At least they're wearing some clothes now..They were almost naked when they were digging holes for the piles.

It must be unbearable ! Temperature now in Shenzhen is between 30 and 35 degrees and it must be lot hotter inside the hole close to those huge steel structures heated by the sun.

And with this 3rd layer of steel structure they'll almost reach ground level!

I can imagine. A few hours on the sun, this steel won't be touchable with the bare hands.

The new project manager must be coming from a EHS background, now all the workers wear coverall, hard hat, and gloves, fall protection always in place, etc.

The ramp in the second hole gave access for all the digging machines so I suppose it had to be that deep.

Hi Bush.

HaHa - BushMuncher ...
There have been some innovative handles on this forum alright - this is yet another.

The hole isn't for the foundations - it is left there from the podium lower levels top down construction. The mall will still need a foundation, albeit much less robust than the main structure. The hole just allows this to be done (relatively) efficiently.

Man! This site sure got in shape after a month or two! That steel's shooting right up and looks pretty darned robust (obviously). Excited to see this rise. Even more excited to see if the beautiful facade is as good as the renders make it appear to be.

the cladding was put on the side in a little test structure to see lighting effects and stuff on it. looked pretty good. i am positive that the facade will look even better than on the renders

Visited Coco Park across the site yesterday, yes seems a lot of activity on the main tower but not on the second ~307 m one. The other side of Futian near the twin towers of Excellence Century Plaza still might have space for one slim ~700 m tower to mirror the Ping'an for some symmetry
