It's nice to see the cladding progressing - but it seems like the core is not moving up much if at all. Correct me if I am wrong though!

They should have had a core jump by now.
That means one (and hopefully JUST one) of three things are holding it back: cash flow, engineering or logistics.
If it's logistics it'll start back up soon when they get their materials issues resolved.
If it's cash flow, they're going to have to throw their schedule out and push the completion down the road, depending on which hand(s) the money's coming from.
If it's engineering, well...they're probably keeping their hands close to the vest because this is a building with a lot of eyes on it right now.
If it's any combination (or worst, all three), then they're in trouble.
Not trying to be a Debbie Downer (I want to see this succeed), but this is the second time they've dragged their feet.

Guys you should now that the main constructor is having major problems and they are recovering now slowly. Almost 5 out of 10 big projects in Saudi Arania are under their construction and all are still on hold or in very slow progress. All I know that the government gave them time line to finish the new jeddah airport project by April this year.
The train station in Jeddah is on hold for almost 2 years now! some reports telling there will be new constructor in the upcoming days for the uncompleted projects. Bin Laden groups are having major financial problems.

Incredible !! The windows are highly reflective and their alignment must be very precise because they perfectly reflect the crane without even distorting it....

In other words, they took on too much work with too little resources and they got swamped. That would explain it perfectly.

It is simply impressive. Does anyone know which technique they use for such alignment?

So that's the "cheap" cladding that's been reported starting to appear on JT? Looks great.
