VanHenrik

Some stuff on the Burj "out of plumb" for your info about dispacement from verticality and motion of the structure.

What makes interesting reading are the words in red font in item 1.2.2 "A movement of 150mm is possible at (7??M) being the top of the concrete???????????????

Is the 1K high building going to happen?

I predict it will top off somewhere between 825 and 850 meters ... several levels higher than planned "for good measure."

The tower is looking good. When all the glass cladding is in place, I think this handsome building will resemble a crystal soaring into space. Congratulations to Dubai!

Did I miss an official announcement on the final height, or are we talking speculative 818m?

You know very well this is pure BS ... since you came up with it.

BTW, as of today:

- Both cranes have been extended.
- DOKA formwork is up on the 154th floor, on the North side

and also:

- There is just a very small amount of steel available in Eversendai's workshop in Dubai (and Sharjah).
- A bulk cargo is on the way from Korea. It should have been alreay here, but the loading it has been postponed twice.

So when is the steel section going up?
