World's Tallest Building to Soon Open in Dubai--(think they've accounted for Thermal-Expansion?)

I was wondering if anyone here has the expertise or knowledge of new building construction since the discovery of "Thermal Expansion," which, according to NIST, of course, can bring down a building in a symmetrical, free fall speed collapse, due to small fires only.

Have new construction codes been put in place? I have yet to hear of any.

Research: James Schlesinger, Bob Kerrey and Dov Zakheim and "Landmark Aviation Airport Services"

Landmark Aviation plans on divesting its FBO (fixed base operation) "Landmark Aviation Airport Services" and upon consultation with Merrill Lynch has placed the "Airport Services" division in a management trust operated and overseen by trustee's James Schlesinger, the former Secretary of Defense, Energy and CIA Director; former Sen. Bob Kerrey of Nebraska (9/11 Commission); and Dov Zakheim, the former Pentagon comptroller.

(Background: Landmark Aviation was recently sold by the Carlyle Group to (DAE) Dubai Aerospace Enterprise Ltd.) Landmark Aviation and its "Airport Services" have also been suspected of running rendition flights out of Dulles Airport. (Links Below)

"DAE has placed Airport Services in a management trust. The FBO division is separated from the rest of DAE, and has its own infrastructure and support network. The trustees were selected in consultation with Merrill Lynch and include: James Schlesinger, the former Secretary of Defense; former Sen. Bob Kerrey of Nebraska; and Dov Zakheim, the former Pentagon comptroller."
