DMCC Uptown Tower completes façade works – Construction Week Online

The world’s flagship Free Zone and Government of Dubai Authority on commodities trade and enterprise – has announced that the façade of Uptown Tower has been fully installed, marking a major construction milestone for Dubai’s latest megaproject. Uptown Tower is set for handover in Q4 2022.

A total of 8,542 glass panels were installed on the 340-metre-tall tower, which is the first of two supertall towers at DMCC’s Uptown Dubai District.

Having started installation in August 2020, progress on the façade proceeded at pace following the completion of structural elements earlier this year. At peak installation, the team installed an entire floor of the building every two days, equating to 70 panels per day.
