No one is really complaining here.

The progress speed of both the structure and the cladding is very impressive. I remember the days when we were wandering for long long time why this thing was delayed and now it is just shooting up.

Looking imposing now.

Imre: Is this one your favorite or do you just pass it regularly. You seem to update Almas more than most others?

Amazing Tower and great photos! A question for Imre: Have You seen there construction surveyors, who are working with special measuring instruments?

He can actually do that from his balcony, but no doubt this tower is great and no surprise if it is one of his favourites.

To Imre: No, I'm not working there (unfortunately) I am a construction surveyor from Estonia. I'm just interested how they are working there...
Once again, great pics Imre! Keep it going...

Yes, but what kind of tachymeter (Leica, Trimble etc.) And how they use their reference points to coordinate the tachymeter?

It is so tall already compare to the other JLT towers, imagine that there are more then 100 meters to go (on top of spire)
