  1. Introduction

The Burj Khalifa is expected to become the tallest skyscraper in the world. It is to be constructed in Dubai and have162 floors, 3 basement levels and to rise 828 meters into the skyline of Dubai (Abdelrazaq, 2010). The construction project is expected to run for five years and some months. The Burj Khalifa is anticipated to encompass residential, commercial, hotel, office, shopping, leisure, entertainment and parking amenities. The project will involve top companies and professionals in structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and project management aspects of construction. It is important to identify sources of risk and other factors that could possibly impede or impair the completion of the project. The contractors of the project ought to have in place systems that can detect and be able to help avoid and mitigate these risks. A fault tree will assist in outlining the risks that are associated with the catastrophic failure of the project either during construction or upon completion. Construction of the Burj Khalifa is expected to strengthen the status of Dubai as a key tourist and business hub. In addition, it will offer a luxurious high value environment with multiple uses.
