Can't they at least give those windows a quick rinse before they install them?

Question: When it is 45 degrees C. outside, what is a typical temperature indoors in an office or in a hotel lobby or dining room ?

What temperature would the BD's A/C be designed for under these conditions?

What is designed into the A/C for energy conservation, in addition to the water recovery features described previously ?

Thank you

Please refer to Post No. 702 in this thread- or the Skyscraper Museum in New York exhibit about the BD -- in the diagram showing usages of the building, hotel in green, hotel apartments in blue, apartments in orange or yellow, offices, etc. what are the two levels in green, just under the second mechanical floors - looks like around level 36 or 37 ?

An older S O M diagram - still on Wikipedia, shows a Club on 142, and other spaces above that. In the later diagrams seen at the Skyscraper Museum exhibit, the space is shown as offices up to level 150's - what public spaces are in the current design of space allocation ?

It's coming on nicely. Let the builders take their time. No hurry and something close to perfection is being created.

So Imre, when are you going to get dressed up as one of the workers and give us some internal shots of the cladding and pics from the top!?!

Just kidding, loving your work!

It might be, but they'll be private.

Hi all.
Hey AltinD... I have had autocad on my system for years. I too would like to get those dwg files to peruse. Hopefully the next time you get bored you will put any and all you have together and email us all. PM me and you could start with me.

Also I am a computer history nut. IBM has wrote most of computer history. The Chinese buyer only acquired the PC end of their business. IBM continues to top the supercomputer list by a large margin - Blue Gene.

Back on topic - Great pics Imre and Syedaouf. And we want those plans Altin...

Have a good day all

Thank you
no matter what the outside ambient temperature, the inside is designed to have a 24degC +/- 3degC.
