I wondered about the cladding but just didnt ask.

Maybe instead of spending time writing a critical comment just write the answer.
Just my thoughts.

He asked the question about 1 week ago in the UK thread for this building..he got an answer there!

I am the Senior Construction Manager on the project please send questions so that we may give you all the real story. Also if there is a local group who would like to be treated to a walkround site this can also be arranged.

absolutely, I'd be very keen. I only work about 10 mins from Lime Street. As one of only 4 attendees at the last London meetup........ (gees, that sounds sad!) I believe that that might constitute our current 'local group'.

Well, according to my main man Will Fox -who mentioned it on the UK forums- the cladding is due to arrive on August 7th, by which time the concrete and steel work should have been completed! So about 1 month till we get cladding!

Nice shot. What's the red crane in the foreground for (the one right in front of the Gherkin)?

absolutely, I can think of a couple of others who are in the vicinity and would bite your hand off for a site visit. I'll personal message them and we'll co-ordinate from this end before giving you a call.

Many thanks

Jimbo.

Well, if anyone is going to London make sure you take a digitral camerac along and get some good snap shots of the city and post them on SSC!

The weather has been bloody gorgeous these last few weeks:
