I've wondered about this too. My guess is they repaint the sections after they are removed from the bottom of the supports. If a section is red, they paint it white, and if it's white, they paint it red. That would make it easier to tell that the new coat of paint is thick enough.

Or it could be that they paint a section white, then paint it red the next time, then sand blast all the paint off and start over with white. This is just speculation on my part.

If you look at the close-up photos, you will see that the lower sections of the main supports are faded, perhaps even rusty.

Hate to burst your bubble man but Altin's photos show the mech cladding appears to not have started, and if it had, I'm sure Imre would've gotten close-ups of that.

Only 3 years? Whoa! That's like 2x faster than the BurjD! What's the final (roof) height and floorcount of the Al Burj?

I think we should open a new thread for the Al Burj! Is this the approved design? Again, what's the floorcount and roof/spire height?
