I think this is one of the most awesome skyscraper designs ever. What a massive structure- so much steel!

You can play tennis on those plates.
I like the visible progress made her while it's this height. It's harder to notice progress when it's already 400m up.
Btw, notice how that pulley is larger than the men.

Good to see some horizontal bracing / floors starting to form. Was getting pretty high there without any lateral support.

I missed checking this thread for 2 weeks, already the exterior steel columns are being connected to the main core.... Good stuff.

Great pics... Does anybody know how far down the supercolumns go and what they are resting on? Cement? Bedrock?(heard there wasn't a lot of bedrock there) those columns are just massive and theres 8 it appears

It's all resting on some of the biggest piles you will ever see in your life, and all dug by hand believe it or not. If you go back a year or two in the thread you will see some very interesting pictures.

They used the same technique for the super columns as well but there aren't many pictures of them as they were under the 'ring'

Oh and they "are" the piles

How deep did those pile core holes go down? 30 metres?

I believe the local soil is soft and loamy with deep bedrock farther down. I would think they went far enough to couple to the bedrock, but I am no geologist...

I have no exact numbers but I'd say 1,5 meter in total.
