Yep. Next they'll hire a sign girl, and then swap her bikini for a burka.

They had a huge delay with the delivering of the panels. It was supposed to start a lot earlier

For the Burj khalifa, the selected supplier for the cladding went bankrupt, rather short before deliveries to Dubai should start.

So, they had to do new negotiations with the second-choice candidate, who finally got the order then.
Then at first, a test wall had to be made (and tested at site in Dubai), before panel manufactuirng could actually start.

So indeed, cladding at Burj Khalifa started too late. But much delay was caught up.

Really nice model. That's actually a good looking structure on its own.

Photo 10484, well, the name binladen will strike the fear in most Americans. When I hear that name, I only think of the 1 and I'm sure most westerners would agree.

Sure.
But "the 1" is no more, and we can not blame others with same name for what happened.

And there are now many, many more others that should be feared...


Back on topic: let's enjoy the construction of KT !

That there is one damn fine model you done, man! I wonder if the construction company has one like that - to use in their charts and presentations...

Oh my God yes..... that's the first thing that crossed my mind when i saw the picture. ......I read it like 10 times to make sure it really said BinLanden, but well i think that most be an usual name in the eastern world.

Anyway, great model renders.... one can see how amazing is the engineering of this mega construction.

So the founder of Saudi Binladin Group is Osama Bin Laden's father. What is ironic about that?
