Twisty on the outside, circular floor plates on the inside.

Good to hear the pour has been completed. Wonder how long now for this to cure to near/full strength?

Hi all.

60,000 cubic meters in a single continuous pour - awesome.

PG it will take a long time but they will be able to get ready for and start pouring core walls right away as there won't be much weight for a while.

The BK is the only raft I know of that they waited 6 months (Sep 04 - Mar 05) before they started getting ready for the core walls. Some of this time may have been because of switching over to the tower contractors but I know they did want to wait for some curing time.

All other foundations I have been "watching" there was no wait time before forming up and pouring core walls. With the pace of this project I'm sure it will be right away as well.

Nope. He is scared because of the power of rising China

Great update on the last photo. I guess it will take another 3-5 months to get above ground, maybe even longer?
