Saw this project a few months back, just never subscribed. Just stunning. Definitely near the top of my interests list.

Let's hope so. After, what, 3 years? This thing should be getting ready to get in gear and floor it all the way to the top.

Could somebody explain what's the purpose of doing concrete beams before excavating?

The big circular concrete structure?
That is to stop the stuff outside of the hole from collapsing into the hole.
The hole looks like it is about 40m deep, so the forces on the edges are HUGE, and it requires a strong structure to hold it back.
