by myComply | Mar 7, 2022 | Construction Managers , Construction Statistics , General Contractors , Mega Projects | 0 comments
The world is building state-of-the-art infrastructure at a breakneck speed and a booming construction industry across the globe brings some incredible construction projects into the spotlight. Each year, the world’s largest construction projects are being pitched, built, and completed. So, what are the biggest construction projects of 2022 from around the globe?
We take you through the 10 largest construction projects that are starting, ongoing, or nearing completion in 2022. Megaprojects, architectural wonders, mind-blowing builds; whatever you want to call them, these construction projects continue to set the bar for the next headline-grabbing build. All these projects represent engineering accomplishments and architectural feats that continue to push the envelope.
Here are the top-10 biggest construction projects in 2022:
- Merdeka 118
- Buffalo Bills Stadium
- The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam
- Jansen Potash Project
- Laguardia International Airport
- Samsung Semiconductor Factory
- Intel Arizona Semiconductor Plants
- Plant Vogtle, Units 3 & 4
- California High Speed Rail
NOTE: Click each project name above to jump to that section or scroll/browse the list below.
#10: Merdeka 118
Estimated Cost: $1,700,000,000 (USD $1.7 Billion)
Location: Kuala Lumpur (Mayalsia)
Phase: Finishing Touches
Th architecture is built to resemble first Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman’s stature as he proclaimed the country’s independence. In the picture below, take note of the posture of Prime Minister Rahman and the shape of the current Merdeka skyscraper. It’s quite amazing what happens when inspiring architecture joins forces with state-of-the-art engineering.
#9: Buffalo Bills Stadium (National Football League)
Estimated Cost: $2,100,000,000 (USD $2.1 Billion)
Location: Buffalo, New York (United States)
Phase: Planning & Preparation
It is yet to be decided where the build will take place, but it seems like the two most likely locations are:
- Downtown Buffalo
- Orchard Park
Orchard Park is home to the team’s current stadium, so there’s a bit of history with this location that might feel sentimental to some. The commute is only 20-minutes from the city center, but many fans are calling for a downtown stadium in hopes of creating a better entertainment experience for fans before, during, and after the games.
Above you will see the proposed drawings and renderings of the stadium. The build includes a retail district, restaurants, parking garages, an innovative stadium that will house the Bills, and various hotels. In the coming weeks and months, this build should have more information announced, but all signs point to the construction process starting in 2022. Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz said “Hopefully we have something to announce soon” on March 1, 2022, and many media outlets have reported rumors of an announcement soon.
If the project moves forward, its $2.1B budget will make it one of the biggest construction projects in the world. Stay tuned for more on one of the world’s most exciting sports venues in 2022.
#8: The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam
Estimated Cost: $5,000,000,000 (USD $5 Billion)
Location: Bameza (Ethiopia)
Phase: Finishing Touches
In February of 2022, the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam produced power for the first time – delivering electricity to the power grid at a rate of 375MW. But the Dam is not near full capacity as the reservoir housing the water is in a filling period that could take up to 7 years to fully fill. The reservoir started filling in late 2020 and once filled will produce much more electricity to the surrounding grid.
#7: Jansen Potash Project
Estimated Cost: $6,300,000,000 (USD $6.3 Billion)
Location: Jansen, Saskatchewan (Canada)
Phase: Planning & Preparation
Potash is a vital link in the global supply chain, and if you are not from a region where farming and agriculture is top-of-mind then you might not recognize the significance of this project. Potash increases the water retention in plants, allows crops to yield better results, and can even influence the overall nutritional value of the food we grow in the ground.
Although it will not wow like the Merdeka 118 project, this is the largest investment in Saskatchewan’s history, one of the largest construction projects in the world, and will no doubt improve the global food supply chain.
#6: Laguardia International Airport
Estimated Cost: $8,000,000,000 (USD $8 Billion)
Location: New York, New York (United States)
This is the phrase that coins the latest development at one of the world’s largest international airports, Laguardia. Closing out at $8B in total cost, this massive overhaul has been one of the biggest construction projects in the world for several years. The goal of the campaign is really to forget the notions and conceptions that people have of the Laguardia airport, which (historically) has a bad reputation.
