Mixed-Use Developments

Burj Khalifa Tower - Dubai

The Burj Khalifa (Burj Dubai Tower) development is a city within a city combining residential, commercial, hospitality (Armani Hotel), entertainment, shopping and leisure outlets with open green spaces, water features, pedestrian boulevards, and one of the world’s largest shopping malls.

ARP provided specialist acoustics, audiovisual, ICT and ELV consultancy services, including the design and site supervision for the entire building and supporting adjacent components.

This design includes integration of high speed internet, Smart-home and ELV (Extra Low Voltage) systems over 4.3million meters of fiber for residential apartments, leasable office space and an Armani brand hotel. Wi-Fi, Tetra radio and GSM systems are also deployed alongside the converged network, providing full wired and wireless communication within the building.

Specialty acoustic systems have been designed to meet the stringent aesthetic requirements within the hotel whilst achieving excellent acoustics. This includes the design of back-lit sound absorbent panels. In addition, the world’s largest curtain wall takes into account acoustic separation between spaces as well as wind generated noise control.

Due to the building height, there are a number of unique MEP and vertical transportation noise control solutions that have been designed. Many of the mechanical rooms layered throughout the building required special “tailored” architectural noise isolation constructions.

The background music and digital signage systems provide centralized distribution of sound and video over a state-of-the-art systems designed for the residential, hotel and amenity areas of the building. The high-profile restaurants, spas, business centers, conference facilities, lounges and lobbies are designed to maintain a notably high audio and acoustic quality throughout the building so as to augment the visitor/end-users experiences of the spaces.

ARP has also been retained to study and co-ordinate RF antenna site development issues for the building.
