It's not even a USA financial crisis. It's a subprime lending crisis.

Burj Dubai reaches 601 m


Concreting elements at the Burj Dubai have this week topped out at 601 m making the structure the tallest tower in the world.

Contractors JV of Samsung-Besix-Arabtech have completed the structure core inside the original timetable despite using an unusually high proportion of Doka wall-forming systems for the construction of a skyscraper.

The honeycombed structural design, with many airframe-like stiffening reinforcements, necessitated the forming of 430000 m² of wall - twice as much as for the floor elements.

Samsung’s project director Kyung-Jun Kim, said, “As the in-situ concrete core was being built ahead of the floor-slabs, construction progress on the whole building was entirely dependent on the self-climbing Doka formwork solution.”

The final height of the Burj Dubai is expected to reach around 800 m when it is completed at the end of the year.

That article doesn't seem accurate...we've all been watching the frequent updates from Imre and Old Town Resident. It was at L156 and 585m at the top of the concrete structure, there's just no way it jumped another 15m.

It absolutely is, that's got to be between 3 and 5 more levels at roughly 4 m per floor. The height (585m) is counted to the top of the formwork, not to the exposed concrete right below it. And if they are dismantling the formwork from the top (which has been confirmed in pictures), then it's got to be steel structure. I can't imagine that somehow we've missed 4 floors of steel go up without anyone taking pictures of it. Don't worry helghast, I'm not disagreeing with you, just with the article. You were right to post it, but its information should be taken with a grain of salt. The average forum user here knows more about the Burj Dubai than whoever wrote that article, so all I'm saying is we shouldn't be so quick to believe them without any visual proof.

Hi all.

The top of the concrete ( and the structure right now ) is 585.7 meters.

No Helghast the reporter probably pulled the # out of his bosses ass.

The next tier ( 16 ) is 3 levels of 6.4 meters - 156, 157, and 158 - with 158 at 3.2 and 158 Mezz at 3.2.
