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.
