Weekly Update : January 20. 2014


Unlucky for me, we had a snowy day in Seoul today. I couldn't get a clear shots

Personally, I hate snowy weather. You know what I mean if you finished your military service. :P

The progress is rather slow compared to other 500m+ projects, and the cladding is rising simultaneously with the steel floors. That's why it seems to look the same every day...

Yes its rather slow, probably due to the special tapering core which might be more complex to construct. Just my guess, I'm no expert

Also the whole project and construction is managed and executed by lotte or companies related to lotte. Its never good when huge projects are managed by a single company with only one perspective on things. Involving an independent contractor would give the whole project more control, safety and transparency.
But lotte can probably save a lot of money by using their own construction firm and they keep total control and can avoid (or cover up) negative things that happen during construction.

I also heard that lotte construction has no experience with such gigantic projects, which might be a reason for the slower progress i guess.

I'd rather see more development in Seoul than less, too, but development for development's sake is no good. And as you say, we're all on this forum because we think skyscrapers are neat, but at least I, personally, would rather no buildings taller than 10 stories if that made life better for everyone. It doesn't, and I'm thankful for that, but you should (and seem to) understand that more skyscrapers isn't necessarily better; it's the societal development that typically leads to them being built that's good.

To be honest, I'd love to see Korea progress socially. Tall buildings and the like are great, don't get me wrong, but there are a few things in Korean society that need to get with the times if they really want to be a shining light in Asia.

Anyways, thanks for the pics Antares! The weather was shocking yesterday. I made the mistake of venturing out of my office as the worst of it came across.... it also made my 출근 this morning a very challenging task... Everything looks much more 'winter' though, which is nice.

Update from today, Jan 21st:

The formwork of the core went up one floor, now you can see the mark of the 55th floor. Before, the yellow formwork on top of the core was where the 55F mark is.



Short info: The yellow formwork that surrounds the core climbs in a 4-day circle together with the core cranes, which means that every 4 days one floor is added.

The formwork comes from Doka, a company from my small hometown here in Austria. They are world leaders in formworks for highrises, as well as complex bridge and tunnel constructions. They also provided the formwork for Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
Here is some info from Doka about LWT and the technology used: http://www.doka.com/web/references/index.me.php#11226

Now I'm proud that a company from my tiny hometown also contributes to this awesome project!

Looking looking good. After a few months, this will beat NEATT as the tallest building.
