Yes indeed. I've noticed too. the lower cladding seems to be stopped also. I guess it's all because the ramadan. btw these pic were awesome and beautifull, specially the ones from the old town.
But good news: the lower protection panel finally it's gone!!! yessss, NOW we see some progress!! Think i'm about to cry

No i really do doubt that .... it makes no sense actually, with todays media sources and the "world is one big village" we often hear of nowadays i belive the Burj Dubai today is well known, so is Dubai as a city to alot more people that those two towers were..... im sure many many americans that were struggling through the depression couldnt give a flick about tall towers going up in their country let alone european, asian and arican nations.

when the bricks are laid , a certain type of aggregate is used to fill in the gaps between the bricks and it solidifies as the water is gruadually sprinkled on top

30th September Update

Still two cranes although both nearing maximum base limit and right hand crane has something going on at base under the canopy.
No steelwork storage.
Large hoist of forming loaded down this morning.

Assume you are talking about the lake floor, where there are no bricks and no sprinkled water and no filling gaps.

The hexagonal concrete slabs are each about 25cm thick and then covered with a mastick covering (green coloured on one side and tar on the side facing down) on top of the slabs.

On average although it varies around the lake, I would say just over 2.5metres, although there are deeper points further out in the lake where I would guess were for the fountain mechanisms.

The scale of construction in Dubai is like nothing the world has ever seen. This is amzing! I'm loving all the pic updates, cladding looks great.

People are talking about a total depth of 250cm, but there are also rumors that it might go as deep as 267cm!!! Emaar is still not revealing the final depth, however it is not likely to be the deepest lake in the world.

I do belive that somewhere around 253cm is not impossible at all, but over 260cm....thats madness!

If I take a plunge in the canal next to my block here in Holland I bet I'm going to sink deeper than 300cm... madness!
