Just imagine almost 2 years from now until BD it's finished, telling over and over the same complains about VH. Will be exhausting! I suggest just IGNORE HIM. After all he does exactly the same with us since he doesn't shows any tiny reaction. He's not guilty of being the way he is...Bah, he IS , but this not a forum about psicology.
PS: see the bright side: now we r lacking of pics updates bcz ramadan, without VH I'll be bored to death!! Go VH, go!
Cheers

Damn! I always confuse Emirate and Israeli number...
I hope it would avoid 972 (sue me for antisemitism)!

that depends on what concrete they used and the amount of steel in the piles. For the steel I know that the max is 435 N/mm2 or 43.5 kg/mm2, for the concrete I guess somewhere near the 60 N/mm2 or 6kg/mm2, but it really depends on what concrete they used

The answer is out there somewhere. You might want to try digging around and seeing if you can find it. You will have to use correct spelling (seriously...I'm not trying to bust your nuts, but you can't search for information with the wrong spelling) so you'll want to use a spell checker.

Re: a couple of the above posts ..

Anyone worried about the foundation of the structure, it consists of 192 piles constructed to depths of more than 50 meters, bound together by a 3.7 meter thick concrete raft across 8,000 square metres, and encompasses the tower’s entire footprint. The total concrete poured into the foundation (over 45,000 cubic meters) weighs more than 110,000 tons.

As mentioned by some of the more learned posters that is plenty enough for this project.

What more could the put under there? It looks like enough to me. Unless you think they should be deeper.
