Al Mas Tower is a landmark project in Jumeirah Lake Towers, a free zone in which several corporate companies related to the commodities market including the Dubai Diamond Exchange, and the Kimberly Process Certification, are now operating. The building was topped out in 2008 and became the tallest building in Dubai until 2009 when it was surpassed by Burj Khalifa.
The main challenge of Al Mas Tower was the curved sloped 3-dimensional shape of the Tower.
Shop drawings and fabrication design models were linked directly to CNC machines in the factory.
At the Crown level, large inclined motorised sliding door shutters were lifted by Tower cranes and installed by the AAB team.
The podium with the large cantilevered diamond-shaped façades was designed as a bespoke semi-unitized system fixed back onto the main steel structure.
Inside the building large glass floors in triple laminated HS, fritted glass, accessible for the public have been designed by Al Abbar’s in-house engineering team.
