Post Construction Pix

NOVEMBER 2005

I heard there were about 700 piles that were to be dug inorder to tranfer the load of the superstructure above. You can see for yourself the larger number of piles over here.

Does anyone ever get the feeling that counstruction in Pakistan takes ages? Maybe our builders need new equipment and more workers?

Yes, I have been thinking the exact same thing for a couple of days. I believe it is because of using the slow 'traditional' methods instead of adapting and changing to a better and more efficient approach. I still see same thekaydaars and workers trying to delay the projects in order to get more dihaarees. Also manual labour is used instead of machinery as there is no lack of workers and they are cheap (relatively).
This approach sadly results in delayed projects, cost over runs and p*ssed off investors.

Salam,

Techno-Architect! Great stuff is comming from you. Keep it up. Those pictures are nice. Gives us a sense of some development taking place.

One little point though. I think there is some repetition of one or two pictures here. I think the First construction pic of Post #28 in "Telecom Tower, Tallest in Islamabad" is the same as the Second construction pic of Post # 3 in "Islamabad:Islamabad stock exchange tower". Or may be i'm too sleepy right now and they are two different pictures!!? (or may be they are the same projects!!?)

In general, i think, some very fine quality posts (pictures and comments) are comming from you. You are a good forumer.

Peace.

The design is definitely very much based on modern trends. Good project for Islamabad.

Construction pics

Heres some pics of the ISE tower i took this evening. looks a bit better than was since the last post.

also notice the crane. I met with an engineer at the site and he said they had been directed to speed up , so we might see another crane soon.(but he declined to give the deadline or the no. of stories).

From the impression i got, there seems to be a bit more activity here than the neighbhouring telecom tower(more trucks, lots of more workers, etc).

OK ..... here you go with the pics..









Plz dont complain about the pics.... it was way past 6 and thats the best my mobile can do...
