A Belgian company involved in the construction of the BD, Basix, invited the Belgian national television into the building:

I have a video on top of the steel structure!

The Belgium Television had the permission to go on top with some of the BelgiŽn engineers (of the firm BESIX) also from Flandres.

here the link:
I must warn you! You have to scroll way to the end of the video!
the clip begin on minute 29! You can watch only when the video is fully loadid!
http://www.canvas.be/extra/html/page...=320&width=520

You can see it also on full screen (symbol beside volume on the right)!

A little patience will be necessary!

March 04 Update

5th Floor steel going up fast today (pics from this afternoon)

Also looks like the jacking guide for the spire is now taking shape in the centre of the two horizontal bracings.

Is that a set back at the 5th going by the curved bracing in place??????????????

Very fast!

Looks like they are really speeding up, getting used to the construction procedures.

Emaar Announcement

BEHIND SCHEDULE: Alabbar said construction of the Burj Dubai had been delayed by four months.
Emaar Properties' Burj Dubai is four months behind schedule and may now not be finished by the end of this year as originally planned, it has been revealed.

Emaar Chairman Mohamed Alabbar said on Tuesday the world's tallest structure would not be finished on time, without giving further details as to the reason for the delay.

"We are about four months late," Alabbar told reporters.
Emaar said last month construction on the tower had been stepped up to meet an "accelerated schedule", without giving further details.

An Emaar official said in July the Burj Dubai would open sometime before Christmas this year, which means the tower may not now be finished until spring 2009.

Work on the Burj Dubai was delayed in November when around 40,000 labourers employed by Arabtec, one of the construction companies working on the project, went on strike for a week over pay and conditions.

Arabtec Executive Director Tom Berry said at the time the strikes could cause the company miss completion dates for some of its key projects in Dubai.

The Burj Dubai currently stands at just over 600 metres, over 90 metres higher than the world's tallest building, Taiwan's Taipei 101, and over 40 metres higher than the world's tallest free-standing structure, Toronto's CN Tower.

The only structure now left for the Burj to overtake is the KVLY/KTHI television mast in Blanchard, US, which measures 628.8 metres.

The Burj Dubai will not be officially recognised as the world's tallest structure until it is completed.

Emaar has remained tight lipped over the final height, but it is rumoured to be between 700 and 1,000 metres.

Local media reports last year said the final height would be 818 metres, citing architects drawings posted on the internet.

next section will reach 624m or roof of inhabitable part of tower.or where the lifts for the tower stop.
(add 15.75m for height above slab).

CUl, going by your plan, it is about this stage that they start to make provisions for vthe spire entry.

Is that the spire guides at the centre of the horizontals, and if thats the case it wount be a setback as we would expect the other half of the guide to be formed by other steel?

Not you, but the article you posted.

That's why when I'm bashing something written in a article posted by a member, I remove the member's name from the quote.

Why does the spire go so deep down into the structure? sure it is for strenght and fixing it properly but that seems an awful lot.

How is the new cladding part going OTR? that one above (the 4th?) mecchanical floor, have they allready installed many?
