i think once lower floors are established, the building then starts to rise swiftly!

Today morning I understood why the recent slowdown in construction.

They are using a construction method that I have never seen it before. We are all familiar with the form work for the central core, that can be a self-climbing jump or slip form, even this building is using that for construction of the central core.

What is strange and I wonder if anyone has ever seen, is that they are using the form to build the floor plate and pillars of the towers as well. Today morning the perimeter of the tower (see those yellow metal bars) was wrapped around on the white protective form, which seams it will rise with the building itself.

Strange, really.

ah yes! this is how we build alot of new projects in Australia! its a swift way of construction. This will be an all-concrete affair.
We have a few projects in Gold coast and brisbane that are using this method. a floor every 5 days then whole floorplate moves up like a core.Also if tower has same floor plate all the way up its best way to build.

yes the projects i posted do have some degree of floor plate change but very mimimal. if dubai start to build there tallies with slip form jump system they will be erected very quick . much faster ,much cheaper. better.

It is better for the workers (shadded from the sun and protected from falling) as well as nearby residents (a kind of soundproof).

As for the speed, the central core was rising at 1 floor per week speed, untill they started installing the slip form for the floor plate, so I see no reason why now it can't continue at the same.
