Hi Nord.

A rough model ??

Downright impressive - great work.

It is likely the rounded triangular outer curtainwall will be working its way up from the bottom ? Perhaps some cladding as well ?

As you said, a lot of features are still missing, like the rounded triangular outer curtainwall, the cladding, etc. So I called it a rough model.
Hopefully I can add those in the near future.

It will be nice if the first truss level will be fully completed as the rounded triangle with cladding up to it. Potentially some podium work too?

Great diagram, Nord!

It's probably bamboo isn't it? Don't they use bamboo a lot for scaffolding in China?

Bamboo? Yeah, I see it often in China, but not at Shanghai Tower. Actually, when I took a closer look at previous photos, I can see that it's not bamboo but actually metal.

The floor plates of the top two levels are looking more square than the rest.

The progress has been impressive but i still doubt they are going to reach the plan by the end of this year. The truss belt alone took something like a month. And there are two more before the year ends.

Well if it took one month to complete one truss belt, and they are planning to complete two more this year which still has 6 months to go, that leaves them with approximately 4 months of time flexibility. Doesn't sound that unlikely to me!

But half of the year has gone, and the tower only reached about 1/3 of the planned height, not to mention the core was already on something like 5th level by December last year. Maybe they took a little longer to build the podium but still..

I'm pretty sure the pace will speed up alot once the worst heat and rain period is over.

There's something I'm not quite getting here. I thought the belt truss floors would be wider than the floors above and below them, given that they support the floor of the atrium spaces between the outer skin of the building's cladding and the inner skin of the occupied floors. Do I have that right or am I totally in lala land?

You can see here that there will be a series of radial trusses projecting out from the core, through the belt trusses.

I am still amazed at how huge the main steel columns are. Bloody enormous!

Thank you, QMS. That's what I thought.

Nordschleife, Your diagram is great, but it confused me.

Yeah. It's absolutely mind-boggling, especially when you see the size of a man next to one.

Well, looking at Nordschlief's diagram, it won't even happen by the end of this year at what looks to be at least 50 floors.

P.S. QMS why'd you change you avatar and coolidge quote? It was the best.
