Not so with the BD. Given that this is not an ordinary building--the cladding is all custom designed and built, and supplied by a company some distance away in another country -- will there be an inventory of cladding spare parts to be kept in a secure place either on-site or at least in the city - to be available quickly if the need arises.



Thank you
that is what you get for watching too much cable stories from NG or Discovery channels..

the glass is not special like that used in aero space engg.. it is architectural glass made by guardian glass in italy.. it is processed by local company white aluminum then assembled by local company arabiam aluminium with JV from Hk company fareast.

normally there are 2% or at least 2 pcs of "attick stock".

Imre, have you ever tried to make a Vertical Panorama? I Just saw it on some photoblog of a friend of mine,

i think if you split the building in 10 sections and make a foto of each part, then post them after each other on the forum, i looks like a Vertical Panorama.

How about splitting it into 75 sections?

(link removed - I'm redoing the Zoomify at the moment as not really happy with it)

Wow I have been following the construction of this building since 2005, I cannot believe it is almost done and that the cladding will be finished this month. I hope to one day see this for myself, it does not matter how long it will take me to get to Dubai, this tower will still be the world's tallest when I see it.

BTW, does anyone have more shots of the inside?
I've found some pictures showing the rooms in BD. Possible it has already been shown here.

Sorry for being off-topic. Just one last question, gerald.d: did you mean the two pictures look so different because the camera was a bit tilted in one of the pictures?

Thank you.
