Surely it will make just as much sense to put it down a lift shaft - no need for any bracing and it gets easier all round coverage.

Yes it could be done, if the shaft is big enough because it would have to accomodate the crane mast and the slipform rig to form the walls of the shaft the crane is in.

For a driver being able to see down to the ground he would be better off to one side.

Yea, its been shown before but always good to see it again. Interestingly it shows the central crane being installed at about the same height as the core is in reality so furthering evidence that we're about to see TC5.

We've seen this before. It's not very accurate either, it has the steelwork up to level 15 by now. I think this is just a wishfull thinking. if it's an accurate work plan then they are woefully behind schedule.

If its not treated it wil show signs of rust very quickly. Once embedded into the building it'll be fine. Honest!
