I can not wait to see the first cladding on KT.
Does anybody know the planning for the cladding?


Anyway: good to see KT growing again !

Still too early for cladding, may be end of 2018 as earliest expectation

I remember BK did not start cladding until the tower is already above 500 m high

Cladding too late is harmful to concrete,particularly in hot and dusty areas.

I'd be delighted to learn the amount of such contract! I can scarcely imagine, but it has to be a 6-digit ($) figure. Anybody can calculate the cost of high quality curtain wall? It's roughly 225,000 mē for the entire tower (the whole external surface).

So I'm assuming it's back up and running. I am very curious as to why it slowed down through the last month or so.

How Perkins+Will's Sail Tower Creatively Overcomes Sun and Wind


Quote:
Skyscrapers aren't designed in a vacuum — the local geography and weather play a pivotal role in how buildings are crafted. This is never more true than in the unforgiving desert landscape of Jeddah. The sun beats down on Saudi Arabia's second largest city with unrelenting intensity, so architects have an extra challenge on their hands when presented with the task of designing a practical and liveable building. In creating a 64-storey tower overlooking the Red Sea, the team at Perkins+Will has proven experience resolving the issues presented by the local environment.

P&W guys, please note: it's absolutely weird to make tower renders flared at the top. It is so unnatural! No camera normally takes pictures with such an ugly geometry.
