I meant , they will reach the 100 panels/day soon , but if they working with more claddings team , might be more but 3 months not enough.

I think they will be working with full capacity after the Ramadan (mid-end of October) after we can calculate better.
Till 1st of September the break time (12:30-15:00) and after 1 month Ramadan+1week Eid , so will be faster from end of October.

Not very useful post, but well, i just realised on your diagram cul that they officially only have about 15 concrete floors to work on before steel... This is just amazing...
The pace they achieved is mindblowing...

By the way, thank you all for sharing information, taking pictures, etc. It has been one of the most exiting internet site to surf on for month...

The expansion will only be what the DPM will 'Give'...which is probably less than 1mm.
oh i mean the building expansion joints in between the tower and the podium/carpark.... sorry :P and also how did the joints between tower pileraft with the surrounding thinner pileraft?

^yes i concur.maybe emaar might have a "climb" or dedicate an upper floor to vip deck. most tall towers around the world that already have a dedicated ob deck also have a smaller higher deck or climb ride for extra $$$.
im sure the general public would pay extra to climb 20-30 floors to be highest pubic view in world.
but looking at elevation, you ave lev124 ob deck which is 442m high which also has outdoor area.the only other floors you could get puiblic too fairly easy would be the communication levels on-156-160.which are up about 600m/2000ft. that would be cool enough.
or maybe the highest occupied floor at tier 23/701m. the maintenance guys on this tower are going to be very fit
