I never thought that a tower of more than a kilometer would be ever possible to be built...
It is amazing how soon the Burj Khalifa it's going to be replaced.

Binladen group is one the owners of the project & also the Main contractor .

But I hope it will not effect them .

It has never been a technical issue but an economical issue. Where there is money it is always possible to build higher.

I don't mean this in any kind of a negative way, but it does sort of amaze me that the world's tallest building is rising in a city that doesn't even have a supertall completed yet.
Good to see this still progressing well.

I don't expect it will have big consequences for KT construction.

What happened in Mecca was a very sad accident - which could have happened everywhere in the world - and off course it will be investigated thoroughly.

Learning points may result in additional safety measures, also at KT.

The Bloomberg article shows a way of reaction that may be typical for the Middle East or specifically SA. But that's just the way things go.
Bin Laden Group is big enough to survive this!

It is good news to be suspended for investigation and safety check.

you seem to misunderstood the whole thing..

Bin Laden Group (SBG) was suspended for running for new "governmental" projects until the case is viewed by the court.
and then it said that clearly that "this doesn't apply on the current projects the company is involved in"
on the other hand, this is a development which is planned, financed and executed 100% by the private sector.
