#2 Based on the Pak's previous construction work using 'domestic' contractors, I wouldn't want to go above the second floor, or possibly even enter the building. Heck, I would hesitate to go anywhere near its 'falling debris' radius.

(not denigrating the 'foreign' folks who've built there, but those buildings don't always work so good either)

#3 Using "domestic" contractors is good, because over in CHINA Beijing's push to modernize nationwide AMAP has seriously compromised contruction safety + standards.

Many of China's newest buildings have repor cracked or collapsed soon after completion.
IFF CHINA'S BUILDINGS DON'T COLLAPSE DUE TO SHODDY OR POOR CONTRUCTION, THEY'RE COLLAPSING FROM GIANT UNDERGROUND SINKHOLES DUE TO THE DUBIOUSLY ENGINEERED, REVIEWED "THREE GORGES" PROJECT + RELATED.

#5 That tallest building in the world is going to do interesting things to the Karachi Korpse Kount. I wonder how many bodies future archeologists will find buried in the foundation?
