Cool, they've started to dig beside the main foundations. I guess this is part of the "top-down" aspect of the project. Would be interesting to know how and where the excavations will connect with the tower's below-grade section.

[edit] Umm... now that I think of it, could those pits possibly be for the outer skin's supporting structures? Just think if they were, the tower would be humongous, like 150 meters in diameter at the base, by golly! Is there any wise man here who could confirm this hypotesis, or prove it wrong?

Any idea how much weights that huge block of steel part of a column being lifted by the crane in the above images ? How high will rise these columns ?

Hi Peloso.

Read back a few pages and you will find a great overlay of the site and a drawing showing clearly the proof you seek.

Um, judging by the drawing on page 309, all of the tower's projection will lie inside the big circle, so those pits must be for the podium's foundations. Okay, thx.

The area outside the 'circle' was done in sections using the traditional method by digging down the level B1 then forming and pouring the ground level. Not sure why they left the openings but the limited plans we have seem to show 5 lower levels that extend to outside the 'circle' so perhaps they are a way to get dirt out in a top down proceedure they will now use for levels B2 to B5 ?

And this is the drawing I was refering to - by Patrykus - pobably more like 20 pages back ...

The shape of them lift shafts is very unushally large. Normally in that space you'd expect 3-4x as many lift shafts. Each individual square in that 3x3 box is about 10 metres square! Maybe they'll build up some internal walls inside these... who knows.

excellent progress finally the floor plates are visible!.... so if the floor plates fit in the circle and the glass curtain goes outside the circle where does the podium go?

What you see there is the podium framing. The round part of the structure starts above the podium (about level 5).
