Move over Burj Khalifa, world’s tallest building is coming up around the corner

The deep foundation testing for Dubai Creek Tower, which is set to eclipse the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest structure, was successfully completed last month as experts cleared the skyscraper’s complex design.

Fugro, a Dutch multinational company that provides geo-technical and survey services, completed the testing for the 928-metre (3,045-foot) structure being built by Emaar Properties in the Dubai Creek Harbour complex.

It is designed to be almost 100 metres (322 feet) taller than the 828-metre (2,717-foot) Burj Khalifa, which has been the world’s tallest building since it was completed in 2010.

Emaar Properties released photos last year showing parts of the new tower’s 236-foot-deep foundation that will be topped with 1.59 million cubic feet of concrete. Reports have suggested that the structure will be completed in time for the Dubai Expo 2020.
