Under that circumstance they don't have OSHA! They can basically do things how they want to instead of being told how to by the government.

Hi all.

In those 3 shots of the top from the CCTV that we got months ago the safety system could be clearly seen. They had a line strung between the columns about 5 feet above the beams. The workers then tie off to those so they can walk along the beam.

Hi all,
today's pictures:







I liked the top more with two cranes instead of one, it's so lonely up there alone.. Hopefully the new one gets up quickly!

Hi all.

Time for some BD Cranes 101. This info is from plans - I can't see the model numbers on the actual cranes in any pics but I'm fairly sure they followed this.

Here is a table that answers pretty much every question ever asked in here.

[IMG]http://i36.************/2j2gkcz.jpg[/IMG]

TC#3 - Favco M220D - 11 ton - was the crane on the North side that was disassembled in sept '07 and put up on level 99 in Nov. '07 as recovery crane #2 (RC#2). Its mast is narrower at 2.0 by 2.0 m. where the other 2 masts are 2.4 by 2.4 m. but all are 4.0 m. high. The sections of the bigger 2 cranes weigh 4 tons.

TC#2 - Favco M380D - 25 ton - is the one being disassembled right now. It faced 240 degrees and it is done working on this structure.

TC#1 - Favco M440D - 25 ton - faces 120 degrees and will complete the top of the structure. It will be up for months yet. When finished it will self lower down to the bottom of its mast.

RC#1 - Favco 242R is the smaller blue crane just recently put up on level 159. It will be used to lower TC#1 down to level 99 where RC#2 will lower it to the ground.

RC#3 - Favco SDD3/10 is the "tiny" crane that will be put up on level 159 to lower RC#1 to level 99 and then be taken down in an elevator to level 99.

RC#1 will be put up on level 99 to lower RC#2 to the ground.

RC#3 will be put up on level 99 to lower RC#1 to the ground then will itself be taken down in an elevator.

Between the jacking proceedure and the crane disassembly proceedure there is some interesting times ahead.



As per the revised schedule we have from 07 02 26 :

- Begin jacking proceedure 2nd week of July '08 - We are near 3 months behind schedule right now.

- Top out 3rd week of Sept '08. Approx 10 weeks after jacking begins.

- Structure finished and begin crane recovery proceedure - 2nd week of Dec. '08. Approx 12 weeks after top out.

- Project completion - Aug 16 '09. Approx 8 months after the structure is finished.

So the longer it takes to start jacking the more behind we will get. After they get started unless they find a way to go faster than the schedule top out may not be this year. The crane disassembly may not be before April '09.

Project completion may not be effected as much by the delays at the top of the structure but I'm sure it will be delayed perhaps a month or two. That is providing the inside work is going good.

Fury, where do you get all this information from. Did you raid the offices of Emaar.
No seriously man, unless it’s a secret.

What is the progress of interior works? The facade at the lower levels are sealed, right? So is fitting out currently taking place?
