DAMAC Maison

A serviced residential apartment’s tower at Burj Khalifa District in Dubai, UAE.

DAMAC Maison is a serviced residential apartment’s tower (1B + G + 5 Podiums + 1 Health Club + 39 Typical Floors + 3 Mechanical) at Burj Khalifa District in Dubai, UAE.

The Total Built-up Area of the Project is estimated 689,242 Sq. ft. A well treated podium and randomized juxtaposition of different types of glass and multi colored Aluminum composite panels contribute to the facade of the building.

The structural framework and cladding system of the tower had to be carefully designed to withstand the extreme temperatures of the region and to accommodate the wind pressures and seismic loads. The location of the building in the close proximity of Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower, also contributed to the effects of wind pressure and loads. A wind tunnel study was conducted to facilitate a safe design of the tower.

The construction of the building is on a very fast pace to achieve the target of casting a floor slab every 10 to 12 days and subsequently to reduce the period to 5 to 7 days.
