Not just that, their panels miserably FAILED the tests, which probably was the reason why they went under. So much for "Swiss precision"

Hey guys i've found another imo very interesting website from and for "engineering enthusiasts".
Much information about the whole kingdom tower project i think wasn't postet before.
It's much to long to quote so i've postet only the link.
Enjoy it, perhaps some open questions will be more clearer after reading.

Hi, do you have that diagram that shows the layout of Kingdom Tower in a higher resolution that shows all the measurements? If I zoom in on the one you posted it get's all blurry. I'm trying to draw this up in Revit.

Thanks,
Bert

Don't forget that the tower is still at its almost 4% of its highet

You'll get the highest resolution today's technology can ever get but, only patience is required

If you're in the construction industry, you'll know that Bin Ladin is one of the largest and well respected middle east construction and property development groups. Only Westerners who have no clue mainly associate the name with Bin Ladin's son...

I would like to draw this up in Revit but can't find the measurements of the foundation anywhere, I did find a drawing in Post No 4157 (page 208) in a previous post but when I zoom in it gets all blurry and I can't read the measurements.

The foundations are approx. 200 ft (61m) deep.
