Awesome. The time-lapse without all those transitions. Very cool. Hope to see another one for the entire construction process when the tower is complete. Thanks ZZ-II.

i hope its right thus far. please correct if wrong.

They could make a fortune by allowing people to climb to the top. Imagine the feeling of standing on top of the pinnacle with the aircraft beacons, being able to look down on all sides at once.

I would literally pay hundreds.

What floor/where/how heavy will the counterweight be? Will it be a giant steel ball? Will it be open to the public like Taipei101?

Cheers

if they are keeping the two cranes to speed up production makes sense
but isnt there a reasonable mark fro a maximum distance a crane can spam up before being bolted to something.
i mean looking at those cranes the damn high from the building allready
and plus at that height im sure theres some turbulence/gusts etc.

Something tells me we're already seeing the "planned construction crane". The base/support of the currently-elevated one exactly matches that in the virtual diagram posted previously, save for the fact that it's not bolted right to the top of the concrete structure, but a few floors down.

I'm sure they don't see it as life-or-death to get those last few concrete floorings completed where it is, as they can easily be finished off with lift buckets when the time comes.

As the steel rises, they can bolt onto it...Similar in fashion to a ground-based tower crane...

A while back someone posted those plans for the steel section of burj that included details of the two tower cranes that will climb with the steel....

It even listed climbing details from memory and model numbers which were 380 and 440D's... the cranes that are there now.. they can climb 16 sections before bracing is required...
