Question

According to a short film about the ST project, levels within the truss belts will be housing heavy equipment like AC units, water pumps, power cabinets, mainframe computers, etc. From looking at those construction pictures, we can tell the truss belts were initially built in circles, and then some beams were welded to them to extend the truss belts outwards, forming the "sky floors."

My question is: if the supporting beams were welded to the truss belts as opposed to being cast as whole pieces with steel components in the trusses, how could the extended "sky floors" bear the weight of all the heavy equipment?

One would think welded steel beams have less strength and are more prone to fatigue. The weight of the extensions itself must already be enormous, not to mention the additional weight of the equipment.

They would be bolted on and then welded. Which would make it near as strong as whole pieces.

Also could you imagine them trying to get the pieces to the site and then lift them if they were whole pieces? Part of building a skyscraper is having to design the building so that it is well....possible to build.

So when is the estimated topping out? I understand it won't be complete for a while, but I want to see this beauty at it's full structural height sometime soon.

What will it look like by july 2012 in terms of height, if it is already 250m? I am going to shanghai july 2nd-11th. Will take some pics. How many floors can they do in 3 months at full construction pace?
