Over 200 installation crew members worked for 180 days and a total of 144,000 hours to create the installation built in the shape of an Emirates A380, reported state news agency Wam.
Abdel Naser Rahhal, the co-founder and creator of Dubai Miracle Garden, received the certificate from the international committee of the Guinness World Records at a ceremony held to mark the UAE’s 45th National Day.
The installation, which is 24 m high, boasts of over 300 tonnes of steel and 50 tonnes of concrete which was used to construct the structure. It can carry about 90 tonnes of flowers, said the report.
