The thread title should be changed to u/c. Piling is construction and they've already moved to the next phase, excavation.

i wouldn't wonder if a project with 1000m+ would come up the next 1-2years. Not including that 2KM vision for Changsha

impressive tower!
I prefer the wiggly cladding in post 1 rather than the cladding at the top of the last page. why did they change it?

I'm pretty sure it is. They claim they will complete all five underground levels by June 2013. That means they have less than a year to dig the hole and built up those levels. There is no time left for foundation piles which means they are constructed already. In fact this one is most likely u/c for at least half a year already if not more.

Yup, definitely U/C. Piling is construction and according to all news sources they've been doing (and have now completed) foundation piling.

I say those rigs are for foundation and we will see pouring of concrete slab around january/february 2013. If I'm right I will get free beer
A couple months building a foundation is nothing. In Mexico city Torre Reforma just started "growing" after 2 years of workers building the foundation. It has 12 basement floors btw

cheers

When I said couple of months of excavation I meant just that not foundation construction. Foundation is for 99% done right now. And by foundation I mean concrete piles drilled deep into the ground. So because that job is done it won't take long before beginning of excavation to first concrete slab. Because foundation is ready. What's more they don't have to excavate much since this tower compared to your example has only 5 underground levels. Btw I have to say I have never heard on this forum of a building with more than 7 underground levels, 12 seams quite an overkill to me

Oh ok got you. Yeah, last time i asked what was the usual depth of the foundation in this area of china and like you said, it's usually around 5 levels. I thought that it was due to holds or stand by, not because I thought it had a deep foundation.

As for Mexico city, our buildings basically have another building below them. That's to protect them not only because we are in a very active earthquake zone, but also due to the city being on top of a lake.

If you'd like to learn more about the type of foundation used in Mexico city i would greatly advise you to watch a documentary on "newly" built Senate house. This building has been called to be one of the if not the safest building in Mexico.

As for Torre reforma sorry it's 10 levels, not 12. here's a picture of how they look like:
Picture is by GERARDORS from SSC Mexico.

Cheers


Edit: I tried looking for the documentaries i told you, but i only found a version in spanish. The tittle is "Mexican Seante: Building over water" The documentary is from the discovery channel and it's fully available in youtube if you want to watch. Here's the link to the first video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNTTJvyXRnU

Some renders of the secondary towers within the complex. They didn't credit the source.
