Hi all.

Here is my latest plan comparison to level 151. The first pic uses the 818 m plan. The next 2 use the 705 plan which is the same as the 818 up to level 111. I have posted the comparison to 111 before. Just reposting them to show all of the comparison.

Hi all.

Here is my latest Burj dubai Analysis. Slight adjustments to the numbers from some new info. I also added some info. I put alot of time in over the last couple of days. I think this is the most accurate and up to date work that is out there ( that is available to the general public ). I will revise it again if changes are made to the plan.

I hope you all enjoy it and feel free to use it where you can - with some credit if you would be so kind.

Hi all.

Here is a print showing the shape of tier 15. I have drawn the shape of the concrete core as it is now. The north side is the side with the 4 openings that has some winglets poured and the crane removed.

Hi all.

Here is a detail print of the top of the tower.

2004775456568375447_rs.jpg

We can see the 1.2 meter dia. tier 30 pinnacle and the 1.5 meter dia. platform on top. We can also see where the lights connect .400 meters above the platform. We can also see the guardrail 1.1 meters above the 818.0 platform. This 1.1 meters probably won't be counted in the official height. Just as the official height will be measured from the ground and not from the slab 15.25 meters below that.

Just imagine how awesome it would be to be standing out on that platform holding on to that guardrail taking in the view !

Awesome.

Enjoy. :):):)

:shok: Burg's tallness is absolutely insane. It's a shame the official height is being kept under wraps until the building is topped out. In the mean time I'm predicting the top out will happen at 2700 ft.

It is amazing how tall this building is. It is an amazing feat of both construction and architecture and will compete with skyscrapers for decades to come without doubt.