“The old airport, which was probably one of the most hated airports in the country will quickly transform into one of the best” – Rick Cotton, Executive Director of the Port Authority for NY/NJ
A whole new Laguardia airport means $8 Billion dollars invested into a modern, airy, and vibrant travel experience when landing in New York’s second-largest airport. Arrive in style with world-class amenities, iconic art, enhanced security, and quick access to additional taxiways to reduce the likelihood of flight delays. The project boasts 30% MWBE (minority/women-owned business enterprise) participation, which means it employs many minority staff both during the construction phase and as the airport operates.
#5: Samsung Semiconductor Factory
Estimated Cost: $17,000,000,000 (USD $17 Billion)
Location: Austin, Texas (United States)
The Samsung Semiconductor Factory is set to start construction in late 2022 and is currently in the planning phase. The goal with this factory and other “Made in the USA” production facilities is to enable the United States to join the global supply efforts manufacturing semiconductors. 70% of the global manufacturing for semiconductors is currently being done in Taiwan and South Korea, yet the entire world relies on the technology. With American semiconducting manufacturing, North American based companies can rely on faster lead times and fewer disruptions in the supply chain.
#4: Intel Semiconductor Project – Two Factories
Estimated Cost: $20,000,000,000 (USD $20 Billion)
Location: Chandler, Arizona (United States)
Phase: Active Construction
The United States has broken ground and can expect two new semiconductor facilities close to Intel’s Chandler, Arizona campus. The facility will take 2 years to build and will require around-the-clock work to ensure the deadlines proposed are met. Set to open in 2024, these facilities will bring 3,000 construction jobs, 3,000 intel employees, and create an additional 15,000 indirect jobs in the local communities surrounding Chandler.
#3: Plant Vogtle – Units 3 & 4
Estimated Cost: $30,000,000,000 (USD $30 Billion)
Location: Waynesboro, Georgia (United States)
With more than 7,000 workers on site, and more than 800 permanent jobs available once the units begin operating, Vogtle 3 & 4 is currently the largest construction project (jobs-producing) in the state of Georgia. The project has also been a major economic development driver for the region during construction.
Why is nuclear power important and why now? Well, with a growing population and an increase in technological development and usage, the world is consuming power at unprecedented rates. Nuclear power offers a zero-emission energy source, does not take a ton of space to build, and produces minimal waste, which aligns with many countries’ shift to cleaner energy alternatives. Onlookers should anticipate that Plant Vogtle will not be the only nuclear power-related build on the horizon.
Estimated Cost: $76, 000,000,000 (USD $76 Billion)
Location: Dubai (United Arab Emirates)
- 51 Disneylands = 1 Disneyworld (43 square miles of land)
- 3 Disneyworlds = 1 Dubailand (129 square miles of land)
Dubailand is considered a “theme park,” but really is the development of an entire entertainment city, like the experience offered at Disneyworld in Orlando, Florida but at a much greater scale. Dubai is notorious for “one-upping” western countries with innovative builds and construction. If the most exciting architecture and buildings are not already in Dubai, you can be sure it is on the radar.
Plans for Dubailand consist of hotels, theme parks (Universal Studios Dubailand, Six Flags Dubailand, etc.), restaurants, zoos, gardens, and about anything you could think of that would attract tourists from across the globe.
Dubailand has been in construction since 2003 and has a turbulent history of fundraising and construction efforts. This has resulted in a snail-like pace building the alternative-like universe. In 2013 $55 Billion in capital was raised to continue construction, but onlookers feel uncertain that the original plans will pan out.
The good news, in the past 2-3 years the land carved out for Dubailand has launched major attractions like “Legoland Dubai” and the famous Dubai butterfly garden. Rumors have it that construction will continue in 2022 as the oil-rich country continues to thrive with oil prices hitting record highs.
With this most recent cash injection and the total projected budget for Dubailand, it is certainly one of the largest construction projects the world has ever seen. So… what could be bigger?
#1: California High Speed Rail
Estimated Cost: $98,000,000,000 (USD $98 Billion)
Location: California (United States)
The California HSR is still in motion, and construction continues to move forward. However, the original blueprints for the rail are not going to come to life any time soon. Much of the project has been halted, and a project that was once projected to cost $33 Billion dollars is now prediction to cost just over $98 Billion. In addition, construction is expected to take 13 years longer than pitched in 2008 – now targeted for completion in 2033.
