The glass is the same throughout the tower.
I thought the glass on the podium levels were installed and supplied by the original cladding contractor (something to do with Emaar being obliged to uphold their original contract for a certain portion). The tower levels are bieng installed by the new cladding supplier. Please correct me if I am wrong on this....

The point is that the glass it's the same throughout the tower and the visible differences are just optical ilusions.

I think that they are already at the last level now 155 mezzanine. I was looking at this Imres pic and a draw a few lines. Seems ok to me. What do you guys think?

think level 155 is completed and they started with 156 now. you can see that the formwork is definitely higher than 155

Yeah, I think definitly L155M under construction now. That would be 586m on top. I hope formwork will be down by the end of the month.

Even now with such a small amount of the tower covered, it looks absolutely stunning! I can't wait to see the entire thing cladded, it'll be simply surreal!

Why the facade is stopped three or more floors before the first and the second mechanical floor, also in the two last levels from the wings??

When will they start with the mechanicals floor's facade??

This is due to the noise and vibration and dust created in the mechanical sectors at present, you must remember there's still a lot of concrete being pumped.

I find it strange that two floors are counted as one (155 and 155 mezzanine), while there are single floors that are counted as two...

Hi all.

Picasa - Ingmar Wilhelm - 07 10 22





Nice shots as always Imre - good to see your back.

Nice shots from you as well Malec - I am another who thinks it should be OK to say that - Lets not start overmoderating like over at SSP.

Enjoy.

^yes the Burj Dubai floor network is very complicated. some floors are missed while others have mezzanines. Above 156 there are 9 floors with lev160 quoted as 160, 160mezz 1, 160 mezz 2, 160 mezz 3. thus 4 floors but same floor number. then you have about 30 floors above this which arent even counted because there not habitable.

It's going to illuminate really well when the glass fully covers the building.

Awesome night shots! Are there any good descriptions and or images of the night lighting of the BD once it is complete?

I've been reading the Freedom Tower thread a pinch, and it sounds like there is an extensive strategy for a brilliant lighting program there. Got me thinking about this one!

Culwulla, what do you mean by not habitable floors? what makes a floor habitable and what makes one not??
There's still a floor and a celing and windows around you, isn't that habitable?

For the floors that they are just going to fill up with machinery, they don't add a lot of the finishings that they would on habitable floors (I would imagine insulation, consumer level electrical wiring, etc). Technically if a bum could somehow manage to sneak up there with some old newspaper and packing blankets, he could "habitate" in a mechanical floor, but it certainly wouldn't be habitable in the classical sense of the word.
