Yes. And they didn't work at all yesterday. But now the concrete pumps are erected again so the core should start rising later today.

Thanks. I'm really more interested in the flooring and the cladding right now, so as long the core keeps rising at a good pace, it's okay.

I got some excellent photos on Sunday - and they've now got about 8 panes of glass on the side. The glass looked amazing - really reflected the sky well! I'll try and post them tonight.
