Finally! Bauer Group, company which built Burj Khalifa's foundations started moving into the site in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. German construction company was chosen in October to build foundations for the new world's tallest building, over 1km tall Kingdom Tower.


After pile testing in January and some redesigning on the tower's podium, actual construction is set to start this month and should be completed within 10 months when Kingdom Tower will shoot into the sky. Apparently tower is also fully funded and there shouldn't be any problems and delays during construction process regarding financing.

Stay with us, we will follow closely every move on the construction site.

Update: Preparation work done, foundation construction start.
