Can't agree on that at all, between 1000m and 1100m lies a big difference to me. I mean, that is 10% we talk about, that is like the difference between shenzhen ping an and suzhou century plaza, and they have a visible height difference by having a similar design. Also besides looking taller, statistically it makes a huge difference by how far the new world's tallest is raised from the previous one. It might also change the approach from new world's tallest contestants, we saw quite a few visionary proposals over 1000m, but most of them were under 1100m, with a taller height that might change, since anything smaller loses this tad bit of prestige.

Thanks for the heads up.

I knew Doka had the ACS contact, but didn't know they are providing the whole solution for KT. If I recall Meva was contacted by Samsung/Turner for the table forms, which was a crane independent system and allowed for 3 day cycles. Is the Doka floor system capable of such cycle times?

I doubt it. We are presently stretching technology to the limits with the new tall buildings. In addition the economics certainly don't dictate taller buildings, they are a showpiece and not financially viable. So much of the total floor space especially on the lower floors is taken up by the core that in many cases the rentable space isn't even 50% of the entire space on a floor.
