Almas tower seem have big problem with panels, they don't resist to Dubai weather and heat. The spire's panels are deformed

But a Golden Raspberry Award for the construction speed to finish this tower and for the cladding quality (look at the spire....)!

Maybe the discovering of the panels (bad) quality is one of the reasons why the cladding has been very slow or stalled recently
