Are lightning storms frequent in Dubai? Already so many amazing shots of lightnings hitting the Burj. Cannot imagine what it will be like when it is done.

They could try channeling the energy for electricity

That makes me think of Frankenstein. It's alive, IT'S ALIVE! I suppose it makes sense: the Burj is a monster of a skyscraper.

Cladding doesn't have to be fully caught up before jacking starts. But the Top of the Pinnacle needs to be finished.
