Sorry to tell you he`s not a steel fixer but a steel erector,there`s a big difference. Ever worked on site?

I haven't been at work on a building site for 20 years, I'm afraid.

Thanks for the terminology tip, though.

Fixer/erector, I bet the man in the photo doesn't even know what he is.



The big white columns on the shard...will they continue all the way up or are they just for the base?

I would think he does know,Steel erector does as per photo, erects steelwork, steel fixer works with reinforcing bars to reinforce the concrete.You will find the fixers working on the slipform staging, the steel erectors will probably only have just started their work.

Re: the white columns, they look permanent but have no idea how far up the project they continue.

Im sure he does, he's just got an unfortunate face


This is coming up at an amazing rate of speed for a London build, are they expecting it to be like this for the whole project length?

Really fantastic photographs, thank you to the select few who keep everyone constantly updated and informed! I can't believe it's already visible from across the Thames.

Frankly he looks like he doesn't care what he is! A feckless youth if ever I saw one.

Anyway back to topic. Does this rapid progress since Christmas mean we are on, ahead of, or behind schedule?

I guess that depends on which schedule you look at, there have been quite a few since this was proposed...

I think there were a couple of small delays a few weeks back when the core stopped growing for a little while? I can't remember properly, either way it should still be done by the Olympics at this rate.
