Burj Al Arab Hotel, Dubai

The Burj Al Arab is a luxury hotel and one of the most iconic buildings in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It is the seventh tallest building in the world, although 39% of its total height is made up of non-occupiable space.

Burj Al Arab stands on an artificial island 280 m from Jumeirah Beach and is connected to the mainland by a private curving bridge. The shape of the structure is designed to resemble the sail of a ship.

Macalloy Architectural Post Tension Bars/Tension Rods were used to secure the vertical steel columns of the Burj Al Arab Hotel. 75mm diameter Macalloy 1030 Post Tensioning Bars were used as anchor bolts.

The building also features a fabric membrane wall, and Macalloy Architectural Tie Bars were used to tension the membrane structure in the building.
