this will be above ground by December so I say there is a rush here and won't wait a month!

Within 1 day you can walk on the concrete, and you can continue on rebar, formworks, and the crane bases.
No problem at all.

- it says 'pile cap pour' at the beginning of the video => google pile cap, this was not the raft but 'only' a pile cap. The remaining hole might be filled in consecutive pours of concrete because there are caissons all over the place. Where there is a caisson, there's usually going to be very high loads of a tall structure.
- Wondering what's under the red coverings surrounding the hole, maybe the steel for the remaining raft?
- 150,000 tonnes of concrete has to be the tower, this is approx. 60,000 cubic meters of concrete which would be four times the foundation raft of Shanghai Tower => No.
- The video says 840 trucks and each truck carries 8 cubic meter ==> 6,720 cubic meters of concrete which makes much more sense considering the dimensions of the pile cap.