It is safe to say that the 2033 deadline will not be met if portions of the rail continue to be stopped. For now, construction on the rail will continue between Merced and Bakersfield, California.
Here’s where things are at nearing the end of 2021 and plans are full steam ahead for 2022 – video below shows progress.
Upon completion, this project will undoubtedly be one of the biggest construction projects ever completed and unlike any other transportation system in the world . But Californians beg to question “ at what cost?” as the goalposts on the project budget continue to move further billions of dollars at a time.

The 22 Most Anticipated Projects of 2022
- Written by Eric Baldwin
- Published on January 17, 2022
As the new year kicks off, we're taking a look ahead to the projects we're most looking forward to in 2022. With a mix of cultural and commercial programs, the designs are located across five continents, with many under construction for multiple years. Designed across a wide range of scales, they represent a mix of interconnected landscapes, museums, and new skyscrapers.
A number of projects opening this year have had construction timelines shaped by resource availability and labor issues related to the global pandemic. At the same time, there are also projects that have moved forward quickly and their construction showcases the range of building conditions around the world. Drawn from different climates and material approaches, they reflect design and construction through a global lens.
Below, the projects we look forward to seeing in 2022:
Taipei Performing Arts Center by OMA
OMA’s Taipei Performing Arts Center (TPAC) is nearly complete in Taiwan. Consisting of three theaters, each functioning autonomously of each other, the OMA scheme seeks to depart from the traditional consensus of performing arts centers as simply containing a large auditorium, medium-sized theater, and small-size black box. The compact form allows for several “faces” defined by the individual theater protruding from the central cube.
Sydney Modern by SANAA
Tokyo-based SANAA has designed a new addition to the Art Gallery of New South Wales (AGNSW) in Sydney. As the firm's first building in Australia, the project will transform the flagship art museum and connect through an outdoor public art garden overlooking Sydney Harbor. The new building is designed to contrast the Gallery’s 19th-century neo-classical building as a light, transparent and open addition.
São Paulo Rosewood Tower by Ateliers Jean Nouvel
Jean Nouvel unveiled the design of his tower project back in 2016: the 22-story building is located near Avenida Paulista in São Paulo . The skyscraper , dubbed Rosewood Tower, is part of Cidade Matarazzo, a 27,000-square-meter site containing historic buildings that once made up the Filomena Matarazzo maternity hospital. A heritage-listed site, the Allard Group is restoring the buildings and creating a cultural center, of which Nouvel’s new tower will be a central component. Set to contain a hotel as well as residential units, Nouvel’s tower is designed to be a vertical continuation of the local landscape.
Abrahamic Family House by Adjaye Associates
Adjaye Associates have been selected as the winners of The Abrahamic Family House competition, in Abu Dhabi. The landmark project, on Saadiyat Island, is a space where 3 religions will come together with the implementation of a mosque, a synagogue, and a church. Sitting on a secular visitor pavilion, the project commissioned by the Higher Committee for Human Fraternity is a first of its kind.
3D Printed Homes by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG)
Homebuilding company Lennar and construction technologies company ICON are collaborating with BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group to build the largest community of 3D-printed homes to date. The 100-home neighborhood in Austin is expected to break ground in 2022 and will combine ICON’s innovative robotics, software, and advanced materials with BIG's designs. The project comes after labor and material shortages, which have made home ownership out of reach for many American families, with almost 5.5 million shortage of single family homes across the country.
Valley by MVRDV
With its landscape of jagged stone terraces, bay-windows, and balconies, covered in dense planting designed by landscape architect Piet Oudolf, Valley brings much-needed greening to Amsterdam’s Zuidas business district. Designed for EDGE Technologies, the 75,000m2 mixed-use project contains apartments, shops, offices, cultural institutes, and a creative centre, highlighted by a publicly accessible "valley floor" located on the building's podium, at the 4th and 5th floors.
