Today I had on my technik school a presentation from a Dutch Doka engineer about the Doka concrete systems. There were very proud that they have the highest building in there programma.

He told use that the concrete systems work till 590 m.
Thene the construction goes further in a steele construction till 800-820 m.

I don't no off this meters is still current.

I doubt so. Not over 5-10% of cranes in Asia. You forget about China, they building not less than 120mln sq m of floor areas every year. Korea building a lot of highrise commieblocks as well, using cranes of course...

Not really, its preety much average internet speed here if your using highspeed. I pay only about $40 canadian. You can't get high speed internet in jeddah though can you because the last time i was there they didnt have any.

BTW how close is the burj dubai close to SZR because in the pic it looks very close.

Since my last update on Saturday, looks like both the core and the wings have risen by another floor. It seams that the tower has sped up to the 2 floor per week circle.
