Check out Construction Week's pictures from the building site of Dubai latest skyscraper, Wasl Tower, which will have one of the world's tallest and most complicated ceramic façades upon completion in 2020.
Construction work on the 302m Wasl Tower in Dubai has been under way for several months, and the project is aiming to be finished by October 2020.
Arabtec Construction, a subsidiary of Arabtec Holding, won the $398m (AED1.46bn) main contract for Wasl Tower, which was awarded by Wasl Asset Management, in 2017.
Structural engineering consultancy DeSimone has worked alongside main contractor Arabtec to optimise the design of the 64-floor Wasl Tower.
Numerous contractors have been appointed to provide various services to the skyscraper. Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower) signed a memorandum of understanding with Wasl Asset Management in May to provide district cooling services to the tower.
Wasl Tower is located on the opposite side of the road to the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest building. Together, the two buildings will flank Sheikh Zayed Road, which is the longest highway in the UAE.
While limited above-ground core and shell structure has been built, Wasl Tower will reach hundreds of meters into the air. It's clay and ceramic faade will be among the tallest in the world.
