Hi all.

Nice vid Gerald.

I wonder if the platforms for the BMU's are not onsite yet ? Either that or they figure absailing is better/faster for the initial cleaning ?

I know the word is the upper tiers will be absail cleaned on a permanent basis but surely there will be a platform down on tier 13 - where the vid is shot.

Nice shots Imre.

This thing looks so huge when the weather is clear - allowing long distance shots. It just towers over the other buildings (and the rest of the world in a sense).

Emaar - are you listening ?!?!
1 - I want free internal site visits for Imre, Gerald, Desert, 234, Altin, and any others I have forgotton (my apologies) to start immediately !
2 - I want a complete set of prints/drawings, minutes from all internal meetings, all schedules, and any revisions to the above forwarded to me immediately !!
3 - I want any and all construction pics starting from the first survey stake put into the sand !!
These requests are legit - c'mon, screw the secrecy .....


I know it pissed off Emaar to no end all the info that was "acquired" years ago but it sure gave me something to look through, break down, and post about (no - I didn't "acquire it - just got it secondhand). I also know the internal site visits were stopped because of the basejumpers but some of Imre's photo spreads from inside were the best we've had. So many shots of internal works to view and post on ...

I was wondering why certain chunks of BD were appearing darker than the rest of the building from afar and then I realized that it was cleaned glass. They're really hauling ass on it.

Burj Dubai interactive visitor tour revealed

Details were announced on Tuesday of the interactive journey on offer to visitors to Burj Dubai, the world's tallest building, which is due to open in December.

The At The Top of the World experience will include travelling by lift at a speed of 10 metres per second to the observatory deck on Level 124 which will take about 60 seconds.

When the doors slide open, guests will be welcomed with floor-to-ceiling glass providing unobstructed 360 degree views. Visitors can also adventure outside onto the open-air deck to peer into the distance or down to the familiar streets below, Burj Dubai bosses revealed in a statement.

Special telescopes will provide virtual time-travel visions of the scenes beyond and below, allowing guests to see them in the close-up real-time not only the spectacular views of Dubai but also its past and future.

Thomas Dempsey, general manager, Burj Dubai, said the At The Top journey "will be a never-before experience for visitors".

He added: "The entire journey - starting from the welcome lobby at The Dubai Mall through a 65-metre travelator to the vertical travel in a double-deck elevator to finally watching the world uninterrupted from Level 124 - is educational, inspirational, compelling and thoroughly fulfilling."

While a typical At The Top journey can be completed in 45 minutes, several other interactive features including 'Burj Dubai Among the Greats,' 'Burj Your City', 'Tallest Among the Tall', and 'Dubai Then and Now' can also be included.

Abdulla Lahej, executive director, Dubai Project Management, Emaar Properties, added: "With the At The Top experience, we are celebrating Burj Dubai's iconic status and providing the world an opportunity to partake in this celebration."

I've been looking into the safety aspects of this building and am I correct in saying there is a fan system to push smoke down stairs? Hope its not oxygenated air!
