Second steel floor looks like halfdone And the other crane has selfclimbing module now, they will probably use both cranes to speed up the construction.

hopefully

Nakheel will play a key role in the first ever TDIM exhibition with the largest stand in the company’s history, which is approximately the same size as three Olympic swimming pools. A number of new developments will be revealed in exciting shows talking place in two large domes situated within the stand. Nakheel will also unveil a 13 metre-long scale model of Dubai with an updated show, detailing the role the waterfront has played in the growth of Dubai and the major role Nakheel has played in this.

Manal Shaheen, Director, Sales, Marketing and Customer Services, said: “Nakheel is thrilled to play such a major role in the first ever TDIM exhibition. As the creator of some of the world’s most iconic developments, TDIM provides a perfect opportunity to showcase our most visionary projects, such as The Palm Jumeirah and The World, but also the exciting new waterfront projects that we are launching this month. The Nakheel stand is the largest that we have ever created in our history and will feature some truly spectacular attractions.”
