MAY DAY-Worlds tallest construction diagram + big 3

well its may 1st already. lots of action happening
the big 3 are going well. SWFC has taken off again and now 170m/lev38, Burj Dubai is lev42/157m. Im basically guessing ICC . we have updates but always from afar. must be a hard site to photograph?

THE BIG THREE



the worlds tallest diagram update is in progress and should be ready by tommorrow morning.
watch this space....

A nice update on the current situation with the big 3, cheers

I can't image how tall 640meters high is, I feel dizzy just thinking about it.

i also think it is not that tall at the moment.

anyway, good update again, and it is interesting how SWFC and BD always come closer together and then SWFC is faster again, but this has to do with Burj Dubai's three wings probably, the inner core is not that fast if they focus on the outer wings.
