Yes, they are using CX34b grade. Very strong and durable. Also quickly solidifying.

And of course it's still low down, it's not rising high into the air like the Shard's core, so it's not confronted the elements yet.

First appearance of the Pinnacle on London's historic cartoon skyline (as pioneered by A-Z, Evening Standard, et al)? No Shard, though.

Is it going to be completed in 2012? i guess, the entire progress takes only 2 years, right?

Due to be completed in 2013, so not quite in time for the Olympics, but by then it will have quite a big impact on the City skyline

Just because the core didnīt rise doesnīt mean itīs slow...take a look to the pics above the last ones and compare the core surroundings.

I think the core has risen a floor or so. But there's a lot more work going on other than the core.
