At over 828 metres, Burj Khalifa is a building that sets a lot of world records – the world’s tallest building, fastest elevators, highest swimming pool and observation deck.
But behind the glimmering façade, is a state-of-the-art lighting control system that ensures the building also sets new standards in lighting ambience and functionality.
Opened in January 2010, the 160 floor mixed-use tower in Dubai features residences, corporate suites and the world’s first Armani Hotel and residences.
Not surprisingly for a building of this height, it employed the latest advances in wind engineering, structural engineering, construction materials and technology.
The Philips Dynalite lighting control system is an example of the innovative technology used to meet the practical and logistical demands of a project of this magnitude.