Studio City by Zaha Hadid Architects
Located in the Cotai district of Macau adjacent to the Lotus Bridge crossing with mainland China, the Hollywood-inspired Studio City resort has welcomed guests and visitors to the city since 2015. Appointed in 2017 to expand the resort, Zaha Hadid Architects designed Studio City Phase 2 with new leisure, entertainment and hospitality facilities including one of Asia’s largest indoor & outdoor water parks and a six-screen Cineplex together with extensive conference and exhibition spaces.
Nanjing Vertical Forest by Stefano Boeri Architetti
The Nanjing Vertical Forest is located in the Nanjing Pukou District, an area selected to lead the Southern Jiangsu modernization process and the development of the Yangtze River area. The two towers that make up the complex are characterized by the alternation of balconies and plant containers modeled on Milan’s Vertical Forest, and the façades are home to 600 large trees, 200 medium-sized trees and over 2,500 shrubs and trailing plants which will cover an area of 4,500 square meters.
The ReefLine by OMA
OMA and Shohei Shigematsu have designed a proposal for Miami Beach’s first underwater sculpture park and artificial reef in Florida. Working with Ximena Caminos and BlueLab Preservation Society, the project will function as an artificial reef to protect and preserve Miami’s marine life and coastal resilience. Called ReefLine, the design will be a new 7-mile underwater public sculpture park, snorkel trail and artificial reef located off Miami Beach’s shoreline.
Istanbul Modern by Renzo Piano Building Workshop
The Istanbul Modern Museum in the historic Beyoğlu district of Istanbul is located on the waterfront of the western bank of the Bosphorus Strait, facing the Sultanahmet quarter. A new building will replace the existing one currently located between the old city streets of the Galata quarter and the existing port cruise terminal. The new museum will become an urban focal point between the old town to the west, the Bosphorus to the south, the Tophane Park to the north and the new Galataport waterside development to the east which replaces the old pier activity.
San Pellegrino Flagship Factory by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) & West 8
Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) were revealed as the winners of a competition to conceptualize and design a new headquarters and bottling plant for San Pellegrino, located in the terme of the same name in the Alps of northern Italy. The competition brief asked architects to renovate and expand the historic home of the company, the world’s leading sparkling mineral water company, with a “truly innovative and technologically-advanced design” aimed at integrating into the natural aesthetic of the surrounding terrain.
Bezalel Academy by SANAA
SANAA's new campus for the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem is now set for a 2022 opening. Initially proposed in 2013, the new project for Israel’s national school of art broke ground back in 2015. The campus is being built in the Russian Compound in Jerusalem’s City Center. The design will bring together 2,500 students and 500 faculty members as the school moves from the current Mount Scopus Campus.
Xi'an International Football Centre by Zaha Hadid Architects
Zaha Hadid Architects has revealed images of the new Xi’an International Football Centre for the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup. The facility will include a stadium with a 60,000-seat capacity, along with civic, sports, and recreational spaces for the city. Providing optimum conditions for football, the Xi’an International Football Center was also designed in a way to maximize its use by future generations after the 2023 tournament.
Lanternen by Snøhetta & WERK Arkitekter
WERK and Snøhetta were selected as the winners of the maritime center competition on the harbor of Esbjerg, in Denmark. The proposal puts in place a glowing building entitled Lanternen or the Lantern, a new addition that will gather communal activities. The new coastal landmark is both a maritime and a living center for the community along the Westcoast of Denmark. Imagined as a radiant lantern in a very particular landscape, the project aims to enhance the connection between the city and the sea.
Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts by Studio Gang
Creating a vibrant space for social interaction, education, and appreciation for the arts, Studio Gang ’s design for the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts transforms this cultural institution into a signature civic asset. Working from the inside out, the design—which includes both new construction and renovations—clarifies the organization of the building’s interior while also extending AMFA's presence into historic MacArthur Park, opening the museum to the city of Little Rock.
Sundby School by Henning Larsen & SKALA Architects
Located in Denmark’s Lolland-Falster region, Henning Larsen and SKALA's New School in Sundby marked the commencement of a historic project for the country's sustainable educational-facility architecture. The primary school is set to be the largest construction project in Guldborgsund Municipality that ensures high sustainability parameters and community engagement. The school is expected to open its doors at the end of summer 2022, welcoming over 580 students in a nature-oriented premises.
