Rise! from now on the updates will be even more interesting and we surely will be seeing stuff even when parts are blocked by the fence, it is now tall enough for it to not matter that much anymore.

No, its for temporary access to build the wing core wall auto self climbing (ACS) jump form. Anyone know what Doka ACS system SBG are using since its all 4.0m jumps instead of Burj Khalifa's 3.7m jumps? I would assume the same?

Looks like there are hundred of formwork panels, and first walls are already set.

In a few days it might rise!

The developer, strangely enough, doesn't put any picture updates on their website.

Hi Shrubit.

Not sure what will be used here but the Doka climbing form used on the BK was capable of jumping 4.00 meters. Although most of the pouring steps were 3.20, 3.50, and 3.70 - there were some at 2.00, 3.60, and 4.00.

The only taller pour was 5.25 and that was the initial forms, not the climbing ones.


Ray.
