Without much public involvement, work at Kingdom Tower has progressed significantly in the past few months.
First off, according to JEC CEO, Mounib Hammoud underground works are complete and now above-ground works are done. He also hopes that by the end of this year, the first ten floors of Kingdom Tower will be built.
The Jeddah Economic Company acquired six cranes to aid in building the massive structure. The cranes that are developed by German company Liebherr & WolffKran are built to withstand harsh meteorological conditions, especially winds.
The biggest crane is a custom Liebherr type 357 HC-L. It will be able to lift 18 tons of materials at a speed of 44 meters a minute.
