CULLWULLA... tier 14 shudnt have 2 indentations on both sides, and the steel section is misaligned with the base... to correct this simply move all the steel section so that so that it lines up with the right side of the core insted of the left =)

well going from latest stuff.
1.160 or which there are 4 of them. approx 624m high.
2.155mezz is last concrete floor. or 586m.
3.yes.from lev156-160 x(4). or approx 8 levels.
But the floors above 155 don't really count as "habitable" floors though, right? They're not office/hotel/residential.

This is a little off the subject(concerning Dubai though) this is funny.
Is my screen or the word(FU*KER) is typed in one of the paragraphs of wikipedia's website on Dubai.


Scroll down to where it says History and look at the first word!!!!!!!!!!!!!


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubai


What's going on wikipedia? I always check their website for reliable information.

They do a great description of Dubai but looool what's that all about.

You are spamming that link to every thread, Jus2007. It's better if you put it to your signature instead IMO.

ive attached a couple of plans from an old drawing for the mechanical floor for the burj dubai.
someone said theres no glass on the mechanical flr cladding, but there is glass same make up as the typical on the tower alternate withe SS cladding. there is a hollow pipe at each SS cladding. for level 17 &18 all SS pipes are just aesthetic features. for upper mechanical floors. the top and bottom SS pipes for upper floor are thicker and serve as tracks or rails for BMU the cleaning equipment.
notice that some transoms or horizontal frame for the cladding have slits or splitted. these are the vents.

Thanks dude.


I just realised I was wrong in making my judgement, complete core configuration is actually T15 at L152, not at L148, hence I make the mistake.


What I'm am trying to say is that L152 will have a core setback no matter if the concrete section is extended or not. The 8 stories Tier will be one of the completed core shape (The core shape which look like a 3 semi-circle forming adjacent to one another by 60 deg angle, if don't understand imagine the shape of club in poker card)



No matter what L159 as the last completed floor might be possible, there was this article that came out 3 weeks after it surpassed T101 where official mentioned that there is approx. 80m of concrete more to go. At that time BD height was already like 520m+, hence the concrete could just surpassed 600m barrier.


604.9m would be my best estimate, lets see how it goes.

Dont need to. That picture was taken from a website off learning off how to repair cracks. That crack was an asthetic crack caused by rapid shrinking off the concrete. It wasnt a structural one.

And the picture was taken in a basement off an American home, so dont worry my friend. The Burj is all right and is alive and kicking ass!!

Cheers

That is illigal you know... Its stupid off not paying the money as you should do.

Not paying for the product equels stealing and is downright stupid thing to do.

By downloading this cracked stuff, you undermine the people who work their ass off by making these miracles off software and by stealing products away from them you help to make them bankrupt and then they cant make anymore off these programs so please dont download software you have to pay for...
