If this is going to be true I bit it would be a very good plan by the government and it will change whole world..
That's true. Hope they will go on making laws more liberal and more equality.

On the Burj Khalifa project they constructed the core then jump-formed the floors around the core separately.
So I guess you're wondering when they will start constructing the floorplates around the core, like so (note second tier section up on the left):

http://www.burjdubaiskyscraper.com/2...june-24-04.jpg

So when are they going to start building these floors then?

O.k now i get it
Good question, also have no idea.
But it's funny, sometimes i have the deja-vu feeling witnessing the burj khalifa rising a second time. Same architect, same 3 wings form etc.

Would be so cool if mutes always choose to stay muted here, instead of voicing 100,001st time his personal "wow"! Why every extra thinks that his "wow" is unique in any way?

The reason for this was because there were setbacks in fine tuning the glass panels and glazing. It failed preliminary tests before it finally passed, following some modifications, and was ready for mass production and delivery. From what I can recall there were some leaks and the glazing wasn't providing the required heat shielding for the building or something.

First of all, the originally selected glass supplier went bankrupt just before start of deliveries to BD.
So, selection process had to be done again for a large part.

Remember that posting in a thread is a way to "follow" it so it shows up in your User CP. A lot of these short expressions might just be people who want to follow construction progress without getting involved in the current discussion of the thread.
