One Za’abeel is a flagship, mixed-used development by Ithra Dubai/ICD. With two towers standing at 304m and 241m, the development has the added complication of straddling a live six lane carriageway.
Above ground the two towers will be linked at 125m in the air by “The Link” – a 210m long structure of steel and glass with the world’s longest cantilever.
The construction team pushed engineering limits by building the structure on a temporary site-based platform in seven sections that will be welded together before being secured to the towers.
Weighing 1,742 tons and 51m in length, the first of seven steel modules is the heaviest individual node to be erected. The primary nodes for each of the bridge’s assemblies – the heaviest of which weighed more than 45 tons – were constructed off site and delivered fully fabricated to reduce on-site welding.
