i haven't thought about that too much yet. But it could be true what you are saying. The only thing i can think of is that Shanghai Towers core has a lot of elevators in it and may therefor be wider than needed, which may be different for Ping-an, other than that no idea.

Shanghai Tower has around 2.970 m2 per floor and Pingan International Finance Center has around 4.075 m2 per floor. But the Shanghai tower has 128 floors and Pingan has 115 floors.

Wow really? I guess the outer glass skin that the Shanghai tower has is what gives it it's bulky look. Does that include the core floor space to? or just the usable floor space?

The crooked piling really bugs me. I guess it has nothing to do with supporting the structure....

They're just waiting for the steel structure elements to come. They have prepared everything and once the steel structure elements it will go quickly.

Hi all.

I see this in many construction threads - "What is taking so long ?" - "what is the hold up ?" ...........

I say "What is the hurry ?"
The construction phase in the life cycle of a building is the most exciting part. Enjoy the ride.

The planning phase is also exciting but we don't hear about much of that as it's happening. The operation and maintenance phase is by far the longest but is normally fairly mundane.

Some foundation rafts sit for 6 months for various reasons.
Be Patient and again ... Enjoy the ride.


Ray.

The most exciting part is to see it rise above ground level for me
