Bulgarian Software to Control World's Highest Building

I'm not sure if this has been posted here or not, I went back 4 pages and didnt see any post about it. If this is a dupo, im sorry about it.

http://international.ibox.bg/
Bulgarian software for controlling state property and asset Facility Management Center could be implanted in the highest building in the world - Burj, Dubai, informed from Center Mine, the company that integrates the program.

The product was presented in an exhibition in Dubai this month.

The Bulgarian software product improves the managing of buildings and helps for optimizing the expenses for electricity, communication, repairs, sanitation and others.

According to international research with entering of such product, the exploitation drain of the building could reduce with 35%, said Goran Milanov, executive director of Centre Mind.

Dubai transformation: Fast forward to 2012

I also just ran across this as well

Visitors will be spoilt for choice for top hotels: perhaps the Palazzo Versace in the Culture Village? Or visit the Armani hotel on the first 37 floors of the world's tallest building, the Burj Dubai?

vanhenrik's first photo on post 7129, courtesy of ImreSolt.

Great photo, probably the first I've seen that REALLY demonstrates just how monstrous this thing is now becoming. Gonna be quite the spectacle on completion.

Joobn, that picture of urs is great. Where was this taken from? In the other pics, i see no other high building close to that one. Perhaps from a plane or a helicopter?

Amazing the size of it all... can't wait to see it live...! Looks to me like Emaar can keep its promise and finish cladding not-so-far-off, if not on the original schuedule. If so then it's a huge accomplishment.

And I have to ask again: whatever happened to the cladding statiticians? I loved those posts

It is 'throne' though - not 'thrown'

The taller it gets the worse it looks, IMO. Looking at it I still wait to hear someone say 5..4..3..2..1 blast-off, and then watch it lift of into the heavens. Maybe I'll change my mind when it is fully clad but right now it looks to me like a building that should have been topped out about 100 feet down from where it is now.
