Going up the center would solve the problem ....sort of.....the last stage of it is only 1.2m dia. (approx. 46 inches) and that would cut that in half if the latter is in the middle....i would hate to be a heavy maintenance worker climbing up a realy tight hole for 50 meters to a little tiny platform 1/2 mile in the air........not me NO WAY!

Hi all.

Busy working and had some computer issues.

Nice find Helghast. Yes Darth I am usually the one to post pics from picasa. Browse through there on my daily rounds but haven't done my rounds last few days. Picasa has an **** layout - makes searching through very time consuming.

On the pinnacle ladder subject a few posts back. Where the pinnacle narrows is where they put a small landing then the ladder continues up on a different side on the inside - 120 degrees from the last run. It is clear in the prints. I would post some but tired now - sleep needed - work to be done. I think I will sneak in my rounds tomorrow though before I get to far behind.

The 11th steel floor is progressing but is far from being "almost ready"

Looks very dubai, lots of granite...oppulence.
Allthough i do recall that on the BD website it says you can opt for personal interior design.
