Wicksteed Aims High for World’s Tallest Building!

August 14, 2017

Leading outdoor play and fitness experts, Wicksteed Playgrounds, has just won an exciting, international project to create a bespoke themed play area for the Burj Khalifa in Dubai – the world’s tallest building!

Wicksteed will be working with one of the most prestigious developers in Dubai, Emaar, to create the bespoke play scheme which takes inspiration from the beautiful, artificial archipelagos that adorn the Dubai coastline and the ‘Y’ shape which is synonymous with Burj Khalifa.  References to the tallest building in the world have been incorporated into the design throughout, including a bespoke climbing wall, which the client really liked as it makes a strong connection to the unique building.  The play area will be located above the car park and, to ensure correct load bearings, Wicksteed will use slightly different materials from its usual installation method in the construction of the play mound.

We are delighted to work with one of Dubai’s most prestigious developers on this project which will be completed over the next few months.  As one of the experts in our field, international recognition for our creative and bespoke play areas has taken us to many countries and different environments around the world.  We hope our project at the Burj Khalifa will allow us to continue to work with developer Emaar on other play projects in the region,” says Stuart Wetherell, Sales Director at Wicksteed.

The Burj Khalifa, known as the Burj Dubai before its inauguration, is a mega-tall skyscraper in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.  It has a roof height of 828m and with antenna included is 829.8m, making it the tallest building and the tallest structure in the world.  The Y-shaped tripartite floor geometry is designed to optimise residential and hotel space.
