This world-class development, located in Dubai, UAE, represented the third largest pair of towers in the world, with a 52-storey hotel tower and adjacent 53-storey office tower. Both towers rise from an oasis of shopping mall and lush lawns and gardens. At time of completion, the office tower was the tallest in the Middle East and Europe and the 10th tallest building in the world.
The total facility contains 41 elevators and 12 escalators, with the high-rise office elevators having a rated speed of 7 metres per second. Elevators employ artificial intelligence algorithms and VV/VF inverter drives as key features to achieve performance standards.
HH Angus provided a full scope of services, starting with Schematic Design and through to final acceptance inspections of the elevator and escalator units.
