It's always like that on this thread! You love or hate Saudi Arabia this tower is getting built there! So I don't see how complaining about it will help in the matter. Stop spreading negativity people and let's focus on the construction instead of the location.

In other words, pretend we are at a dinner party - there are certain topics we should not get into - religion, politics... etc. Thanks for the job you did in cleaning things up here - it was getting to be posts consisting of fighting and uncivil comments.

So that's 2 floors per month. I seem to recall Burj Khalifa was rising at about a floor every 4-5 days. We could discuss reasons why the JT is taking longer to build floors.

It was almost at the same speed at this stage

when it reaches the much higher floors then comparisons would be really accurate

Good idea
I also have no reasonable explanation that works. So let's speculate...It's so much slower because it's much more concrete to pour and to dry? Or too few workers for this huge project?

One reason is that every jump they gotta change some parts of the form works.

Also... Just thought of something, I think when they reach the spire they will slow again because they have to constantly change form works.
