construct the towers and they complained that they were being paid very low wages. 10
  • 11. RISK MANAGEMENT The engineers of the tower worked the design of the structure to avoid the two major challenges; wind and gravity. The highest-risk part of the Burj Khalifa is its high speed elevators To ensure safety, the Burj Khalifa features a home automation system which consists of LCD panels that display detailed emergency information to specified groups of building occupants. 11
  • 12. SOFTWARES USED Samsung engineering and Besix, introduced new technologies based on previous experiences with tall building construction. Following technologies were used for building Burj Khalifa : The ETABS software developed by Computers & Structures Inc., of USA was used for the analysis and design. Prolog Manager is a Windowsbased construction project management application 12
  • 13. SUCCESS/FALIURE From the point of quality : The project is successful The net profit increased 10 times compared to 2009 13
