^That tower isn't even close to being accurate. I suggested they should fix the top, but they never did. Never mind how the floors are no where near being correct. As of now, the only accurate Burj Dubai model is my own, although I'm not quite done with it.

I was surparised to hear that months ago they decided to use concrete to construct Buji Dubai instead of steel? I know that with concrete it's a very durable material. You can pretty much shape it to whatever you want. But, with steel the building would go up 10x faster. But, if steel was used I think the building would have to be wider? Can anyone tell me the offical reason why they used concrete instead of steel? Perhaps climate helped ease the desiction to use concrete?
