But then again, that could just be to keep the supports out of the way of the BMU's wheels, and/or add extra strength to support the BMU's weight.
If so spiderman may only get so far...

CNN Korea Report and Samsung highlight

CNN showed the burj and claimed that it "...will be the talllest building in the world". I did not know that Samsung is responsible for this project as well as the second tallest in the world, Taipei 101.

Probably this has been discussed before, but but but... how is this building going to be cleaned?! if the classic way (with those small hanging platforms and crazy dudes), how often will it be done, how long will it take to clean the whole facade, how many people will be necesarry to do the job, etc.?
If it's a fancy schmancy self-cleaning glass, how does it work and what company supplied it?
Meh... so basically any info relating to the cleaning of the Burj would be appreciated.

Cheers,
