Burj Khalifa is the world’s first tallest building, a marvel of life, amazing artistic work and unreal engineering achievement. It is a unique instance of international collaboration, a symbolic attribute and an icon of the fresh, vibrant & prosperous Middle East. (Khalifa b. , n.d.)
The time span for completion of whole building was 6 years (Jan. 2004- Jan. 2010) (Khalifa B. , n.d.)
Complexity elements of the project:
(Khalifa B. , n.d.)
Use of construction rebar, as the Down conductor for lighting security
Upright concrete pumping at the stature of 600 m. (network, n.d.)
To place concrete from the ground level to highs above 1600 feet.
(abraham, 2017) wind tunnel sample test to determine the difficulties in construction process against the wind. (abraham, 2017)
The linear project has a series of steps, predictable results, few well-defined phases and a certain length of time whereas complex project has ill- defined areas, end points, multiple interrelations between different stakeholders, may move targets.
As the project is totally complex, there are certain uncertainties and ambiguity related to it:
For this, an exterior cover was produced that consists of aluminium reflective glass and patterned panels of steel. (dubai, 2019)
The aim of the project is to build a building that serves as a multi-purpose structure and making it the tallest building in the world. It is to make it a focal point of a vast mixed- use area with thirty thousand homes, 9 hotels, 6 hectors of park as well as lake of Burj Dubai. (network, n.d.). to highlight the building as one of the epitomes of time in the whole world. It focuses on density of growth and to provide direct links for connecting the public transport facilities. To reflect the Islamic & modern world architecture. (centre, n.d.) and to introduce the building industry urban engineering. (Chand, n.d.)
As the project is vast, the stakeholders are in huge amount and the proper considerations of stakeholder is much needed to execute the project in timely and formatted manner & it’s a crucial for project accomplishment.
A strategic perspective of human & official scenarios is developed in a stakeholder’s assessment method & the connections and problems between the various stakeholders. (management P., 2018)
Stakeholders awareness who can influence the scheme (management P. , 2018)
Possible project disruptive problems (management P. , 2018)
Main individuals for distribution of data during implementation (management P. , 2018)
Managing opposing stakeholders & reducing potential adverse effects (management p. , 2018)
Strategy for communication scheduling and stakeholder administration during preparation stage. (management p. , 2018)

Construction of Foundation Brookfield multiplex (Chand, n.d.)
Outline of stakeholders:
the project was supposed to be completed by 2009 but it got delayed about a year and finished in 2010. Also, if we look after the time and cost, project is measured a failure, but as far as quality is concerned, it is a successful project. There was an surge in overall height of the project by 100 m after the construction is started which led to unusually high cash losses. (Chand, n.d.)
the primary contractor Samsung engineering implemented new technology to meet the extensive usage of resources. As the building is 828 m high, the engineers had difficulty laying the concrete, so alternative way is founded to lay it at nightly. There was an unexpected economic tremor in Dubai, 2008 & due to this materials cost increased drastically. As a result, the contractors “Samsung engineering, Besix and arabtec” couldn’t able to pay the workers as per standard scale and it led to a workers strike in 2007-2008, that ultimately affected the cost of the project. The structural engineers spend a whopping amount in checking of wind tunnel testing as it was the most important one and frequent meeting were held for this between structural engineers and the client & contractor. Rolf Jensen & associates noted the architecture that there is less chance of evacuation above 63rd floor, but the plan remained same and the evacuation safety is implemented but it’s not that simplified form as it has to be . (Chand, n.d.)
