Great update Gerald. Good to see the Burj and the lake progressing nicely! It's good I think to tell what work is going on some of the pictures, this will keep the negative people quiet (looks like it is on hold!! )

Keep 'm coming!

Indeed Fury, as also I have missed all the groundwork, I'm very curious to that part also! Some pictures would be great..

I know him personally and he works on the industry but not involved with Burj Dubai, probably he works now or worked before with someone who did.

He is indeed very busy with his current work but I'll try to get something from him when I'll have the chance.

Yes they are. Someone, an insider, said some weeks ago that one of them will be used as rail for the BMU while the others are just a design element.

When I was at the site last December they also told me that they are used as a rail for the BMU's, so not only a design element!

I agree. We all can see that one of the piping supports has a stronger design, so i guess that is the one used as a rail.

Great photo 234.

Fabulously clear sky today - probably one of the clearest days I've known in the last year.

Close-up of the piping. A bit grainy, but it was hand-held so I had to dial-up the ISO.

With such posts you wont reach page 818. Banning should come before

Do you want me to ban you 1 day for each time you spammed about the 818th page?
