You think the build fast? In the Netherlands they build one core with 6 floors a week, that is fast.

Remembering back to thread 1. Burj Dubai is sitting in a hole that's at least 5m. There's 2 basement levels below what we can see aren't there - so although it looks like 110m - it might actually be 120m.
The workers might be slightly smaller than 1.7m, - if they were 1.6m (average) then the calculation would come out around 110m.
Anyway - knowing how fast the core's rising we could be 110-120m by now ;-)
did you see my answer? post no 235.
forget measuring workers.lol
ive got plans. lev29 = 110m above ground floor.

Post the plans!

Culwulla! So what do your plans look like?
CAn you post some part of them? Do you have any floorplans
of the concourse/podium or anything else interesting to
share?

Just thought I'd ask.....Is it any more than the crossectional
diagram we have seen many times before (which I sometimes
fill in with red to indicate construction progress?)

well you also have to keep in mind, the buildings in netherlands aren't as big as this one. So really 6 floors on those buildings would pretty much be equal to the amount of work required to raise this building by one floor.

going off my monthly construction diagrams, on feb 1 BD was up to lev25, come march 1 next week, it would of reached lev30, thus 5 floors in 4 weeks. so maybe a floor every 5 days?
