Com = Internally and externally complete.

In the UK forum we usually include "Prep" towers in the U/C section.
Lol since when pilling and (sic!) foundation is considered prep? Who changed that and what sense does it make? Since I joined ssc 5 years ago foundation always has been considered u/c. Even in this new set of rules u/c means superstructure and guess what: foundation is part of it so there is something seriously wrong here and whoever compiled it should fix it.

just posted what it says on the "request for moving threads" first post should be changed then, because we normally always move threads when piling starts as you said

Agree, it was always like that and should stay like it is.
As i posted before, the piles are part of the tower itself, so it's just logic it counts as U/C.

So many Shenzhen projects! Wow. I think they're trying to give Dubai a run for their money.

Very nice tower, reminds me of the PHARE tower whose construction is to start in the next few months in La Défense.
