I have a question about the Shanghai Tower core. I understand that it will be jam packed full of elevators and I would assume that each elevator will go to a certain group of floors. Does this mean that as the the core increases in height that it's size will be reduced as the elevators that are designated for the lower floors reach the top floor that they are going to service? I realize that the core's main function is to support the building and the wind load on a structure this large must be tremendous on a windy day so I'm just curious what the core will look like and how large it will be on the highest floors on the building. Thanks.

SSC does get a remarkable traffic from North Korea. From whom and why, we'll never know.


Back OT: I think the central core has risen, tower cranes too, am I right?

Hahahaha really? That is very interesting.

This tower will no doubt be fantastic, but it seems like work has slowed down a bit from a few months ago. I'm sure it'll pick up again soon enough.

The core will reduce in size as the tower rises (this is the case with many towers around the world). Even with the wind load, dampeners and supercolumns will keep the tower in place. I'm sure someone on here has a plan of the core near the base and one for one of the top floors. On a side note, some buildings don't even have a core near the top floors.

I think Kim Jong-il spends a little too much time on the internet.

It is as wide as a regular 150m tower.

The core would top out by Jun, 2013 at the height of 580m. And then they will begin the construction of the crown, which will cost about 6 months to complete.
The outer structure is due to reach 580m by Sep, 2013.
Obviously they have some delay issue right now thanks to those complicated truss levels extremely hard to build, and the one they are dealing with now weighs almost 8 thousand tons. And there are a total 8 of them.
One good thing to see is that they still have the chance to finish the whole building by the end of 2014.

Quality > time

i think they will be able to pick up the speed once the underground levels are finished.

These two parts of work are separated, one would not affect the another.
This is why the top down method is adopted.

I think what will take the most time will be the cladding.
But like already said : quality takes time.

Not if they clad as they build. I can't image such a tall tower being all bones up until it tops out. SWFC had cladding as it went, Jin Mao had the same thing as well. Of course, the shorter buildings in Luijiazu however had all bones upon topping out
