There is SO MUCH going on right now. The core shrinking, the third truss belt, the cladding structure platform, and the supercolumn/floor construction all make this overwhelmingly exciting.


Guys, let's have a poll: Which process are you rooting for the most??

Personally, my eyes are glued to the platform at the moment.

Isn't cladding meant to start some time in may? I will be in Shanghai near the end of may and should be able to witness the beginning of the process

Whoops, I'm afraid that according to the newest schedule, we won't see any cladding until June.

May be the glass panels will be installed in may but the curtain wall structure is u/c already. It's clearly visible on the pics

Where?? I can only see some cables hanging down from the platform, which I had assumed were for guiding the platform straight.

Lets see. On the photo below you can see pipe being lowered to the platform...



...on this one more pipes waiting to be lowered...



...and on this some of the pipes already installed.




So you see the work is clearly going on the platforms. If the schedule for glass is June like Nordschleife mentioned then I bet they will first install part of the structure (if not all) of the current section and then start with the glass. Mark my words on that one

I think you're right. Because of the weight of the glass the supporting structure has to be finished before the first glass panel can be installed.
