Will there be a core rising first? There is still a huge hole in the centre....

I believe a structural diagram was posted awhile back that said once the core rises, it can't exceed the supporting walls by more than 10 floors. I'd imagine this tower will rise in a similar way as BK; Main Core, then wing walls / edge walls, then floor slabs.

Hi all.

Hi Shrubit.

The BK also used a non-climbing set of forms to pour the initial 2 levels (5.25 meters high - Raft level [my term] and level B2). As is the case here, this gives them something to attach the climbing forms to.

I'm always watching, even if a proposal has tiny chances to rise but yes, look at that progress the nonbelievers will soon be silenced. This has high chances of going up. Only weird and unfortunate circumstances can stop it now and even then burj Khalifa had problems in the dubai financial crisis and still made it to the top because it was just to big and too far into construction to fail

Go ahead, be childish and report him. It wouldn't be the first time. All the Moderators, including our founder, know him, and are well aware of his use of Smilies. He's actually cut back a great deal due to the complaints of a few cry babies. He's not doing anything wrong and SSC has no rules for the amount of Smilies one can use in a single post. If it bothers you that much, feel free to block him, and then you won't see any of his posts

Yeah, I guess I misspoke in my above post. I thought he was complaining about the use of Smilies, but in fact he is complaining about the use of similes. I honestly have no clue what the hell that is

You didn't misspeak. What you said was perfectly valid. He just spelt it wrong, because I don't see any similes in Chuck's post...

But i guess it'll take at least until the end of october until they can pour the first floor with the climbing formwork. But then this will fly up

Quite right. Smiles might lead to laughing. Perhaps even high fives, hugging and loud outbursts.

Life is much too serious for things like that.



(It's so far between I get to act like a 12-year-old girl. I have to do it in moderation not to get carried away)

Hoola! Descargué el modelo y lo reubiqué en la posición correcta, en las propiedades del modelo que viene dentro del .kmz en la barra lateral, automaticamente el modelo se pone en modo libre para reubicarlo, rotarlo, y cambiarlo de tamaño, y lo puse como se supone que quedaria, solo haria falta crear un modelo de toda la obra completa!
