I've been working on a new model using a scale based on that of photos posted here and elsewere. It is by far the most accurate model to be shown by anyone that I'm aware of. While making it, I calculated a base of a little over 97m from podium tip to podium tip. There is a margin of error on the measurement of about 5%, meaning it could be between 92.38 and 101.85m, with a 70% probability of it being within 2% of 97m.

Exactly, today is 27 and the last pictures were from 24th. I also don't get at all all this insisting about the floorplate.

Was that a joke!
If you don't prefer to see updates each week then the easiest thing to do is only visit the forum once a month! or configure IE not to display images!
I can't see why anyone would want the soon-to-be-tallest building in the World to get updates only once a month! Construction will soon have to be greater than 1 floor a week to meet their own deadline so there's going to be a lot happening on the building and around it... plus some fascia soon hopefully.
Also as there appears to be more than one person taking pictures it doesn't always mean the same person is going every week - and the people often take pictures from different places. Some from far away, some from at the site - so they're always different.

I am quite excited to see this building rise. Already, it's taking its place in Dubai, and even though it's only about 50 storeys tall, once this thing hits 100, then it'll tower over most, if not all, of the building of Dubai. I can't wait!

Im sure it will be highest ob deck in world? the 10 levl observation crown atop SWFC is approx 450-480m high. The only thing i can think of that will be close to 500m ob deck will be the Solar Tower scheduled to start 2007 in outback NSW,Australia. It was to be 1000m but now will rise 500m and have a observvation deck which will encircle the towers rim . A lift attached to a track will rise up the chimney with views as far as you can see. nothing like Dubai but mostly sheep paddocks.lol
For those who want to keep tabs on Burj Dubais height. its basically 3.8m per floor. thus lev50 x 3.8m= 190m. there abouts.
the article says BurjD rises a floor eveyr 4days, thus approx 170 days left for 2006 or 42 more floors to add so lev92 by NYE? or 350m!
thus milestones-
lev40=152m/500ft (became a skyscraper)
lev50=190m-June 20/06 Solistice.
lev60=228m
lev70=266m
lev80=304m or 1000ft!
lev92=350m -NYE 2007.(will be highest bldg in Dubai ,or as high as Emerates tower spire).
lev100=380m
lev110=418m
lev120=456m
lev130=494m
lev134=509m (becomes tallest bldg in world surpassing taipei101)- june 2007?
lev140=532m
lev146=555m-(becomes tallest free standing structure surpassing 553m CN Tower)
lev150=570m
lev160=608m (2000ft) -oct 2007?
161 + PLANT=625m roof
200m spire is added to becomes tallest man-made structure surpassing 628m /KVLY mast in Blanchard,USA.
-----------------------------
i scaled this pic as if it was 800m and then counted to 50 floors and it equates to the 5th lowest tier at 190m. spot on. it even measures correctly at 90m wide at widest point. so its pretty close as accuracy goes.
great str
i got approx 625m to roof. so 630m is in that vicinity.amazing pix. cheers

I do too. Instead of trying to build that ugly Freedom Tower, why don't they build stronger, more modern versions of the old buildings. Then everything will look right and New York will see like the old, happy New York. I don't mean to put the Burj Dubai topic off-topic, I'm pumped for when the construction starts to really pick up.

if the tower is 625meters from the roof which is 161 level. but in a article in gulfnews said(burj dubai is slated to go as high as 200 floors,which was revealed by Abdullah m. bin lahej,director of construction for Emaar properties,developer of the tower. This means the building's height, which remains a well-kept secret, could go well beyond the estimated 750 metres if calculated on the standard height of an average floor. so is going to be 200 floors not 161? and that will mean that the highest floor could possible be over 750 meters

Logistics

Does anybody know something about the logistic management on burj dubai construction site?

e.g.
Is there a logistic manager on site?
Have they planned and simulated material flows?
Did they install an automatic material-ID-System for building materials?
Have they a central warehouse-management?
etc.

I´m grateful for any advice!
