Here's a quick info about the cranes, coming from the german Liebherr company...

Quote:
Four Liebherr tower cranes building the tallest building in the world in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

Liebherr tower cranes help to building the Kingdom Tower
Liebherr 357 HC-L luffing jib crane at approx. 1,000 m building height
Effective crane planning by Liebherr Tower Crane Solutions
The very first building over 1,000 metres in height – the Kingdom Tower in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Liebherr was awarded the order to supply four HC-L series tower cranes for the project. Current plans call for three 280 HC-L luffing jib cranes and one 357 HC-L model to be used. The experts at Liebherr Tower Crane Solutions are providing support to the contractor to ensure economical crane planning.
And here's the link:

Ah, so in Saudi developers and contractors would only ever share information with the public on iconic projects if they 'have to' or 'need to' as opposed to just wanting to as is the case in many other countries.

Thanks for clearing that up...boys, back to arguing whether this thing has grown one or two metres today!!!

Well, you don't need a big budget to promote the biggest building in the world. That comes on it's own.

The point is simple: In this region they don't .... not that they really have to.

But it would be nice if they did given that they are only building the tallest building in the world...

Maybe the pump thought 'I have some spare time before the next pour so why not make some extra cash and build a parking over there?'