Hekla Tower by Ateliers Jean Nouvel
Jean Nouvel designed the 220-meter-high tower in Paris’ major business district, La Défense. The architect and owner of the French practice has a thirty-year long relationship with the area of La Défense, that dates back to 1982 when he finished second in the competition for the Ark. Hekla will be made up of 47 floors and comprised of office space, private residential units, and student accommodation.
Booking Headquarters by UNStudio
The Booking.com Headquarters is located in the city-centre of Amsterdam currently under construction at the Oosterdokseiland, It's part of one of the largest urban projects in Western Europe. The Booking.com campus will become a lively environment where people can meet, inspire, live, work and play. The Booking.com campus is the last sub-plan of Oosterdokseiland and is imagined as a social hub specifically designed to encourage encounters.
1,000 Trees by Heatherwick Studio
At the very end of 2021, Heatherwick Studio completed the first phase of the 1,000 Trees Development in Shanghai . The 300,000-square-meter project was conceived as a piece of topography that takes the shape of "two tree-covered mountains" populated by 400 terraces and 1000 structural columns. The megaproject is located on Shanghai's Moganshan Road, proximate to the city's M50 Art District. The latest images released show a project design to grow from its context and connect to the adjacent river.
Santiago International Airport by ADPi and Luis Vidal + architects
Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport in Chile is an important connecting hub between America, Oceania and Europe and is among the most efficient and modern in Latin America. The growing number of flights demand caused the Chilean Ministry of Public Works (MOP) to set a project in motion for the extension of the infrastructures which includes the renovation of the existing terminal, the construction of a new international terminal, car park and other auxiliary buildings, water treatment facilities and a power plant.
Grand Egyptian Museum by Heneghan Peng Architects & West 8
The competition for the project was held back in 2003 and drew nearly 2000 entries from 83 countries. Heneghan Peng's design on a desert plateau adjacent to the great Pyramids of Giza and Cairo will be the largest single collection of Egyptian artifacts and, at 100,000m2, one of the largest museums in the world.

Amazing projects to look out for in 2022
Home » News » Amazing projects to look out for in 2022
Buro Happold’s experts are working on incredible projects all around the world, with many due to come to fruition next year. In this article, we showcase a selection of the stand-out projects that are new for 2022.
1. edge suedkreuz, berlin, germany.
EDGE Suedkreuz is one of the largest buildings planned as a modular timber hybrid construction in Germany. It comprises two office buildings, each with six floors and a connecting underground car park, which is fully equipped with charging stations for electric vehicles.
Situated near the Südkreuz station in Berlin’s Schöneberg district, EDGE Technologies is developing the 10,000m² property with the intention of creating 39,000m² of office space for German energy supplier Vattenfall.
Buro Happold was commissioned to deliver an holistic concept consisting of structural engineering, building services engineering (MEP) , BIM and data management and sustainability consulting .
We worked closely with CREE Buildings, innovators of a revolutionary new construction system, to achieve a fully modular, timber-concrete-hybrid structure. The advantages of this approach include rapid construction, the sustainable nature of the material and ultimately, the realisation of a more desirable working environment.
2. Museum of the Future
The Museum of the Future is conceived not as a repository for ancient artefacts, but as an incubator of new ideas, a catalyst for innovation, and a global destination for inventors and entrepreneurs.
A multidisciplinary team worked on this cultural building that has a unique torus shape facade . Our teams helped to translate the artistic and symbolic concepts inherent in the design into a unique 30,000m² building clad in stainless steel.
Our specialist engineers developed bespoke in-house optimisation routines to model and analyse numerous options for the structure to achieve the Museum of the Future’s iconic shape. The outcome was a solution comprised of a complex diagrid framework directly aligned to torus shape and capable of supporting the 890 stainless steel and glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP) panels that form the intricate silvery facade.
3. Bath Quays South – Newark Works
Bath Quays is a flagship regeneration project focused on establishing a thriving commercial quarter at the heart of this UNESCO World Heritage city. Overlooking the River Avon, Bath Quays South – Newark Works is a focal element of this transformative initiative. Conceived to address the city’s shortage of Grade A office facilities, this development mixes historic and modern architecture to produce an inspiring environment for creative minds.
