What an amazing building, totally an extraordinary job of engineering and athough as i said before, I don't really like the design, but whatever. And i'm sad 'cause here in méxico, our higher building, Torre mayor, is four times shorter than burj dubai.
And excuse me for the ignorance (and the bad english) but someone of you knows why does it's called burj dubai??, what does it mean??

"Burj Dubai" is Arabic for "Dubai Tower."

"Burj" is "tower" in Arabic.

the upper 100m section is incredibly thin. looking at crane shafts ,which are 2m wide. the upper part of burjD is lucky to be 10m wide/
no wonder its not habitable.. but it is accessible ,which i hope each section is airconditioned, so the maintenance guys wont have to walk up last 40 floors in hot stuffy conditions.

Air conditioning that section all the time would be a huge waste of energy, maybe it will have the ability to airconditioned it only when required. I don't see where there will be a lot of need for people to be in that area. It doesn't seem like there will be much to maintain.

They could possibly use vents as well - or some sort of ducting to direct the cooler air from outside to inside.

Its going to be like a greenhouse in that section because its going to have windows!! How high up are they using window panels? 739m?

I'm sure there won't be any air conditioning there. They will not bring those expensive ducting up there just for some maintenance guy who will go there once every couple of months. If the workers can work there now without A/C, the maintenance guy can much easier.

And the extreme weather conditions only last for 4 months in a year, so there won't be a big problem, even if you have to work in a non air-conditioned environment for one hour, you don't die or burn or anything. It is just uncomfortable. Do you think they will think about the comfort of one guy who is paid 200$ per month and lay A/C ducts on 40 empty floors? I don't think so.

Don't forget the temperature up there will be 4-5° C lower then ground and it will be less humid, so if they leave some ventilation grills it will be enough.
