Burj Dubai May 9th 2008 photo update

We have now passed 40,000,000 manhours on the Burj Dubai, and over 7000 workers have worked on the project.

Also probably within a week the first column of the first section of tier 19 will be set and the Burj Dubai will become the tallest manmade structure in history at 649.7 meters. from grade (to the top of the column). The first section of tier 19 will have a terrace facing North (tier 18 roof or setback ).

It will be interesting to see the next 3 setbacks as the following 3 face the same direction - namely 0, 120, and 240 degrees. Up untill now the following round of 3 have been 60 degrees different from the previous 3 since tier 12.
