What date are you booked in April? I'm there mid January and again in April for accurate measurements, updates, pictures and a video documentary. I'll also be trying to get the first interior shots too! (although my girlfriend thinks it's a sunshine holiday!)
I dind`t even said that you are wrong. I just said that i use the diagram from Culwulla.

I will stay during the first week in April.

I will try to beat my thread from April 2005.

Culligan wins Burj Dubai water contract

Culligan International (Emirates) has won a contract to supply water treatment products for the Burj Dubai following a global competitive tender competition.

The Company will provide 1524mm (60 inch) Multimedia Filters for drinking water in addition to equipment and chemicals to treat the chilled water distribution system used for the building’s air conditioning. Deliveries are expected to take place during 2007.

Joint venture partners BESIX, Samsung and Arabtec recently celebrated the completion of the 80th floor, the highest level to date for a concrete structure in the Middle East. The project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2008, with the final height expected to be over 800m.

MEP works are being carried out in a joint venture contract by ETA, Voltas and Hitachi.

god finally the UAS is showing us what hyper skyscrapers of this century is gonna look like by utilizing the oil money. It's a building every city wants to build up but can put into practice due to the lackin of funds. I'll keep an eye on its soaring up every day!
