The renderings are likely not the final design anyway... they will most likely be changing the design during construction.
I think you are right.

forecasts were made using linear & polynomial trendlines.


floors are counted based on number plates on Burj Dubai.


...and as you can see, the first floor is quite high actually.

Dammit with all these threats and stuff it's good they kept the height secret. I really hope burj dubai wins out in the end (I don't want it taller than about 810m but for various reasons I'm pretty sure al burj will be < that) since it's not only ultra-tall but one of the best designed scrapers I've ever seen. The perfect WTB, a soaring tower piercing the sky .

BTW I wonder which facade they'll use, the blue one or the silver.

Dazz, I tend to go with the polynomial graph rather than linear. It really seems to be picking up speed and when the floors get smaller in area, then it should speed up even more

MORE RENDERS!

Can anybody put a render of the completed BD in a pic of the city skyline to see how massive it will look in 2008? I have seen renders of it in Chicago and in H.K. but not in it's own home town? If someone is good enough to put the construction status (or completed) projects in 2008 in with the pic would be great. Somebody give us an idea on what this town will look like in 2008.

Since we are blocked from sending you a good pic of the dubai skyline, here is a link where a good Dubai skyline would be perfect:

http://schnecko.faulenzt.net/emirate...eien/dubai.jpg

or Google "Dubai skyline" and pick from several good pics.

Thanks

Burj Dubai won't be seen in that pic. Here's the best image to use though, if you look at the two white towers next to the engine you should see the burj behind those. Maybe Larven can do his work on this and come up with a supercool render. I don't think it's right to put only burj dubai in the render though because by the time it's finished several new towers will also be completed, some of which will hit 300m

Here is a proper render with dubai's current skyline:
Keep in mind that a fair few talls will be built next to the highway and also those midrises where DIFC is should be towers including one that should and hit 330m and is due to start construction next month. A 333m tall is already U/C and is at around floor 30 now.

Lets see renders with real pics. Not the same old renders (and I do mean old)we have been seeing for the last 9 threads.

Thanks

Ithink you cannot use a linear or polynomial graph to mark the trend in progression... think about it, if the polynomial curve continues, then it implies that before 2008 theyll be on a ridiculous construction speed, maybe 2 floors a day or more.

with a linear graph your suggesting that the speed they pour the earlier floors, will continue for ever. Also quite unrealistic. THe shape of graph thatll correctly map the construction is one which starts slowly then levels out to a linear relationship.

There are limits on the speed floor plates can be added, basically the time it takes concrete to set.... yet at the same time you can always expect the first few floors to be slower due to increased size, setting up the auto climb frameworks, different floor plates, and organising the work force.

so in my mind whilst the graphs are useful for showing current trends, using them to generalise for the future is fairly useless

I think I may have calculated this right. I wasn't sure what the floor height was so I used 3.5m, and used 1.5 floors a week construction. Construction staying constant, Burj Dubai will eclipse the CN Tower on the week on 12-18 August, 2007.

Well, I think it'll be growing faster by then. Definitely not that fast but still faster than it is now.

I know that render is old but it's the best we have showing burj dubai in the current (or not so current) skyline .I say that because if you look at it, chelsea tower hasn't even been built so the pic they based it on is definitely old. If you want a new render with burj dubai in the skyline then there is none, unless Larven makes one with that aerial shot
