Guys I know I may sound retarded right now but don't hate me. What is a floor jump? isn't it when they jump a floor and move on to the next?

A floor jump is when they lift up the formworks after they poured a floor.

I've calculated that in order for them to reach their desired completion date, they need to complete about 1.7 floors a week. I don't think they are going that fast.

Does anyone know how fast Burj Dubai was rising at this stage of construction - around floor 30? Maybe... Fury would know?

It started at 1 floor per week but the taller and thiner it got the faster it was. At one point there were building a floor ever 2-3 days.

In the future they will be able to complete a floor in 2-3 days.

Generic supertall 350m - 100 fl
Burj Khalifa 820 m - 160 fl
Jeddah Tower 1100 m - 160 fl
In future: 1800 m - 150 fl
And 4850 m - 120 fl
"Nice" tendency, like a tele-radio-spire with little habitate garage

I remember that, but every time they got to the Mechanical Floors it was very slow.

Its not 36 yet. But it will be today or tomorrow.

Looks like they slowed down the wings once again. its been too long since the last wing jump.
