I thought it already is.

The core is BIG, the building is BIG, the columns are BIGG

The super columns on Ping An are also encased in rebar, which concrete is then poured, hence the frames around the columns. The holes in the steel are meant for the concrete to evenly distribute between the inside and outside of the column, allowing the columns to have minimum movement. This is all done for integrity and weight distribution of the tower.

You can't compare this structure to the Canton Tower when those columns were not encased in concrete and rebar.

yes i question is only why the holes begin first on 10-20m, is inside rebar, and do they fill the columns when the tower is topped out, or at the same time they coat the columns??

I thought these 2 were in a different block. Regardless, both will be surpassed before the end of this year.

Yes the internal portion of the columns is poured when the exterior is poured, the concrete will go inside the holes of the steel either way. It would not be an effective method to pour the exterior,then pour the inside after top out? This whole entire purpose is to connect the outer concrete with the inner concrete of the steel to form a bond to minimize movement of the steel, like I said already.

of course they're pouring it part by part. otherwise it probably would take forever to dry out
