Hi all.

Good to see some concrete happening.

The rebar cages from prev. updates look to only extend to 3 meters from the top. The pile that looks filled seems to be poured to that level as well. I thought it was a bit out of the ordinary to not have the rebar sticking out the top for future tie in to the rebar for the raft.

So two possibilities as I see it :
1 - They add more rebar that will stick out the top and do another pour.
2 - There will be no raft and the piles are more like footings for columns.

Neither option seems reasonable ... - but seem par for the course on this project.

This one keeps the brain cells communicating ...


Ray.

Or maybe they will do the raft and remaining pile parts in one concrete pour to make it compact and more stable.

I think they're going to dig the remaining parts of the hole down to the top of the piles. The foundation raft needs some space too.

Yep, thats another possibility especially since the way it is now there is no way to build 5 or even 4 underground levels because of lack of space.

Hi Wap.

Ahh yes - option number 3.
I posted on this pages ago but I put it on the back burner because of the way they did the piles, with the RC rings.

Actually, sounds possible to break the rings as they dig. No stranger than ST using explosives to break the big rings that were around the big hole, as they were doing the top down work on the lower levels.

Both methods seem ass backword but there has to be a good reason in someones mind.


Ray.

On the world's tallest skyscraper wikipedia page Ping'an is still listed as on hold. It should be changed.

I welcomed you

What are the dimensions of this hole and how do they compare to the Shanghai Tower foundation? Is this one bigger? This is supossed to be 5 million square feet of floor space as opposed to ST's 4.
