Ah cool, thanks I always wondered why there are so few buildings of this kind (only remember recent one from Canada), because they are surely more efficient with having a high percentage of usable floor space (Shanghai tower comes to mind with its rather fat core).

Steel structure buildings are also usually built more quickly.

Yeah it's almost weird because on a typical construction site there's a lot of sand, dust, water and all-around dirt flying everywhere ... Here they probably don't even need to change their clothes after work
