It's only when you see people in the building that you realise how mind bogglingly HUGE this building is!

Yes. But you just see them at close up shots. At wide angle pics they're not really visible

Many Thanks to _Forum_ for the info and links, this tower uses aspects of several different structural systems in it's structure, the video that you posted, was most helpfull in understanding this tower's stucture, allthough i could not understand a single word in the narrative, stopping at (allmost all) of the illistrated parts, allowed me an almost complete understanding of this tower's structural composition,

I knew when i seen the base iron begin at the bottom of the hole, that this tower was going to be one to watch, and with all the great photos by you and others, it's allmost as if i'm there !!!

Again many thanks !!

Yes, but no sign of it yet except the small piece of test cladding.

What you see in the second picture of #6541 might be the start of a monorail for the installation of facade elements (the steel parts below the level on which you see the workers, what the workers are installing might be a protection against stuff falling down from above)
