Work to stop on Emaar schemes

Updated: 01 February 2009 09:02
Work at several Emaar Properties schemes in Dubai is expected to come to a halt in the coming weeks, after the local developer told contractors to stop ordering materials.

Thnx for the Update Imre,
Looks like the spire is being connectect to the tower so if there was any doubt of it being topped out its now for sure.
Hope they will continu soon on the cladding and finish this tower.

I think it is because the contracters don't get payed at the moment so they've halted work? This was an earlier problem with the cladding and it looks like it's happening again.

8 steel floors cladded, thats brilliant. When the entire building's cladding is cleaned, it will look out of this world.

why would the contractors not get paid? wasn't all the financing taken care of before construction or soon after it started?
