Six Construct got the contract for the foundation raft.

The link below is in french:
http://www.lalibre.be/economie/libre...7064612b00cd5d


Partial translation:
The Belgian construction group Besix Group has been awarded the contract for the preliminary work on the construction of The Tower, the world's tallest tower in Dubai, announced on Tuesday in the margins of its annual results. The latter, which is to be built by the World Expo in Dubai in 2020, will exceed 1,000 meters in height. The company will take care of the foundations and the raft. It is also a candidate for the construction of the tower itself, but no decision has yet been taken.

History is Written in Dubai yet again. Seeing this rise will be very interesting especially if they seriously try to hit a 2020 completion date.

They are building this thing at pre-crisis speed, which is awesome! Such a rarity nowadays in Dubai

Does anyone know when those massive cables that support "The Tower" will be installed or is that supposed to be secret?

Why would that be a secret? They will be installed when the time/work of the building has come for them.. to be installed :P AKA they will be installed when they are needed to be installed

I'm really looking forward to see this structure rise!

They will be installing them next week and they will just hang in the air until the tower catches up to them...

Perhaps uakoops didn't explain it quite right. I've seen this type of construction before.

1. The cables are placed using temporary anchor points at grade, and then suspended from a scaffolding in place, then tightened.

2. The footings and tower are then cast-in-place, with the footings cast around the base of the cable, and then the tower built-up to meet the cables.

In this way, the proper placement of the cable anchor points can be cast into the tower structure.

I was being sarcastic. Obviously they can't place the cables until the tower reaches the height where they will be attached.

I really doubt if this tower starts going vertical within this year.


So, the race with Jeddah Tower is still fully open...

So what?
I like both structures be complete, the sooner the better.


But 1000+ is just over the borders of our present technical experience, partly terra incognita.
So let's stay realistic...
