The original wireframe for those animations came from me in September last year which I uploaded for others to play with.
I used the wireframe from STR who was the original designer of those wireframe models and should be properly accredited as such.
Although he and I never got on personally...he is the one who should be accredited with 95% of the hard work in creating these 3D models.

Give him a break, he's Swedish.

But, if I understand you right, Henrik, then yeah, it sounds like that's the entirety of the cladding workforce. That'd make, what, five teams?

Sky: thanks for the infos !

Alloy: I think that makes nine teams: there were three around level 19 onward, one for each side. There are apparently three news around level 6, although two are on the same side since the third side is not finished setting. And now three above these two heights.

Still, that's my 'wild' guess.

What surprises me here is that the three rail heights differ on each wing there. So maybe you're right, that would starts three new vertical sections, and they all will be expanded to the other wings.

So now to recapitulate we will soon have:
around l6 on: 2 sides cladded
around l19 on: 3 sides cladded
around l4x on: 1 wing cladded (wing B)
around l5x on: 1 wing cladded (wing C)
around l6x on: 1 wing cladded (wing A)

Please correct me if you disagree,

Vincent.

Can someone tell me about the steel company doning the top portion of BD??? Is it Eversendai, cause I know that they bid for the project?

--> Also, please I heard that the Swiss company that did the cladding went bankrupt because it deleivered ALL the cladding to Dubai and that didnt meet specifications for the tower. Is it true?

THANKS! XOXO
