Friends, this work given to Samsung C&T Corporation was so big that it was completed in collaboration with Belgium's Besix and UAE's Arabtech company. A funny thing is that when the base of Burj Khalifa was being built in 2004, people did not even know how its complete design would be. Because even after the construction work started, work was being done on its design. Within three years of the start of the work, it also started the process of making records.

In 2007, it broke Sears Tower's record for building with most floors. Sears Tower located in America has a total of 110 floors, and at the same time its height was 570m. In 2007, Burj Khalifa also made four other records like –

Then on April 7, 2007, with a height of 629m, Burj Khalifa became the Tallest Man Made Structure. And then after being 636m, Emaar announced that its height will be kept secret till its completion.

Help had to be sought from the President:

At first, the height of Burj Khalifa was kept only a few meters higher than the height of Taipei 101. But its base was so powerful that its height was raised to about 300 meters.

And as the height increased, its price also increased significantly, due to which assistance was taken from the President of Abu Dhabi, Khalifa bin Zayed in making this project and with his financial help, this work was carried forward.

Earlier this building was named Burj Tower but after the President's help when it was opened, this building was named Burj Khalifa in his honor. After completing the construction work in October 2009, it was inaugurated on January 4, 2010 and on this occasion people saw the charisma of Dubai for the first time.

About 1.5 billion dollars were spent to build this building and some people believe that this figure can be even more. On March 10, 2010, Burj Khalifa was officially declared to be the tallest building in the world. And since then till now this record is in the name of this building.

In 2012, 80% of its share was taken by the people for use. So friends, this was the story of the world's tallest building Burj Khalifa in Hindi. Hope you liked this interesting information.
