Fury, I see you have changed the floor heights on your new diagrams compared with the old ones you sent me a while ago. How come they are different? Podium 3 is the first I noticed - 4m now 3.7m. Are those the final sizes?
Thanks

I'm so excited about the works on the steel section. Will they finish all the other concrete parts first?

lets just talk about Burj dubai and not whats going to be built higher or the starving in Africa. theres threads for that.
cheers

Nicely put.
This building will remain famous because in my humble opinion it is simply beautiful and will always be viewed as such. Perhaps it will be surpassed but I think it will attain the kind of status that the Chrysler building has desite being raidly surpassed by the empire state.
For me the slender design and the choice of cladding is perfect for this location and will make the building sparkle like a silver needle. At ground level the way it's base will be surrounded by water will avoid the windswept desolate look that many tall buiding have at ground level while still allowing it enough separation from its neighbours to truly stand out.
I'm sure there will be many taller buildings. in fact I hope there will. But right now though I think this building is `the one` and I cant wait for it to be finished so I can come and visit it

Thanks for all the updates everyone provides on here. i have been really enjoying following the progress.

not really a surprise. hopefully this wasnt posted before


published in the middle of october.

-------------------------------------------

Malaysia's Eversendai Corporation has won a US $14.7 million (AED 53.9 million) contract from Samsung Corporation for the structural steelworks on Emaar's Burj Dubai.

Work on the steel structure is set to begin this week - making Eversendai the first company in the world to carry out steel works at a 555.3-metre height.

"We can confirm that Samsung has taken on Eversendai to carry out the steel works for the Burj Dubai and to construct the spire at the top of the building," said So Young, spokeswoman, Samsung.

Eversendai will require more than 4,000 tonnes of structural steel for the Burj Dubai.

The company will build the spire from the inside of the building, and will then use a hydraulic pump to extend the spire out of the top. This will mean that the height is adjustable.

"The finished spire will actually be dropped down and built inside the building, and will be jacked up to full height; when it's ready the height will be locked off," said Fred Durie, executive director, Emaar.

"The project is scheduled to be finished next summer, but I think they may finish earlier with the way things are going."

Eversendai has worked on other major projects with Samsung, including Dubai Festival City and Burj Al Arab.

The company is also working on the Dubai Mall project.

Eversendai has completed more than 32 jobs in the Middle East in the last 11 years.

In September, Burj Dubai surpassed Toronto's CN Tower to become the tallest free-standing structure in the world.

According to the most recent estimation, the tower stands at 555.3 metres.
