Is it typical of London construction to build the entire core prior to any floors at all? Even The Shard started to build up after the core hit a couple stories.

if the core tops out before a single piece of steel is added.. will this be a first? I mean has this happened anywhere else before?

I believe that has occured in some buildings in Australia, but I don't remember which.

Either way, this is unusual. Hopefully the steel will rise soon!

I actually think the Milton Court - The Heron (112m) toppede out before steel was added. Am I right or wrong?

it does seem self defeating, given the speed at which the core rose, to not start on the steel while the core is still rising

is there a special reason for building the whole core before starting with the steel?

i've got just 2 ideas why the core is built before the steel work start:
1. since the tower has unique shape, maybe it need whole core to be built to start steel. for example, construction of the core can interfere steel work or something like this
2. the developer doesn't have enough maney since not all the office space is sold(and as i understand this problem is common for london now). so they want 20 funchurch street to top out as quikly as possible to make a feeling everything is all right, they've got enough money and gonna build at time

What about option 3: It's just a normal construction method. I've seen this so many times. First building the whole core, than the rest of the building. Quite normal here in Holland too. Even for simple boxes.

Regarding the question about cores being topped out before steelwork starts... To my recollection The Bank Street Towers at Canary Wharf were the same... I think maybe Barclays, HSBC and Citigroup too

It's very odd, I've never seen a construction like that across the pond before. However there's always a reason.
