The height increase was obviously not that much, because they always needed more than the height of a single element on the bottom to be able to attach the wings. So there was always some space for moving of the parts. But that space is not needed anymore, they jacked just the few metres which were left, deducting the space they already had at the bottom of tier 22.

Perhaps is to not obstruct the rest of tier 22 structure still to be rise and put the last wing/transition parts of tier 23 after tier 22 completion

yes, anybody who thinks otherwise should rather redo all of our previous calculations and measurements, because there is some bigger room for mistakes than in the current photos and plans. Especially the first big jacking without anything attached to the spire might have been calculated wrong.

@Steve DXB
There is no cladding on the side of the two wings directed to the steel structure, as seen in earlier photos, these are only transition parts and no complete wings, they will NOT jack it!

Can't be, unless a change of plans. This would have the two missing halves of the half wings above the steel structure, and I don't think the crane can reach there to add the missing halves. If there is any rising left, it's probably only a meter or less.

If Fury's original comment above is correct (and he has been at every stage so far!) then we're definitely done - time to celebrate!!!

Here is a photo before the last jacking, the red circle shows the difference of the transition part and the wings above them. As you can see, the left side in the red circle is left open without any cladding.

Your pic OTR shows that white part of cladding is exactly level with the very top of the steel, so TOPPED OUT PEOPLE!

You are right and all the other pics are showing the same: Burj Dubai is topped out.

Are we sure there is no cladding on the lower part?

its hard to see if you ask me though i am not the expert. bigger pics will prove it right or wrong.

That's definitely true of the concrete levels and the lower steel levels. I see no reason to believe it's not also true for the non-functional upper steel levels, so I think we have T/O for sure.

Well, I guess until the spire is bolted and welded in place, it could fluctuate a few cm or mm up or down while still supported by the jacking system.
