Burj Khalifa

The world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa rises a half mile into the desert sky. In its design, this miracle of modern engineering also honors ancient Islamic architecture like the Great Mosque of Samarra. To take people to the top, Otis created what are among the world’s fastest double-deck elevators.

Trusted partner

Emaar Properties wanted to honor the city of Dubai with a building that combined art, engineering and meticulous craftsmanship on an unprecedented scale. We’re proud they trusted Otis to help achieve that vision.


In designing the tower’s vertical transportation system, Otis engineered the world’s fastest double-deck elevators. They reach the observation decks on floors 124 and 125 in just 60 seconds, traveling at 10 meters per second.


Otis technicians are on-site around the clock to keep the tower’s elevators and escalators operating at peak efficiency. Our EMS Panorama® technology continuously monitors every aspect of the system’s performance, feeding information to displays in the control room.

"Our experts have created a state-of-the-art, superfast system for Burj Khalifa. How else would you get to the world’s highest fine dining room?"
