Anyone know of any videos of tower cranes being raised or lowered/disassembled? It would be interesting to see how it's done.

Here is the levels to the top of tier 17.

Used another of Imre's great shots - Thank you Imre.



1 more 6.4 m. column for the next level and we have 630.5 m. - the tallest structure on Earth ! Should only be a few days away...

Look back a few pages. OTR made a crane disassembly thing from the 705 m. ver. one I posted. Looks like it should be close to how they will do it.

Estimate

Any idea of what the current height is? Has it surpassed North Dakota's world's tallest tower?

just go back a couple of posts and you will see actual photos of burj dubai.
futy posted some explanations and you will see how tall it is. Its 624m atm . so 5 more metres to equal dakota most. the next steel section will be 6m, so it will then be 630m tall, which is taller then dakota mast.

Usually I'm not someone to be impatient about pictures since we are so lucky to get them all the time, but I am DYING to see the mech cladding. That's been the biggest anticipation for me for months now. I have to go to bed but I'll be hoping to see it when I get up

19th March Update

Not the best angle for the mechanical floor cladding but a starter.

We don't do time changing here, so it was still 2 AM when you posted that.

BTW, I saw the mech cladding also and as you can see from the pics OTR posted, the glass is at the same color as the rest, so no darker as it was first reported.
