Yes!

Next is 200 m.
I wonder what the actual "vertical speed" is at the moment, and if they will keep it.

I've been watching the construction of the Kingdom Tower and want to know the speed of construction! I remember that 3 weeks = 1st floor. So???

Just out of curiosity, how is the scaffolding able to move up like that? Is there a mechanism that moves it up like a large elevator or something similar ?

did you just compare building a house to construction of a skyscraper by specialist developer?


In my opinion the progress is slow so far, but there must be a good reason for that.

Keep in mind they are also constructing the largest and most complicated part of the building at this point. Base floors with larger floor area, more connections, etc., probably take a little longer. If every single floor we have so far took even one extra day, that's already approaching one month of extra building time so if something didn't go quite right, it's easy to be delayed.

I'm guessing that while there may be something "off", I also feel they are probably somewhat on schedule and are moving ahead as fast as they can with safety and logistics in mind. As the building gets higher, floors get smaller etc., they should be able to make up for some lost time hopefully. This project is paid for and is going ahead so really, nothing to be worried about, guys.
