These slides got forwarded in an email by a good friend Ethelyne Molnar of Brown Construction. They were not created by Ethelyne or myself so no comments about anything that may be incorrect or mis-spelled. :)

I love construction and seeing the magnitude of these projects is amazing.

Dubai Engineering & Construction

  1. 1. Dubai "Another World"
  2. 2. ¿Remember this? Yes, yes it is the little hotel in Dubai.
  3. 3. This is the Burj Al Arab, the only 7 stars hotel in the world, it was built in only 18 months... And opened its doors in 2003.....
  4. 4. This hotel is in Dubai, in the Arab Emirates. Yes, a lot of oil and a lot of money....
  5. 5. Just to go in and “see it” costs 60 € . Can you imagine what it would cost to spend the night?…..

  15. 15. ... or play a tennis match with Nadal...
  16. 16. Crazy isn’t it? And who will worry if you lost a ball?…. For the price of one hour of court you can buy hundreds of balls...
  17. 17. And take a look at the “Indoor Winter Season” You can ski down the slope while everyone else is outside in an 85º F... Yes it is also inDubai
  18. 19. It was like this a couple of years ago...
  19. 20. And now... finished, How do you like it?, colosal, isn’t it?... (look at the size of the palm trees...)
  20. 21. My friends... We are seeing the city with the biggest growing rate in the world... Would you like to see some of the inmediate future projects?... Take a tissue to clean your drooling....
  21. 22. 15% of the large towers being built in the world are in Dubai... Can you imagine the problem in operating these cranes
  22. 23. This is a “virtual model” of the Burj Tower In 2008, it will be the tallest is the world.
  23. 25. This is the beginning....

  37. 40. Finally, take a look at this rotating skyscraper....
  38. 41. This tower has a height of 250 meters and 59 floors mounted in a concrete core which will serve as a rotating shaft. The floors will be pre-assembled and then attached to the core of the building. Each floor will rotate separate from the others. The velocity will be slow and not noticed by the residents.
  39. 42. The tower will have solar and aeolian electric system generators to be self-sufficient. The project is Italian and has not begun yet. It is predicted that its construction, will last two and a half years. The projected cost will be around 500 million dollars.
  40. 43. The END That's all folks...
