#27 Night time Construction

Photos like these, you’ll only see it now.

The finished product – once the cladding, the facade is on, is beautiful – but no one ever sees what’s underneath. The concrete, the steelwork, the bare structure.

The hard work that the people in the industry put into – from the client, to consultants (yes, architects too – I haven’t forgotten you 😉 ), to contractors, to the many labourers who work long hours and nights (It’s 11pm when I took these photos) – I don’t think anybody really cares about ay.

So here’s my little salute to us all. Especially to these people wearing blue overalls, standing on the odd 20+ floor in the marina, fixing reinforcement.

I guess all of us living here just have to put up with the neverending noise of drilling, cutting, and of trucks reversing (they are always, always reversing) 🙂

I think I’ll miss this when and if we ever move from here ay.




Afternote – Good news for all Dubai residents, Dubai Municipality is finally doing something about the noise pollution! See here.

Dubai resident. Stays most of the time in the marina as she can't be bothered going anywhere else after work and in the weekends. Originally from the land of the orang utans, spent the latter half of her life in the land down under. Always on the look out for deals, loves organising get-togethers, and occasionally steals some time for a sip of wine or four at ladies nights.