The site encompasses a new office building, No.1 Bath Quays , alongside the refurbished industrial Newark Works. A river bridge for pedestrians and cyclists will connect to a sister development, Bath Quays North, and provide easy access to the city centre.
Newark Works, a former home to crane engineers Stothert & Pitt, will be sympathetically revitalised to offer a range of studio and office units aimed at start-ups and microenterprises. Buro Happold was engaged to provide structural, civil , geotechnical , geoenvironmental and building services engineering (MEP).
4. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Museum
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Museum welcomes 123,750 visitors annually, and another 45-50,000 during the city-wide Cambridge Science Festival that takes place over ten days each spring. The institution is preparing to move into its new home on Kendall Square, where it will occupy more than 58,000ft 2 of galleries, classrooms and performance spaces.
Buro Happold is providing integrated multidisciplinary engineering services for the project, which will occupy the lower two floors of the Weiss Manfredi-designed 20-story office building.
Visitors will enter the museum through a prominent public entrance into a lobby/atrium with admissions desks and stairs to the main galleries on the second floor. The lobby/atrium will support an active ground floor presence, including a 2,000ft 2 public gallery, the MIT Museum Store, as well as an adjoining café and book shop located outside the museum.
5. Shanghai Library East
Once completed, Shanghai Library East will house 4.8 million books, sitting atop two pavilions that contain a 1,200-seat performance venue, exhibition and events spaces, as well as a dedicated children’s library.
Architects Schmidt Hammer Lassen conceived the building as a dramatic monolith that appears to float above the tree canopy of the surrounding parkland. Arranged as a series of open plan floors around a vast central atrium (more than 60,000m 3 volume), the library is designed as an open, inviting space in which people can move easily between levels and discover new collections, exhibitions and events.
Buro Happold was engaged to provide building services (MEP) engineering support. We worked closely with the design team to find ways to integrate our services strategy into the fabric of the building with minimal visual impact. Our building services team used the latest software to model comfort and system thermal performance in a 3D environment. They used this information to fine tune several elements of the building’s design.

Top 10 On Going Mega Projects In World 2022 That You Must Know About
Following are the top 10 on going mega projects in world that you must know about, 1. the great man made river mega project , libya.
Since 1985, the “Great Man-Made River” (GMR) has been a work in progress. It is still considered the world’s largest irrigation project, and when completed, it would deliver water to over 350,000 acres of agricultural land. It will not only help Libyan farmers with their crops, but it will also improve access to safe drinking water in the majority of Libya’s cities.
The GMR’s water supply is the Nubian Sandstone Aquifer System, which is the world’s largest known fossil water aquifer system. The project is expected to be completed in 2030.

2. Chuo Shinkansen High Speed Railway Project, Japan
Japan’s Linear Chuo Shinkansen high-speed train line, officially dubbed the Linear Chuo Shinkansen, will transport passengers 286 kilometers from Tokyo to Nagoya in about 40 minutes. The trains on this line will travel at a speed of about 313 mph and will be based on the country’s world-leading Superconducting Magnetic Levitation (Maglev) system.
The new line will be underground for around 86 percent of its length, necessitating major tunnel construction. Before construction on extending the line to Osaka proceeds, the project is expected to be completed by 2027.
3. Jubail II, Saudi Arabia
Jubail II, a planned industrial metropolis in Saudi Arabia, has been in the works for almost 22 years. It began its second phase in 2014, at a cost of $11 billion, and has been dubbed the world’s largest civil engineering project. Jubail II will have 100 industrial plants, miles of railways, motorways, and roads, an 800,000 cubic meter water desalination facility (one of the world’s largest), and an oil refinery capable of producing 350,000 barrels per day when it is finished in 2024. More than 20,000 construction workers are on site at any given time during peak building season.

4. Dubailand, Dubai, UAE
The $64 billion Dubailand, an entertainment complex on a magnitude and scope the world has never seen before, is another mega-project on our list that will call Dubai home. The 278-square-kilometer complex, which would contain theme parks, sports stadiums, health facilities, science attractions, eco-tourism, and hotels, could comfortably house three Walt Disney Worlds. The completed project will contain the world’s largest hotel, with 6,500 rooms and a ten-million-square-foot shopping center. The construction mega-project, which was first announced in 2003, has met numerous difficulties along the way, including the global recession of 2008, which caused development to halt for more than 5 years. Dubailand is currently planned to begin for business in 2025.

