According to the Burj Dubai official site, the building will have three manned cleaning cradles that will clean the entire façade down to the 7th floor. They say it should take 3 to 4 months to clean the entire building.

Click "Facts & figures", the "Façade Maintenence," and hover over "Façade fact."

Wow. By the time they're done cleaning it, it'll already be dirty at the part where they started.

At least that's what "Revision 7" plans show.

If there has been another revision after, (on the concrete part of the building) that we don't know of, that's a different matter ...

diagram number 1001.lol
getting closer.
you can see a number of things in this diagram.
*there is approx 20 floors above official floors, thus the 183fl quoted previously.
* the spire is 142m in length,-starts way down at tier20B. It has a 2.1m dia, then 1.5m and reduces to 1.2m at top.

YES!! I will win the BD height guess !!

Nice diagram Cull. Real respectable looking SSC brother!

Yes it will be frustrating for them but they know once the mech floors are done they will have the WTB
I think there are 1-3 Mech floors to be built in this section.

Cheers

136-138 are the mech floors and the guys are saying two weeks before it hits the mark of WTB. I thought it would happen before July, especially now that there are only 46 feet to go to get there, but everyone says not this month...Even if they are right it won't be as late as Aug-Sept like others have said.
