hmm interesting

any more insight into this?


like why do the angles need to meet at the top. Wind resistant, centre of gravity?

I very much stand corrected if the spire is structurally important. In that case they will have to build it.

The spire aspect is very important to this design. You basically have three huge concrete cores supporting the entire building which lean into each other as the building nears its apex. This creates massive compressive strength.

Think of it as if you had 3 long, narrow concrete slabs in your garden. If you stood them up on their ends, leant them into each other and connected them you would create a very stable, self supporting structure.

I hope are smart enough to realise what

(a) an IPO is

(b) what it means for secrecy and such


and if you want to talk about real secrecy, think about Dubai. lol when they went bust the sheikh even stopped the press from printing negative stuff. Now thats totally fcuked up IMO.

All the guys at DB want to do its keep things under wraps. They have published their accounts and if ya want, go through them and use google.

The base used to be more deep...however as per the site engineers the base has been taken care of and soon the structure will start to appear...and people in this line understand soon does not means in few hours or day but in couple of months.....



Observation...

Work being done at a serious level...large number of labor present at the site .....

Will give you clear picture once I go in there with all details...


However as of now what I can say is.....

The project is for sure ON
