A couple of years ago we reached new heights with Burj Khalifa (or Burj Dubai, as this tower was known at the time). Here are some interesting facts about this tower:
- The Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world, with a total vision of 828 meters. The height to which people regularly climb and at which they live is 584.5 meters.
- The Caliph contains 163 floors above the ground and only one underground.
- In Burj Khalifa, there are a total of 58 elevators moving at a speed of 10 m / s.
- If you are in the mood to fill all the rooms and parking spaces in this tower, you will need 2957 cars, and enough people to fill 304 hotels and 900 suites.
- This tower was called the Burj Dubai before the consecration and was renamed the Burj Khalifa. Burj means tower.
- The Burj Khalifa is 2 times bigger than the Empire State Building, and even three times bigger than the Eiffel Tower.
- The concrete used for construction weighs as much as 100,000 elephants. As much as it was.
- 22 million working hours, 55,000 tons of reinforcement, and 110,000 tons of concrete were spent on the construction. That’s how many 100,000 elephants.
- Almost 1,000,000 liters of water per day is needed to maintain the tower. And in terms of electricity, the Burj Khalifa consumes as much per day as 360,000 100W bulbs that would be on all day at the same time.
These are just some of the interesting things. For more similar facts about this phenomenon and others, stay with us.
