Very similar to the one-time proposed Las Vegas Crown development.

dunno how complicated it is, i just know this work is always done quite fast. the big pour isn't that far away!

after the pour it probably will slow down like we saw at Ping An.

I'm completely ignorant as to what the function of those metal poles sticking out or of the ground are, but it seems like they're pretty bent up and crooked. Does it not matter what they look like because they fill the area in with concrete or something? Also, are the poles straight underneath and they provide some sort of support to the concrete poured on top of them?

Thanks.

The rebar sticking out of the tops of the piles gets mangled when the top layer of concrete is jackhammered out to expose the ends of the rebar. It doesn't matter too much because it can be straightened out again, and it's getting encased in the foundation slab anyway.
