OMG! How do I do to work in this building? Is it possible being a non-arabic civil engineer?

Considering the design firm is American I'm sure the engineering team for the building will be multinational. Actually the laborers will also most likely be foreigners like they are in the rest of the Middle East.

I think that this proyect is amazing and possible. Probably the proyect help to the touristic develompment of the city or country, but the construction involves many technical challenges; always existing limits for the materials and the physics.

Doesn't Pagnotta need a civil engineer?

Seriously, I work in general buildings (50-100m) in Brazil as project coordinator. Sadly, build skyscrapers isn't our priority or conditions (several tons of steel exported to China, but the convencional concrete structures is still the rule around here)...Anyway, I dream about a job in skyscrapers. Hopefully the SSC will help me out! I would go anywhere!

Back to the topic, the prep stage in these pictures is exciting! I hope it gonna be build!

I think not many people will agree with you on that one It wasn't beautiful imo but it was very impressive building. First of it was extremely massive building, almost as wide as burj base, and it go like that almost to the very top of it. It consisted of four separate buildings connected with sky-bridges at several levels and it has huge empty space in the middle. What's more unlike burj or kingdom tower it would reach its assumed height properly having observation deck almost at the very top of it (maybe even 1400m) not in the middle of the building like burj or kingdom. So yeah it was truly awesome structure that we most likely will never see being build.

I thought its height was the most impressive part but that's about it.

we don't know if they've started with the foundations already. and if not, it'll take at least 1 year.

Yeah since there's very little photos, it's hard to know anything about this tower

There was news that bin ladin group will start moving theirs equipment on July 7. We also heard that porject currently is "on hold" since the contractor (bin ladin group) is waiting for the final foundation designs based on the tests prepared earlier. Well none of this is official, but I guess what has been done up to know was just test piles, and now they will start with actual foundation.

Apparently this project will be completed in 3 phases, the first two so far are define and the 3rd phase is still not defined.

First phase: The tower
Seocnd Phase: Foundation of the whole project
Third Phase: not defined as of yet.

Maybe that's what they're waiting for?
