Hmmm... unless the work on the steel structure requires continuous work on these mech floors as it increases in height. That is to say, the tower wont stop growing during this period, it will simply mean work on these floors will continue inside?

What does MEP mean?

And Sky Tower, if you have information you want to share, stop being cryptic and acting like a child and just tell everyone. That, or keep it to yourself.

hehehe

jaja, Mechanical Floors

You can see the mechanical floors in the pictures in the previous pages every 30 or so floors. These can be recognised as being generally higher and with thicker reinforced concrete. These can also be seen as darker bands in all renders and models of the Burj Dubai.
