Yep, you can see green scaffoldings following each supercolumn - thats the place where concrete works are going. Generrally, we can be pretty sure each piece of steel covered with lots of bolts like these below will be covered with concrete.

in the first of patrykus pics is the grey beam on top of the supercolumn the brace for joining the super column and core wall?

They may not be using bamboo scaffolding on this tower, but it's extensively used on other projects in the city.

ive noticed with chinese bldgs, there is massive core with hardly space left for floor plate? sort of 50%.
i would think it would be more economical to have a smaller core?
great updates btw

Also most office towers house substantial amount of working space in the core. That being said, this core is made up entirely of elevators it seems...

The core is 30*30m, and the floor of zone 2 is 76.5m in diameter, that means, the core occupies about 20% of the floor space.
