Why only 147 floors???

^After 147 their work is probably done. The rest of the construction will be carried out using non-doka products.

But still DOKA will work to a height of minimum 578 meters.

I say a minimum, if there will be ONLY one step for each of the 3.5m, 3.7m & 4.0m height, so:

(177 x 3.20) + (1 x 3.50) + (1 x 3.70) + (1 x 4.00) = 577.60 meters

We know for sure that there will be more then 1 step with those heights, so it is safe to say, the concrete part will easily go past 600 meters.

They also claimed in their website that the height of the building was 705 m. Think about it

What they write is very CLEAR: 180 steps, with each step being 3.2/3.5/3.7 & 4m in height. You do the math ... oh wait i already did that just 2 posts above.

The height that AltinD and Dubaiflo give are about the same, regardless of the steps it looks like it's up to 575m. The floors we'll just have to see but even if it's less, equal to, or more than we're estimating, the height will probably be what is figured here. Although I'd like to think that each step also is equal to one floor, apparently not.

Those numbers are not consistant with the photos of the building under construction.

Hmm I think what he's getting at STR is that he's just saying he feels at the lowest estimation, there are 177 steps of 3.20 meters each. True, from the photos we know there are a lot more than 1 step of the 3.5, 3.7, and 4.0 meter segments so again, perhaps what was originally stated as the end of DOKA's work at 575 meters may be in reality, increased, even if the number of total steps and established floor-height ratios don't change.

I'm not saying his thinking is right or wrong, just that the numbers can;t possibly be anything like that. Honestly, I think the Doka numbers are wrong somewhere. Afterall, they're the only ones posting 147 floors.

Ah ok that's np, STR, just trying to sort it all out. It can be a bit confusing (maybe purposely) with all the companies and discussion about. I know it's been said before but atleast it does encourage continuous interest in the tower and if anything, more awareness for it. Guess we'll know when it's done but until then we can enjoy it rise and the changes made from photo post to post.

Hopefully Imre will have some updates tommorow (as long as he doesn't get too bogged down with all his other photo requests ). Either way I'm guessing AltinD will have some great shots this weekend.
