Great progress. Now it will be more interesting to follow up this thread as the tower gets off the ground.

I believe they have put them on to protect the rebars from the longer exposition to the element. From the last kanye update it is obvious now they are disassembling the climbing forms from the core. I suppose they will install now the actual climbing system we usually see on the towers core. And since during that process rebars would be exposed for longer than usually it seems only reasonable to give them additional protection for that period.

I only hope my theory is right because only different reason why would they give rebars additional coating, that I can think of, is when tower is about to be put on hold but I would rather stay positive

the plastic rebar caps are called mushrooms and they are used to ensure rebar sticking up is both visible and less likely to impale someone should they accidentally bump into one.

they should be fitted at all times on exposed rebar not being worked upon, as in the case of those sticking out of a paused slipform.

i've worked on a site where the bucket of an excavator hit a worker, launching them onto a pile cap with exposed rebar which gouged a pretty big hole in the guys head. unfortunately , the pile cap was being worked upon at the time so the mushrooms that would have lessened the injury were not in place.

they are not for exposure protection

I know what you are talking about. I've seen "mushrooms" a lot here on ssc. But I think it's different here. First it looks like each rebar is completely covered with orange coating/plastic. And you can actually see blue mushrooms being used outside the core. As you said they are just small plastic tops on each rebar, something significantly different is used on the core. Second thing rebars have never been covered on this construction site like this until now when the jumping form is being disassembled. It's possible the color is also for the visibility but I'm not sure then why wouldn't they use a regular plastic caps instead of painting each rebar completely. I know of two construction sites one India Tower and another one of a tower in poland. Both have had their sticking rebars painted before being put on hold. But I think it's not the case here.

I think You maybe right Partrykus, It might of been a temporary climbing form. I haven't heard anything in the media about this being on hold and all other Lotte projects are rising. I'll try to go to Nampo Saturday and ask someone.

Can someone please post the most recent render for this tower. A couple pages back I heard the roof height was reduced to 436 meters. Hopefully that turns out to be false and the whole tower's height will be included in roof height making it 1,674 feet tall.

The roof is at 436m, just the spires will make it 510m.

Well to me it looks like the rebars on the core were painted. but unless we have better quality pictures there is no point in arguing.

aah we're not arguing, we're just having a chat. long rebar painted dayglow red or long rebar wrapped in dayglow red plastic (long mushrooms) serve the same purpose. visibility.

i know of no weather conditions that can adversely affect steel rebar in such a short space of time.
