What i wonder is how are they going to install inner cladding? Shouldn't it have been easier to install inner cladding first?

It's always better to work in a stable environment.

Although it doesn't looked like it, there is actually a lot of room to work with within the two curtain walls.

Much easier to work on inner clading,, NO WIND, but less acess to the Cranes..

this cladding is very interesting, the color and the texture are significantly different at different time of the day or different angle to the light source.

V.A. more cladding

It's a pity the colour of the glass is pretty much the same as SWFC and Jin Mao, and most of the other towers around it for that matter. Makes for a dull, monochrome skyline.

I wonder how they are going to get all the inner Cladding in place? If they finish the outter Cladding before bringing the inner Cladding up the building using the cranes. Then they will have to get all that glass up the building using the elevators. Which would be very time consuming.

they are doing the inner cladding at the same time- see that green glass above the second platform? That's inner cladding

they have separate cranes for the inner and the outer cladding.

They might very well stock the inner cladding pannels inside the building, and procede with it at their own pace.
