Whoo! Nice thread title change.

On the cladding speed, I don't think we're going to be seeing two floors per day for a while. They've been on it for more than two months, and so far they have eight floors done. With three teams working on different parts of the building, we could probably see close to two floors per day, though.

Aside from that, once the concrete tops out, they'll probably have a couple of weeks to catch up before the steel starts to rise. On the other hand, the steel should rise a lot faster, right?

Good shots as always, Imre! Thanks!

Edit: HAHAHA Nice Sky Tower. I assume he was talking about Imre's name, though. I believe it's pronounced "im-ray."

well ive been working on this for days now and its about as accurate as i can get with available info.
any experts out there that can see errors please let us know.
ive shown the 2.5 floors below grade which make up 14m of overall height which i dont think is included in official height?
Also the steel section has over 30 "landings" which range from 6.4m tall to 3m. thus the quotes of 200floors+. i can indicate each landing which will take it to appr 216 floors.
there are approx 164 floors if you count mezzanines.
the lifts stop at lev 162. then steel stair case to tier23/720 then ladder to tier27/768m. then spire as internal ladder to top.
cheers

I wonder how often this building will get struck by lightning. All the lightning that strikes Dubai will all be centered on Burj Dubai. That would be a cool picture if that were really the case.
