that is hard to tell. There is no standard time between the siol testing and start of excavation. Could bij weeks but also months.

Mh, i dont like this project.
It doesnt "look" serious to me. It seems more like a "just for fun" construction.

yup ... it has been accomodated as much as possible by reducing the floor to floor height. actually what the investor want was more number of rooms ... and i would say Zaha&Meinhardt has been trying so hard to achive it. today Zaha's architect was here in SG for the Dubai Financial Market meeting ...

@AltinD .. wah you're so informative .. cool! btw, do you have any idea of how the Dubai Municipality would do the floor numbering? where should we start no.1 etc ? thx b4hand

LOL, me informative? I am just repeating what someone mentioned in here, and it seams forgot about it at all (not the first time it happened though).

I have no idea about the numbering, since I don't know the structure, but here it starts with G and then there's M (Mezzanine) and so one, however I would presume that the first floor where offices, apartments, hotel rooms starts, should be labeled "1"

I didn't understood the second part, but my point is that 1st Floor should be labelled the floor from where the regular office, residential or hotel room spaces start. Every other floor beneath that should be labelled differently, starting from G (obviously) for the tower's entrance and then M or even M1 and M2 as I've seen elsewhere.

(M = Mezzanine Floor)

BTW, I don't like the idea of lowering the ceiling height to accomodate more floors, they should just add floors on top, or at least a combination of the two so everyone will be happy, including us the height (increase) obsessed ones.
