I don't think we will see facade work until the core hits 40 stories, or double what it is now. Thats when most supertalls usally start with the outer skin. I don't think we'll see fcade work on the Burj Dubai until the concrete core hits 100 stories, or maybe as soon as 300 meters.

Do a close-up one for the Burj Dubai also. They should be updating that building by the end of the week. The latest pics of the B.D. are a week old, so don't go by those.

You do a great job.

Thanks

This is one of the fastest growing towers I've ever seen. It's HUGE and yet it is growing at an incredible speed. I love it!

I would agree, on this tower. Cladding should begin when the core is up between 40 or 50 floors, remember that some steel framing will be encased in concrete. (look at the close up, and note the absence of the perimiter steel strip in certain locations,to allow forms to be placed.) The strip is floor edge,
and will be used to attach the cladding system to the structure.

However, the Burj Dubai will also, (I'm sure) see cladding begin between the 45th and 65th floors, well before it reaches the 100th. (my interest in this tower is the HVAC system, and how much of it is actually in the tower,this system will be huge,and move hundreds of tons of air.
