the mechanical cladding has infill panel. its the panel to close out. @ every rimex panel they will have SS tube as features. for upper mechanical floor 2 of these SS tubes will serve as gondola tracks. so its not the same.

thats the infill panel. its the same as the lower and upper. the vents are concealed in the horizontal frames called transoms. only portion will have the vents not all.


the idea of infill panels or units is taken from ICC. it was done inorder to catch up the schedule of installtion. somebody said before they can actually install cladding simulataneosly in 5 different levels starting at each mech flrs.

It would be very disappointing if they didn't, IMHO.

I've been dying to see the mech cladding get up so I thought I'd add a few images of the Burj with the mech cladding on it :

Go to the following website:

www.imageshack.us and upload your picture from your computer. Once it's hosted, uncheck the "include details" and grab the code from "hotlink for forums (1)" and just put that code into your message and you're done!
