Those pictures were taken on the ocasion of topping out of the concrete work by DOKA. I think his friends might work for HYDER (consultant) so I doubt he will have that picture in bigger size ... but he can ask him if he had a camera with him and if he took other pictures and of course for some insider infos.

thanks a lot for the pics.
Do you have pics from the inside?

I would like to know, how it looks in the appartments, even if they are not finished yet.

Well done Imre, excellent detailled pictures

Sterling photographic work again Imre, with good attention to the little bits and pieces that give a good account of the engineering behind this landmark building. I would imagine that as the cladding proceeds the numbers on site will peak as the fit out proceeds following the cladding. Did you get a good impression of how much of the HVAC and Electrical has been installed?

Absolutely stunning Imre. One of your best updates ever, we cannot thank you enough.

I do have to ask you though, what is the process involved for being allowed a visit inside the tower? I ask because I am planning a trip for the summer of 2008 which will include a stop in Dubai (I've never been). As a student of civil engineering and pre-architecture, it would be a once in a lifetime opportunity to witness in person the construction of the world's tallest structure. I know they don't let just anyone walk in there, which is why I'm asking you. I'll do whatever it takes, but if there's any chance I have of seeing this monster from the inside before it opens, I'd really appreciate any information you can give.
