After the holy month of Ramadan and Eid Al Fitr the speed must increase

The exact date should be around 10th of July

I don't expect serious work capacity nowadys

Some fellaz here also thought it would. But it never does. Because there are serious reasons for that (which I pointed out at the beginning of construction). Now they believe me.

Jesus Christ! This is getting ridiculous, stop this nonsense. This forum is about construction not human rights violation plus who says the workers on this tower or any other tower aren't happy with what they got. You do know these workers live way better in the Gulf than their original home countries?!?! Right? and they keep on coming and coming back!

I always wonder, why the designers of it wanted to have so much headaches with the floor plans... There is a plenty of extra work, because every floor's plan for sloped towers is different from all the others. Different are the areas (sq. meterage), MEP infra, load schedules, air/light/water capacities etc. And then, every few floors the layouts should be changed completely, because on the higher floors you can no longer have too small areas of the same function. And they are taking all this pain for nothing in return: BK's tiered design is much more architectural, practical, safer and in many other ways more advantageous than JT's.
