Greenland Center 1700ft Dalian
R&F Center 1450ft Tianjin

Hi all.

I also am a bit pertubed over when the forum classes a project as under construction.

As far project management for building construction goes the construction phase begins with the site preparation stage of which the first step is the erection of a site fence.

This isn't the first physical task at the site, as there are many invoved with the planning phase like soil testing, etc. but when the last step of planning, which is the procurement of construction services, is complete and the fence goes up, the project is under construction.

Hi Cul.
I think you should include the projects that are U/C rather than going by which are in the WDN section of the forum.

Let me repeat - great work on all your drawings.


Ray.

Awesome work as always, Cul! Would be interesting to see how the India Tower, with the ginormous spire, stacks up amongst this lot.

You used to include the CN Tower as one of the background benchmarks and here you have omitted it. (Or maybe I am just missing it somewhere) As a Canadian, I always like it when we "represent" when we can.

Great work CULWULLA. One small thing, perhaps the machines in the diagram for PingAn should be in the bottom of the hole?

Cul, today the central core on the Pentominium jumped two additional floors. Now up to the 22nd level is visible beneath the formwork.

12 days for a 2 levels jump is great (the last one, that was a single level jump, happened on May 12th)

Empire State Building looks so cute!

I also never realized how massive the Tokyo Sky Tree is compared to everything else. Cool.
