At 823 meters, the much-heralded Burj Khalifa is by far the tallest building in the world.
NORR was responsible for the construction administration related to the architectural and design coordination aspects of the project during construction. For this landmark project, we supervised the execution of the Burj Khalifa tower in compliance with SOM’s design intent and contract documents previously approved by Emaar.
Our responsibilities included the coordination of architecture with engineering design by other consultants and contractors, quality control, reviewing mockups, samples, shop drawings and manufacturers’ data. During construction, we advised Emaar and others on issues related to construction methods required to solve complex problems on site.
