Here's a good question: After the outer cladding is finished, and something happens to a panel (cracked, broken, cloudy...) how will it be replaced? Build a scaffold up from the next lower sky garden ? Or maybe remove an inner cladding, then make a bridge to the outer ring?

That's also a good question. I assume that the window washing system will be unique. I can't imagine exactly how they will do that either.

They are still on schedule (going by the updated one) to do so. It's gonna take another week and a half to finish off the last two floors of supports, then another 10-12 days to disassemble the construction deck and get it up to the next truss. Once they get it onto the next truss cladding will begin. Once the cladding on the first section is finished podium construction will begin, and should be completed by mid-late next year, depending on the speed.

My guess is that there will be a rail around each truss belt that cleaning equipment stored inside the truss belt would move along.
I would assume that window washing equipment, presumably a crane of some sort, could also be used for fixing stuff.

SWFC is a stunning building! Must be the best looking modern building. What height is the Shanghai tower at now?

Last time it was a bit over 300m already. So maybe 320 now?
