In my own understanding that Burj Dubai was on hold for a several times because of construction workers didn't know how to build some things so they were in training. After they get educated so they build Burj Dubai faster than before.

I don't know about that. The base of FT is almost complete, they may even be starting it already, IDK. CS has over 200 more feet to build than FT and I think the design of CS may take longer. Not saying I like either one better because I like both, but I think it's too early to tell which one will be completed first. Maybe by this time next year we'll know.

That's not the point. The point is that even if the foundations were done NOW and they were up to street level, even a floor per week wouldn't get it done by the end of 2010 (there's another 40m above the 150th floor). So yeah...not going to happen.

Most people think the circular steel will be pounded into the ground and then the ground within the circle will be excavated. The steel will prevent the resulting hole from being refilled with earth.

It's very simple, and has been explained multiple times in the past couple pages. The steel is holding back the dirt so they can excavate the core. Top down means they will build the ground level first, and then dig out the basement and build up at the same time.

They have built down. The caissons and core (which is not top-down, hence the sheet metal wall holding the dirt back so they can begin excavating) will support the surrounding structure as they build down.

Here, this is what it says

"Underground multi-storey car park this exercise describes you the building procedure of an underground multi-storey car park, which is provided in a soft alluvialen deposit close at a retaining wall. The retaining wall must be supported for setting behind the wall, which could cause damage for on close buildings with each deep excavation, in order bending the wall inward and, to avoid. The ' Topdown' building method uses the base plates, in order to support the walls. In order to reach this, the plates before the excavation of the cellar must be concreted. Since the supports carry the plates, these must be first provided. That unusual at this project is the choice of a sheet pile wall instead of the more common slotted wall or a drilling pile diaphragm. This exercise was selected, in order to confront you with a geotechnical problem definition in line with standard usage. They will fall with will be able to use healthy human understanding simple, practical judgements and, which you will learn with different fundamental aspects the soil mechanics. Understanding of the connections, combined with a practical aspect, is absolutely important, in order to make for you possible the release of the geotechnical problems, which are present in each civil engineer project. They will be asked in this lecture several times according to your opinion as an engineer and some simple computations accomplish. To a certain time you your earlier answers are pointed, so that you can improve and consider your considerations in view of the extended knowledge. So it is to also concern in this part of the lecture discoveries make, because there are no templateful absolutely correct answers. To discussions with colleagues one encourages; nevertheless it is expected that each studying comes to their own individual answer."