5. Expansion Project of International Space Station, Space
All right, so this one isn’t technically “in the world”, but it is “of the world”. The International Space Station (ISS), created by a consortium of fifteen nations and five space agencies, is set to undergo some renovations that’ll cost a staggering US$60bn.
According to some sources, the current recommended expansion plans ─ not yet finalised ─ could come to a total cost exceeding US$1tn. If the expansions go ahead, the ISS will be able to house up to one million people.

6. South-North Water Transfer Project, China
If you’ve ever looked at China’s population distribution or water resources (I have no idea why), you’ll notice that they’re slightly disproportionate. Nearly half of the country’s population lives in the north, while only 20% of the country’s water resources are found there. It’s a huge disparity.
To address the issue, China’s government has set aside funds for the construction of three massive canals. Each canal will be about 600 miles long, carrying water from China’s three main rivers to the country’s northern areas. According to Chinese sources, the project will take little over fifty years to complete and will provide 44.6 billion cubic meters of water each year.
7. International Airport Al Maktoum , Dubai
If you’ve ever visited London Heathrow, you’ll have a good idea of what a “large” airport looks like. That’s only 4.6 square miles compared to Al Maktoum International Airport’s massive 21-square-mile site.
Dubai’s Al Maktoum Airport is intended to handle 200 wide-body planes at any given time, and it’s only going to get bigger with the airport’s second expansion, which is expected to cost a staggering US$32 billion and has no set completion date.

8. Cross Rail Project, London
Did you know that London’s subterranean railway system was the world’s first? Many folks do not. Fun facts aside, the London underground network continues to expand rapidly; currently, crews are nearing the finish of a nearly thirteen-year effort to add 26 miles of tunnel, linking 40 stations, to the existing network via the ‘Elizabeth line.’ The bill is expected to be around US$23 billion.
The Elizabeth line is currently being delivered, which was already in its complicated final stages, during a period of significant uncertainty due to the risk and potential consequences of more COVID-19 breakouts. The project’s backers hope to open the line to passengers “as soon as physically possible,” maybe in the first half of 2022.

9. High-speed Railway Project, United States
The California high-speed rail network project began in 2015 and is expected to be completed in 2029, while COVID-19 could cause delays. The high-speed trains will run from San Diego in the south to San Francisco in the north, connecting eight of the state’s ten largest cities.
The project will be divided into two phases: Phase 1 will connect Los Angeles to San Francisco, while Phase 2 would connect San Diego and Sacramento.
The high-speed rail demonstrates the west-coast states’ commitment to sustainability, as each 200-mph train will be entirely electric and run on renewable energy.

10. Beijing Airport Project, China
China’s development projects are growing in magnitude as it seeks to impose its authority on every area of global life. In terms of cost, total square miles, and passenger and plane capacity, Beijing International Airport will eventually surpass Dubai’s Al Maktoum International Airport, which is listed above.
The first phase of the project was completed in time for the 2008 Olympic Games, and the construction team plans to finish the second phase by 2025.

Hydrogen Production and Infrastructure Projects Database
Tracks data on projects for the production of hydrogen for energy or climate change-mitigation purposes and the development of hydrogen infrastructure
The IEA produced these datasets as part of efforts to track advances in low-emissions hydrogen technology.
The Hydrogen Production Projects Database covers all projects commissioned worldwide since 2000 to produce hydrogen for energy or climate change-mitigation purposes. It includes projects that have the objective either to reduce emissions associated with producing hydrogen for existing applications, or to use hydrogen as an energy carrier or industrial feedstock in new applications that have the potential to be a low-emissions technology option. Projects in planning or under construction are also included.
The Hydrogen Infrastructure Projects Database covers all projects under development worldwide of hydrogen pipelines, underground storage facilities and import/export terminals dedicated to low-emissions hydrogen and hydrogen-based fuels.
These databases complements other technology-related tracking efforts, such as the Clean Energy Demonstration Projects Database and the CCUS Projects Database .
