for example the people of the big apartements furthest away form the core,
can only go 1 way if there is a fire. And if that fire is at that aprtement next to them, they can't escape safely.
Or don't they take fire escape's building laws that serieuosly in these regions?
Eureka Tower is one of the first buildings int he world to have fire proof lift shafts. forget the stairs you can take the lifts!
btw, the Burj d is twice the width of Eureka at its lower floors.

Hi all.

Some of the info I used for version 3 of my analysis is from that same print.
I used the info from the left side of it. My work is correct with what is on the left side of that print.

No change as far as I can see.

Hey guys, just came across this while searching for other things of interest .

http://travel.howstuffworks.com/burj-dubai.htm Looks like the article was launched today or very recently. Though it doesn't show us anything insanely new, it is neat to see the BD cropping up in nearly all factual sites of interest.

Thats pretty cool Real - I've been going to that site for years - never thought the Burj would be in there.

This highest occupied floor thing ...

Level 154 is the highest boutique office mezzanine. That is the highest level with an official use. As Cul has said there is many levels above this where a person can go. Accessed by either stairs or ladders a person can go right to the top of the structure. So all levels could be the highest occupied level if interpretated loosely. IMO 154 is the highest occupied level by the plans. Perhaps there will be some small Emaar offices higher that are not on the plans.

No it is tier 21. But as i said it depends how you interpret occupied.

Tier 22 starts at 700.9 meters, The wings are approx 200 sq. ft. each. The wings and center area are seperate areas. also the third wing is a terrace. So 2 200 sq. ft. wings and a center area the is also divided even more makes for some pretty small offices but possible I guess.

im guessing the new formwork being taken down is from the (inside) core part where we cannot see it. because from the outside its still all there.

Tier 11 is almost complete, but shall take a while to finish off as it is a mech floor.

Tier 12 only has a few more levels to top out, its moving very fast.

the other concrete winglets are also nearly done, apart from the side where the crane looks dangerously un supported and covered in the green mesh.. surely they shud have taken this crane down by now. (unless its the crane being used for the steel.)

Are you sure that the width of BD is twice that of Eureka? cause i pass it everyday while travelling and it actually appears quite thin - even when viewing it relatively close. I'd imagine that the width of BD would be 3 times or maybe 4 times the width of Eureka. What do you say?

Ember, Whatever they are doing, both cranes are working flat out with non stop lifts going up to the top.

I have a feeling that once the steel concrete interface is complete we will see considerable progress in height.

Transporting only the formwork down or is there also any traffic to the sky?
