First they have to pour concrete for the raft foundation; non-stop for more then 24 hours.

I'm not an engineer, but all that rebar work seems to be excessive.

Any good reason why they do this? Unstable ground???

The terrain has to much undergroung water (sand terrain and next to the sea) and the water put pressure on the structure, trying to push it up, therefore a thick and HEAVY raft foundation is build, to balance the water pressure.

Ahh! That makes sense. Thanks for the explanation. Imagine how much steel is required for those highrises on the Palm Jumeirah and Jumeirah Beach Residence (40 towers) Projects alone.

It's kinda scary thinking about how fast the earth population grows.

I don't know what a construction joint is, but it seems pretty bad for you guys

How many cubic meters of concrete? Look like minimum 50m x 50m x 2m

Why the thick concrete floor

It does not make sense to me ...!
I estimate that the concrete 'raft' is, at maximum, 10 metres below the water table. The building itself is very high, and thus heavy. Much heavier than a column of water of 10 m.
Anyone have an alternative explanation?
