yes i think so too, people will talk about the building when the height is unclear and they can build up a hype for the building when they keep it secret

I think Azerbaijan tower won't ever be built .. how will this building be in a country which has a GPA of only 70 billions $ and a population of almost 10 millions !! this is no a good GPA at least !!! all of this maybe a big lie

If you go by this logic the U.S. could build 100 Kingdom Towers without without wasting a breath.

The foundations are in fully progress !



Now. The work is started on the site. Final design of deep foundation released and the execution of pilot concrete piles is in progress in order to be tested by applying a load of 7500 ton on one pile!

Deep foundations used there is 2 types:

1.Concrete piles with diameter of 1500 mm & depth = 45 m
2.Concrete barrettes 2800 x 1200 mm & depth = 85 - 120 m


Polymer shall be used as a drilling fluid to support the excavation while drilling these piles/barrettes.

HUTA Foundations works limited company - is the deep foundations contractor there as a subcontractor from the main contractor SBG (Saudi Binladin Group).

as far as I know, these tests were done around the new year's time, when Pr AL-Waleed announced the project's execution
and that when I hinted that HUTA is working on the site.
any way great find Buyckske Ruben

this naif shot shows some large object, but that also could be just tanks with the polymer:
