Btw Rody if you'll have the chance please do ask engineers what those small holes are for because I'm quite intrigued by them.

I don't think so. Not until this type of preliminary piling test is out of it and the foundation takes off , I doubt we can say it is officially under construction.

Why not? Did you have a look at the night time photo with all of the reo tubes? Maybe you won't believe until you see a picture of the tubes being inserted into the holes and being filled with concrete.

It looks good enough for me to go into the U/C section.

Test piles have been constructed and tested a year ago. This pilling is for the towers foundation so it goes to the U/C section.
