I will leave the maths to to you Chris.

1st Floor steelwork first column installed December 6th 2007.
2nd Floor first column installed January 8th 2008.
3rd Floor first column installed January 31st 2008.

Getting faster and will probably get faster for the next few floors, but the damper etc, in addition to other facilities will have to be installed as the steelwork progresses as access will get limited to install the larger internal structures.

I didn't count exactly, but if I am right, almost 70 (67?) stories have already been cladded! I think that's enormous, but on the photos it looks as if it wasn't that much - actually this should be far over 300m of height - most skyscrapers would finish here but in this case it doesn't even mean half of the final height (although it should be about half of the cladding, since the building is getting smaller/thinner the higer it goes, which means less surface and therefore less cladding - I know this was easy to conclude )

-old town resi-
correct. ive chatted to an engineer who visited the mighty BurjD last week and he said the first steel floors will take a little time, due to connections to concrete segment and adjustment to new structiure. but you will see a big change in speed over next month when the structure becomes simpler.
cheers

Those bears must be huge, the size must be like the space craft out of independance day. Could they be from another planet. Lets face it if you came from another planet and ran a radar scan the Burj would stick out like a needle, so thats why the invasion of the giant bears has struck Dubai!

dont get me wrong, I LIKE THE BEAR!
but you guys should just make a new thread for them or something, seem a bit too enthusiastic in the last posts

topic time, was there any schedule for the cladding posted?? an if so, how are they following it? well?
because I was wandering when they will start the next section of cladding now that the third part has reached its installation rails and the fourth one is well on its way. It is surely running fast for the cladding teams

go imre, go bear, go cul and altin

I didn't know this tower had a damper... I trust you because you live there, but I had always been under the impression that the tapering design and triangular footprint made this tower stable enough in strong winds that a damper was not necessary. I've definitely never seen it in any plans... If someone could help explain this to me I would greatly appreciate it.

Are the top floors of the Burj Dubai going to be narrow? If so, can it still be usable?
