We shall change the thread title i think.
Currently Burj Dubai is taller than Warsaw Mast which was the tallest structure ever built. So the title shouldnt be "World's Tallest Structure" anymore. We should make it "World's Tallest Structure EVER".

in this video you can see how they will install the spire (starting at 5:35), between tier 21-22(?) they install spire lifting machine and first lower the spire, build it and then lift it up

2nd @ 8m below
and the one we have been going off.
so it could be 819m, or 827m or 835m.
SOM will give plans to emporis after completion so they can decide.
It should be whatever entrance is the lowest without being underground

just wondering, only 192 concrete piles, that doesnt sound much to me, but i suppose the ground they're building on is of a total different level in comparison to the dutch swampie earth below my feet. But still, for a surface as big as the base of this building,
is the ground of the same quality as if the rocky bottom of the manhatten base they build everything on?

Before I get too excited, can someone clarify the height of the warsaw radio mast?

Wikipedia states it was 646.38 m. I know the mast has been destroyed and BD is the tallest structure on earth as of now but 10 metres more and it'll be the tallest structure ever.

Congratulations to the BD team nonetheless.

The shape of the building helps allot on reducing the overall number of piles needed, and no the soil is not rocky.

Hey cul
Found your diagram on GIZMODO
http://gizmodo.com/391942/burj-dubai...tructure-today

You should get paid by emaar for publishing it so well, or at least get to go once up to the beacon that you love so much hehe
