Change thread title to 824.6 plus 1.2 = 825.8 for when the spire opening at the top is opened!

1.2m being the spire diameter at this location. I have not counted the hinges.

Closing in on the magical 888 number rapidly.

Decisions like this were not just taken on a whim and would have been long term intentions by the board.

Anyway I still plug for his favourite number
And what is his favourite number for those of us who don't know.

When would a newspaper ever become an official source?

Everthing up to when Emaar make the announcement which I assume will be January 4th 2010 everything else will be speculative and nothing more.

Come on man. The BMU should have battery and generator in it as secondary power sources.
You don't depend on a green line on a spool when you are 800 meters up in the sky.
You're right, we don't know that the reel system is the only power source. I speculated a while back that each BMU might use the "third rail" system like electric trains, and it is still possible that that is the primary power source with the green cord only being a backup source (in case the third rail shorts out or such). It is also possible that the cord is the primary source while a rail can be electrified should the cord get cut. Regardless of whether the power source is an electrified rail and/or power cord, it definitely makes sense to have on-board battery backup power. An on-board generator may be overkill, though an off-board generator sounds like a very good idea in case the building were to lose power.

My guess (just a hunch), having seen the the reel, is that there is no third-rail system. Such a system requires that the rail be electrically insulated from the building and precautions taken so that no worker could ever touch it while it's live. The cord seems like a much simpler and less expensive solution when combined with just enough battery power to reel in the basket and scoot back over to the BMU cave.

'쌍둥이'버즈두바이 삼성물산이 건설

삼성물산 건설부문이 아랍에미리트(UAE) 두바이에 '버즈두바이' 쌍둥이 빌딩을 짓는다. 버즈두바이 맞은 편에 버즈두바이와 높이·모양 등이 똑같은 초고층 건물이 들어서는 것이다.

29일 건설업계에 따르면 두바이 국영개발업체인 이마르(Emaar)사는 버즈두바이 쌍둥이 빌딩 건립 계획을 세우고 삼성물산 건설부문에 단독 시공을 요청했다.

버즈두바이는 사막꽃을 형상화한 건축물로 세계에서 가장 높다. 지난 3월 25일 마지막층인 160층(623m) 공사가 끝나 현재는 건물 위에 첨탑(건물 높이 포함 최고 800m 이상)을 세우는 공사가 진행되고 있다. 시행은 이마르사, 시공은 삼성물산 건설부문·베식스(벨기에)·아랍텍(두바이) 3개사가 맡았다.

이마르사는 버즈두바이 공사를 성공적으로 이끈 삼성물산 건설부문의 초고층 시공 기술과 관리 방식 등에 만족, 버즈두바이 쌍둥이 빌딩의 단독 시공 계약을 제안한 것으로 알려졌다.

버즈두바이 쌍둥이 빌딩의 총 공사비는 버즈두바이(약 1조원)와 비슷한 1조1000억∼1조2000억원선이다.

이마르사와 삼성물산 건설부문은 오는 연말쯤 버즈두바이 쌍둥이 빌딩 시공에 대한 양해각서(MOU)를 체결할 계획이다. 당초 양사는 다음달 MOU를 체결할 예정이었으나 버즈두바이 실내공사와 조경공사 등이 마무리되는 올 연말로 시기를 늦췄다.

업계 한 관계자는 "삼성물산이 중동 전역에서 버즈두바이 시공 효과를 톡톡히 보고 있다"며 "초고층 빌딩 건립을 준비하고 있는 개발회사들이 잇따라 삼성에 시공 및 기술 검토을 의뢰하고 있다"고 말했다.
