He reported that the workshop discussed the study on buildings rises system in the project to be commensurate with the requirements of the civil aviation authority, along with privacy and neighbourliness and also study design and planning orientations for each piece of integrity, as well as study parking system in terms of different vehicle types, as well as environmental study focused on the impact of the project on the sea and air and toward the Sun plus project and discuss the requirements of the relevant government agencies.

Return to engineer Jamal Abu Amara, he emphasized that the Secretariat only investor into account environmental aspects, particularly the project Lake.

Conditioning investor Jeddah secretariat also-according to Abu-Amara, hierarchy in construction on all project so mediates Tower project area, so the project appears to substandard given its importance not only Kingdom level, but at the international level as it made its elements of the world's tallest building which will increase the height of 1000 meters, showcasing a culturally milestone of Jeddah, where a complement to the global enterprise system located on the Red Sea coast.

UK City project is, within projects ordered by custodian; namely: economic city of King Abdullah and his city sports, and the King University of science and technology.

Answer the question if it is so stupid.

When there is a wildlife area, the effects of moving them out of thier natural habitat need to be taken into consideration. If there is a nearby river, lake, or underground aquifer, they need to be investigated before drilling equipment and pilings start. If there is an effect on the soil.... ah forget it. I'm trying to make a child understand simple things. The sand fleas won't get it either.

I guess just simply answering the question, then I read it and go AHHHH, now I understand! Is much more difficult than throwing an insult. This is my perception of your personality and you can't change that now.

Thanks.

As someone is is not an expert in environmental studies in a desert environment, that answer makes some sense. That is why this forum exists. So we can learn.

Imagine reading such a simple text like "What is there to evaluate" mistaken as an insult?
