You could also measure the angle from a certain distance from the bottom to the top. Then if you know the distance to the core and the angle you can easly calculate the height. Simple trigonometry

Actually the manmade structure that is firmly ground based and is furthest from the centre of the Earth is Whymper Hut, on Chimborazo in Ecuador, which is 6,383.13 km from the centre.

But we all know what you meant, I think!!

I think what Firoz was asking was how they measure the deviation of verticality and horizontal movement from the X, Y and Z axis, in particular movement outwith the engineering tollerances.

And as Skymyhusband put it GPS is the answer, not simple trigonometry.

How many weeks before the BD surpasses the KVLY/KTHI TV Mast in the U.S?

So then it will only need to pass the Warsaw Radio Mast to be the tallest structure ever created!

Pretty damn tall.

as far as i know the mess/grill cant be seen outside. it's beyond the cladding. the horizontal frames of the active mech cladding has vents or slots to allow ventilation in some portion only. there two types of mechanical floor cladding. Type 8 without slots and type 9 with slots.

With the recent earthquakes around the world and with the one in the UAE (minor) do you think the building will be ok in such greater even?

With such amount of investment the developers would be plain stupid to ignore earthquake threats. I am sure that there are systems that prevent BD from collapsing in earthquakes...
