I read on the forum that it was forbidden to work during the night, because of the noise

The cladding is coming along nicely. When this thing it topped out the cladding will shoot up in no time. The cladding makes the tower look wider and gives it more depth IMO.

I have nothing important to say, but have been lurking every day this summer

Just want to thank IMRE (not the first time he hears that) for the updates, because they gave me the most awesome dream last night
I was on top of the Burj, and it was soooooo real, the whole surrounding and everything was just like reality (except for the Empire state building standing next to the tower, and looking small)
so I can brag about being first of you guys to have "been" there hehe

planning a trip there with the misses
gonna see it all, all the megaprojects but first of all the BURJ ( and imre next to it sweating, fighting the moist on the lens)

Soon we will see the steel section rise, that will be a new charter, different methods, speed and anticipation

yeye I am just ranting, but wanted to thank you all to make this thread inmissible in my daily routine.

go Burj

The original is the second to last pic in post #6084. I made it smaller and cropped it because it was easier to demonstrate my point that way.

^ It's 20 reasons why not to MOVE to Dubai. And most people know that moving there isn't a very good idea. Going there for vacation is a different story.

The sound won't travel down 1,800' so easily I'd imagine.
