Dubai fountain NAVY is in action. These guys look ridiculous on these things. They look like they are fishing.

Has there been any test on the maximum water height of the fountain. What was it 100m or 200m?

Thanks for the pics Desert Diver.

Now I try to do a better video with more more details of construction. You can help me to do my video. I just start and i lack many information about the construction's beginning. Particulary, I lack the plan of the raft level (lower level at -15.2m).
So if you have any plans of construction, please post it or send it on my mailbox : [email protected]

PS : I m french so my english could be a little uncorrect.
I don't know how to insert personal pictures about Burj Dubai, anyone can help me?
I just finished watching your video and it's FANTASTIC!!! It made my skin shiver when you showed the "final product" because it really gave a great sense of scale.

I wonder how come we hadn't seen it. You uploaded it over 8 months ago.

I hope you don't mind me embeding your video, but if you do, I'll remove it.

I usually don't like it when these bitch-fights happen on a thread. And, I have to admit to being somewhat embarrased to post this, but I've just gotta say:

Hi-Five, Paul! I can't stop laughing at your comments!! That was too fierce, dude!!! You're funnier than a hung-over, still-drunk drag-queen with a lost earing, a broken heal, and a stocking run!!

Sorry FM2258, but he done gotcha good.

lol....give me an engineering team, some bulldozers, pipes and some paychecks and I'll design this thing to look like a lake.




Ok....if it were that easy I wish I could come over and design the lake.

Hi Pierre.

I saved your vid months ago - great work dude.

I'm not sure what you are looking for when you say plan of the raft level. The 2.05m. high lowest level below B2 level is not used and the name raft level is the name I gave it as it is not named in the plans.

Let me know what you are looking for and I will help if I can.
