I feel really bad about laughing at this, but you are totally right! Renovation works should start immediately! They can't just let it stand around like this for month like the other developer did with The Torch!

The Dubai government should really boost building code standards. Why build supertalls if they all catch on fire?

Was not so much that it caught fire, but the speed it spread was scary...

And this is a building that almost stand alone...

Don't even wanna think about a similar fire in Dubai Marina.

The way the outer sheathing burned, it looked like the interior of the building caught fire.

This is very tragic indeed

And it really raises questions about the state owned Emaar as a serious Skyscraper developer. A fire test of this cladding before they even put it on the Building at all would show how lethal it is.

i saw it live too on television and the fire seemed to spread faster than it would have done, even on untreated dry Wood.

and if u want to go with this facade type anyway u should have external sprinklers to ward it off to some degree at least.
