Several months ago when there was still a huge round hole on the ground the constructor said they want to get the core 10 or 12 floors high at the end of the year, now it seems they will reach their target.
It won't be long to see the whole tower begin to rise up, the speed, according to the bulider, will be five days a floor.

I would hazard a guess at 125,000 tons of steel ?

hmmmm....

thanks Ray.. i think we will have to wait 4-5yrs to see the amount of steel used here

To me, they seem to be digging all around the core, filling it up with concrete, then starts to digging down all over again.

Looks like its top of the core, tucked behind an elevator. That's one at least :P

Then according to the technical drawings, the megacolumns are the sections outlined in red. I guess the rest of the big circular footing for the tower is for the Podium then?

Hi Nord.
My guestimate is based on the tonnage of steel for one of the original WTC towers which had 100,000 tons each. This is much taller - hense the 125,000 estimate.
My only language is english so I can't read your links.
Please enlighten us with the tonnage stated in the article.

Hi Pablo.
Yes - very delighted.
These are larger versions of plans that were posted here a few months ago.
Plans are good ...
Many more would be better ...


Ray.
