Guinness World Records has officially announced that it has recorded the "largest continuous concrete pour in the world" in Dubai.
A concrete volume of 21,580 cubic metres was recorded for a residential commercial building in Jebel Ali, state news agency WAM reported.
It said Dubai has retained its own record which it broke last year in Al Barsha South when 19,793 cubic metres was poured in 42 hours.
Observers from Guinness World Records attended the 35 hour and 19 minute concrete pouring process in Jebel Ali, which started at 7.21pm on May 18 and ended at 8.46am on May 20 on an area of 20,612 square feet of land.
The average rate of concrete pouring in an hour was recorded at 611 cubic metres, breaking the previous record related to the time taken. During the process, 18 concrete pumps were used, and the ready mix concrete trucks made 2,618 trips for the purpose.
The concreting work was carried out with the presence of 500 workers per shift, and 2,700 tons of reinforcing steel bars were used for the work, WAM said.
