Hi, I was looking today for some piles load test equipment and this is what a came across. I think those pics have never been posted here, or at least I don't have them in the package of early construction shots Fury gave me.

Hi Burj.

I can't seem to get an answer to that question from anyone. I'm pretty sure 'The Club' is completed though.

Hi Pat.

All 4 are new to me.
I only have a hundred shots from this era of the BK construction (2004) that 3 of the shots are from.
A couple people have posted they would try to get more that they could get access to - but nothing materialised.

Thanks for taking the time to post these Pat ! The effort is appreciated.


Ray.

Come March 31st and Burj Khalifa will be blacked out...

Quote:
By Sneha May Francis | Published Sunday, March 18, 2012

And like last year, this year too, the world’s tallest building – the Burj Khalifa, will be blacked out, kick-starting a candle-lit Earth Hour walk from the Burj Plaza towards Burj Park.

Of course I knew you wouldn't forget. He went back home and is working for the AL capital's Mayor's office now.. Actually he was back in town some months back and did give me a call.

I should have bugged him before when he talked about the pics.

i don't understand your concerns, Burj Khalifa is the tallest structure in the world, it has a special place in this forum and in the SCC community, it deserves such active thread as it has now... and to sum up, the whole downtown isn't built yet so its still actual

if you have problem with it, just ignore it
