Does the hotel stand on rock?
The building is built on sand, which is
unusual as most tall building are founded on
rock. The building is supported on 250 , 1.5M
diameter columns that go 45 meters under
the sea. As there is only sand to hold the
building up the columns rely on friction.
Other amazing facts...
The diagonal trusses on the side of the
building are as long as a football pitch and
weigh as much as 20 double-decker busses.
They were built 15 KM from the site and
brought by road to Dubai on huge 80 wheel
lorries which had to be specially imported
from South Africa. The highest truss took a
day to lift into place.
If one man was to build the building himself it
would take about 8,000 years to finish.
