Wait a minute, Aren't the steel section suppose to start at lvl 156 and above? Why does the concrete section finish at lvl 154 instead? What going on?

I think steel section starts already at L154 but it is poured in concrete untill 156. It has to be fixed well into the concrete section if they dont want it to fall down

So the fully steel structure will only become "exposed" at lvl 156 as stated in the original plan right?

Thanks so much Imre for your constant updates. You are a true star of this thread.

Love the close-ups of the cladding mounts.

Cheers

Thanks Imre, it's good to see they're starting a new set of windows above the mechanical floors.

I'm extremely appalled that Dubai doesn't have addresses, for a country of its wealth, I would imagine that they would be smart enough, if they don't clean up their act soon, nobody will relocate there.

Just imagine, the delivery men can't even find your office in a city of 2 million!!
