The pace of the glass is incredible,, seems like they never take a break,, Easily a full row very 2 days, and they're Doing 2 sets, inner and outter, You can't tell me there's more ppl working on this than 1WTC.. Not being an ass, but what the hell is the problem with 1WTC, hell 4WTC has been topped out for 6 months, and the glass isn't even close to roof level? What Gives?

Well it is a very wide building, so it's easier for more work to go on in parallel.
That fact makes me wonder why more skyscrapers aren't built with such a wide cross-sectional area. It makes more efficient use of space, both during use AND during construction.

Probably because it's reeeeally expensive. First, you need cities that have the space, and second, this has to be one of the heaviest buildings out there right now. The engineering behind the foundation work (especially here, on this Shanghai mud) must be super complicated.

Thanks for the up-to-date pictures kix111 !

Just in case you don't know, using a polarizing filter (circular) in daylight conditions will improve the image quality significantly ( especially for ST ).

For more information, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polariz..._(photography) .

Is this hole in the cladding entrance for the bmu? I was lately suggesting that bmu's can be allocated at each belt truss level, and those vents along the perimeter looks like air vents for air conditioning but they also looks like they would allow bmu's to move around the building. Can anybody confirm or deny?

That seems reasonable. I don't see another way of cleaning all that glass

Now try to figure out how to clean the inner glass with all those pipes in the way. Scissor lifts for each sky lobby?

USA has more liability issues that China. Also the USA has to deal with the Unions more so than in China.

Could it be possible that it's there for large equipment such as air handlers to be hoisted into position? Items that are too large for the elevator shaft.

Pretty much this. There are many more bureaucratic checks in North American construction

Thanks for the photos Kix. The facade is heavenly. Nothing as beautiful had ever been done before.
