While it is true that the hoisting time will take longer as the cranes climb up the building, the construction of each floor level will be quicker as the building progresses. The other issue that could come into play prolonging the construction time as the building climbs, is that the issue of higher winds at higher heights. As the tower crane can only operate at certain wind speeds, this can create havoc for construction due to the crane's downtime. This could had been the exact same reason why the The Shard construction took longer towards the end.

I’m back this week after my computer literally exploded after a fuse blew, there was smoke pouring out of it and me and my dad have only just got it back up and running!
Fortunately the hard drive was okay, so latest diagrams:
