I knew those things were no longer safe when I heard that female members of your family were in town

Anyway, great that they are finally putting cladding up on all three wings. We will be able to track it in Joobn's daily updates now.

Oh yeah, that makes sense. Plus I know Dubai is going "green" so there might be less dust in the immediate area in the future.

I thought it'd be neat if you could shoot a video showing one of the panels installed and if you could zoom in close up like you did on those workers instaling the metal corner partition piece. If it took over half an hour though (which makes sense to lower and carefully connect one), I'm not sure how easy or not that'd be to do. Even without this request, AMAZING update and thanks very much for you guys continuing to provide us excellent updates.

According to Imre's pics, it looks like they're still working on 134th, although Emaar says it finished 134th.

There may be 134 completed floors, but you can see in this picture they're installing a crocodile on the 135th floor for security reasons.

The cladding process looks awesome! I'm curious why do they putting it at few different part of Burj Dubai? Why not they just start it at one spot and go spread from it just make it easier and faster?

Multiple teams of course. This way they can put up more than one at the same time.

Nice to know.
The Ostankino Tower is being renovated, and when it's done, it'll be taller than the CN Tower.

And is there somewhere that you can see who's posted in this thread, or did you go through and count!?
