I'm not a civil engineer but following that sad event, I spoke a bit with 2 friends of mine who are. They both told me that on that kind of working site, the financial pressure is so intense that even in the case of lethal accidents, the stop is not really long.

I have no idea of the law in UAE but considering the recent boom of the real estate sector, I think Emaar will do as much as it can to change the people who are currently in police custody and restart the work.

But apparently, they have removed the 2 cranes on top of the concrete structure (the broken one, of course, but also the other). They probably plan to get some others.

And a more general question: is the site still cordoned?

May the poor Workers rest in peace

I dont understand how Emaar could let something like this happen.

i know Emaar isent directly responsible for all the work on the site, this was probably a sub contractor. But Emaar should check all the Details better after this especially when it comes to safelty.

Emaar is the developer/client, not the contractor that does the work, or the supervisor. You can't blame them for what happened..... plus, accidents unfortunatelly do happen.
