The Burj Khalifa is known to be the tallest skyscraper ever built by man and one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. At over 828 meters (2716.5 feet) and more than 160 stories, Burj Khalifa is a multi-use development tower that includes a hotel, observation deck, restaurant, fitness and recreation club, and 37 floors of corporate offices. The project to build the Burj Khalifa tower is one of the most successful projects in the Middle East and in the world to date. It was planned by the Dubai government with the purpose of making the city a hub for finance, trade, and tourism. The project spanned for 6 years from 2004 to 2009 and was designed to be the centerpiece of the large scale Burj Khalifa Development that would rise into the sky to an unprecedented height. As listed in burjkhalifa.ae (2018), the completion of the tower has broken numerous world records such as Tallest Building in the World, Highest Number of Stories in the World, Highest Outdoor Observation Deck in the World, and many more. Agreed that that there are many iconic structures around the world, of which Dubai still plays host to most of them, the Burj Khalifa is not only the tallest and one of the most glamorous, with a lot to learn from its project design, process and implementation. The research work is designed to x-ray the entire project, its phases and the factors that led its successful completion.
