Why do projects in Dubai seem to use way more scaffolding compared to projects elsewhere?

1. More concrete used then elsewhere 2. Labour costs are lower

The project had a very slow start, than rose up very fast, and now is having a very slow topping out.

Not, its the same Panasonic DMC FZ50, fix lens :

•LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT 12x optical zoom (35-420mm equiv.)

Weather was clear yesterday



My camera is getting old (using since 2007) , probably need to buy a new one soon but cant find similar from the Panasonic with fix lens.
