no that's why I wouldn't call it a tourism.

Yes because because foundation piles will be ready till august 2013, then bottom slab will be constructed which probably will be done till the end of the year. And when it's done the tower can literally start rising

I doubt they will be able to complete the piling by August, especially considering the month of Ramadan is in the way, and AFAIK Saudi Arabia practically shuts down during that period.

But even without the Ramadan, I still think it can't be done. There are hundreds of piles and it is actually a time consuming job to do them.

My prediction is late 2013 for the piling to be completed, and work on the raft to start, which means a Summer 2014 timetable for the main structure to start raising.

Not that late. I remembered august wrong, but they will still have over two months in 2013 to work on the slab. I'd add two months for curing and it probably can start rising in around february 2013.

On the other hand, I was told that this tower is going to have a huge "Slab on grade", and according to the "gantt-chart" I saw this after-noon, the works on this slab on grade will start by mid October, when deep piling and foundation works finish.

Wait, so when this tower will get completed and I would like to visit it, I won't have the chance to do so because of the country's visa guidelines? That sucks.

Yes, that is a real problem. The tower will be a symbol of modernity in a country that still (may never?) has some way to go to actually modernise, I am afraid.

Stil, it will be an amazing structure.
