i just think the crane will lift up sections at a time and insert them at lower levels which will then be attached to main pinnacle and then jacked up.i think tier21 is where the pinnacle sections are being placed.

I find the Burj Dubai fascinating. I just wish that for the world's tallest building, it would have an observation deck. Or am I wrong and it will have one? Either way, Dubai is becoming a playground and there will be many more of these projects pushing the boundaries.
