Man, there must one heck of a convoy of concrete trucks to keep all those pumps running! (How is the pouring affecting traffic?)

No updates?? It should be almost done if it is a single pour.

It is said the pouring is done in today's news, no picture provided though.

I was just about to comment on that. That's epic!

I was in Lujiazui last evening and saw all the concrete trucks, so I figured they were doing the foundation pour. I guess I was right.

I'd say Shanghai Tower and 1WTC are the most fascinating towers at the moment, from a construction standpoint.

the video said it took 60 hours of pouring to finish the concrete slab. The thickness is about 2 floors and an area of 1.6 soccer field.

From that picture above, in the red poster, the wording kinda suggest that the pouring of 60,000m^3 has done already in 26th =/

At the same time they building an underground tunnel connecting subway line 2, line 14, jinmao and SWFC with shanghai center.

Haha, nice analogy I think I counted 13 pumping arms in one of the photos. I wonder how many hundreds of concrete trucks were used? Epic indeed. I hope there are some photos of the pour from SWFC or Jin Mao - that would be an amazing perspective.

2 floors thick!?!?

I wonder how big the cooling system is to take away all that heat from the concrete!
