i hope for dark cladding actually. also i am pretty sure they had test cladding up on a little structure they build next to the hole like 2 years ago, would be cool if someone finds these pictures agan in this big thread.

edit:
found it with google search, but it doesn't direct me to the right page, probably because i have a different post/page setting:

sorry that i cannot give proper credit, hope the name in the picture itself is enough

I wonder if this will get even faster now that that they have hit the straight section where all of the floor plates should hopefully be identical.

I just read some pages of Chinese supertalls under construction. i realized bamboo scaffoldings are not widely used. i thought its a standard practice to wrap the building around with cover usually with green nets using bamboo scaffolding. just like in Hong Kong. Any idea why they are not used on these structures?

I'm not sure if this will answer your question but here's a link to an article by South China Morning Post discussing and giving some reasons on why there's a diminishing use of bamboo scaffolding during the construction of buildings.
