4. Close up on one of the hole



5. "Apart from the 12 large holes, there are lots of smaller holes like this with diameter at about 1.5m - 2m"

great one scion As for now everything as predicted. Large holes, nothing inside. Just wonder if thats their finall depth. The "small" holes also bring some of that element of mystery. Just nice that now at least we are quite up to date

Thanks for the update! Love it! I live so close to Pingan building but I can't take any of these pictures ;(
We can see that the pace is quite fast! That's good!

Hi all.

Thanks for posting Scion !!

Holy Moly ... - they haven't been sitting around ...

- Good lord ... the small frames ARE for manually getting dirt from out of the holes - see the 'buckets'. Who'ed of thunk it ... The poster from long ago had it right. Frick we've sent men to the moon - and now we dig piles by hand ... ? A joke but there must be a reason for this approach - something to do with U/G lines or subway ? (there was some talk of subway lines under this site, correct ?)

- Obviously there are no piles done previously where the 12 holes are being done.

- The question that comes to mind as Pat posted is - are these going to be piles per se, or more like footings. Depends on the depth they go to I reckon ... They are pouring concrete rings almost one under the other as they go suggesting they may go quite deep - perhaps to the 40 meters as posted a few pages ago.

- The small holes look to have been done by hand as well ? They are close to the columns that I presumed are already piles - maybe they're not. Maybe these will be the piles and the big pile rigs from months ago only went deep enough to pour the columns. If that is the case then all of the piling for the main structure and the podium will be done by caveman proceedure. (not quite, but really...? - by hand ...?)

Always interesting to see the different methods used to accomplish construction tasks - especially foundations.
I thought the ST had some cool techniques, but this project is breaking new ground - or is it 100 year old ground ...

Hi Yann.
Yes great pace indeed.

Hi Killer.


Ray.

wow, you guys notice one of the workers was almost naked? Only a pair of short shorts. Is that usually allowed in construction sites? A bit unsafe to say the least

With the skeleton levels, are they for car park for future usage?

Hi all.

And steel toe workboots too .....

I noticed the work attire on the guys that were doing the ST piling - the safety regs in China must be pretty laps.

In North America it doesn't matter how hot it is out - safety gear is mandatory.

If u r the construction worker working in humid 30-40 degree,u wont consider safety as your top priority, is not they the construction company not supplying working suit to them, they are the guys who choose to not wear them.

There should be some ventilation to cool the workers. If they wear too much clothing the heat will affect the concentration of the workers. The heat is just sweltering. Just shopping along Huahai Lu is hot enough, just imagine working in construction site.
As long as they have helmuts, and steel boots etc, that is enough.

Give the guy some break, at least he's wearing hard hat. This excavation method must have something to do with the nearby subway line, remember a few pages back there was an article talked about how the construction was halted waiting for the subway line's boring machine to pass through.

Its normal in China every summer, people pare down to the minimum - its part of the street culture (though slowly dying out due to Westernisation)