Several organisations and companies provided essential input and feedback on the databases. They include: Air Liquide; AtlantHy; Bayernets; Belgium Hydrogen Council; bp; Cepsa; Colombian Hydrogen Association; Conexus Baltic Grid; Confederation of Indian Industry; Department for Energy Security and Net Zero, United Kingdom; Department of Energy, United States; Desfa; EDF; European Hydrogen Observatory; Enagás Renovables; Enagás; Eni; Equinor; ExxonMobil; Fluxys; France Hydrogène; H2 Chile; Gas Connect Austria GmbH; Gas Storage Denmark; Gascade; Gasunie; GRTgas; Hydrogen Europe; Iberdrola; Infinite Green Energy; Kawasaki Heavy Industries; Ministry of Energy & Infrastructure, United Arab Emirates; NET4GAS; Nordion Energi; OGE; Ontras; Plinovodi; Port of Rotterdam; Teréga; Terranets bw GmbH; Thyssengas; thyssenkrupp nucera; Trans Austria Gasleitung GmbH; Repsol; RWE; Snam; Sunfire; thyssenkrupp steel; Verso Energy; Woodside; and Yara.

The Hydrogen Production and Infrastructure Projects Database is updated annually in October.
Hydrogen is a versatile energy carrier, which can help to tackle various critical energy challenges. Hydrogen can be produced from almost all energy resources, though today’s use of hydrogen in oil refining and chemical production is mostly covered by hydrogen from fossil fuels, with significant associated CO2 emissions.

IMF projects global growth to slow to 2.9% in 2024 amid economic slowdown
The IMF's baseline forecast indicates a slowdown in global growth from 3.5% in 2022, to 3% in 2023, and 2.9% in 2024, falling below the historical average of 3.8% recorded between 2000-2019.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has released its latest economic projections, stating that global growth is expected to remain at 3 percent in 2023 and further decline to 2.9 percent in 2024, as per an ANI report. This marks one of the lowest growth rates in decades.
According to the IMF's "Navigating Global Divergences" report for October 2023, substantial economic recovery on a global scale faces significant challenges. The baseline forecast indicates a slowdown in global growth from 3.5 percent in 2022, to 3 percent in 2023, and 2.9 percent in 2024, falling below the historical average of 3.8 percent recorded between 2000 and 2019.
Advanced economies are also expected to experience a decline, dropping from 2.6 percent growth in 2022 to 1.5 percent in 2023 and 1.4 percent in 2024. This is attributed to policy tightening aimed at curbing inflation.
Emerging markets and developing economies are likely to witness a slight decrease in growth from 4.1 percent in 2022 to 4 percent in both 2023 and 2024.
The report highlights that global inflation is expected to gradually decrease, declining from 8.7 percent in 2022, to 6.9 percent in 2023, and 5.8 percent in 2024. Tighter monetary policies and lower international commodity prices contribute to this decline.
However, core inflation is projected to decrease at a slower pace, with a return to target inflation not expected until 2025 in most cases.
The IMF emphasizes the importance of focusing on monetary policy actions and frameworks to anchor inflation expectations. Effective communication strategies among various stakeholders are also crucial in managing inflation expectations.
The report raises concerns about potential disruptions to global trade in commodities due to increasing worries about geo-economic fragmentation. It highlights the potential impact of such disruptions on commodity prices , economic activity, and the green energy transition.
Ongoing Challenges and Risks
Despite the relative resilience displayed in the global economy, particularly in earlier recovery stages, economic activity still lags behind pre-pandemic levels, especially in emerging market and developing economies, with disparities between regions widening.
Several factors continue to hinder a robust recovery, including the persistent effects of the pandemic, the Ukraine conflict, geo-economic fragmentation, cyclical factors related to monetary policy tightening, withdrawal of fiscal support , and extreme weather events. While the likelihood of a hard landing has decreased, risks to global growth persist.
China's property sector crisis and its potential spill-over effects on commodity exporters are of particular concern. Rising near-term inflation expectations and tight labor markets could lead to core inflation pressures requiring higher-than-expected policy rates. Climate and geopolitical shocks also pose risks, potentially resulting in food and energy price spikes.
The IMF suggests that effective policies, coordination, and structural reforms are essential to successfully navigate these challenges and achieve a robust and sustainable recovery.
