It actually does .... especially considering that it is done by a different contractor than the one who did the piling (so you also have to add the time needed for the de-mobilizing and leaving of the former, and then the arrival and mobilizing of the later)

ok, that's a good point. But nevertheless, when the new contractor is starting the progress should be relatively fast.

True. Especially since this not a particularly tough site from logistic point of view -> lots of space everywhere. They could transport all the necessary equipment to the site long before the former contractor is done with his job

I don't think the new contractor can get that kind of access to the site before the piling one leaves.

Plus, digging, revealing the pile heads, breaking them, straightening and cutting the rebar, leveling the entire site, isn't as much of an easy and fast job as you guys believe.

Just look at other projects like Wuhan greenland. It didn't took very long there. Plus at KT they don't have to dig as deep.
