So many construction sites here on such a relative small area! I'd guess Imre has taken the photo from the top floors of Marina Heights.

The Marina 101 lot is at the bottom left, next to the growing Marina Pinnacle, isn't it? This site looks so small for a coming supertall! The square bases of Marina Pinnacle and the tower above (I don't know this one so far, can someone help?*) are connected so closely to the Marina 101 site, that some people could suffer from agoraphobia there when all the skyscrapers are finished...

But nevertheless I'm looking forward to see the first floors of Marina 101 in a few months...

*edit: I could help myself - it's the Sulafa Tower next to Marina 101, of course

Uh-oh... water is not exactly what I like to see here!!
Let this not be the beginning of an "Infinity Tower syndrome"! Marina 101 is placed further from the coastline than Infinity Tower, so this comes as a surprise to me.

Does the construction itself go on right now? If it has stopped, I'll wet the site even more with my tears (virtually) .
I really hope the suction of this small amount of water is still routine and doesn't lead to delay.

This amount of water is normal and no problem. Don't crap your pants.

Thanks for the all-clear! I think I can hold it back now.

What is the process for building the piles. Do they simply drill a x metre deep hole then pour the concrete? Or do those long steel dubes go down all the way as a formwork and get removed once the concrete has been poured? or do they do it as a stepped process a couple of metres at a time?

Thanks any insight would be great

It seems to me that there is much less rebar and what rebar there is, is much smaller than is typically seen in construction in the United States. Is this due to the difference in building codes or is it due to the anticipated conditions that the foundation is expected to encounter such as earthquakes, high winds etc.?

Do you use the same piling technique in the US?
