I think it would be foolish to put fake windows just for the show and lose the best views and most precious floor space with that... Maybe all of the steel structures have not been shown yet in those frame/ exoskeleton pictures ?

[QUOTE=Ch.W;121980000]That's exactly how it works.


Here are some techniclal date from the Liebherr Crane 357:

When used on very high buildings the 357 HC-L may be fitted with an optional powerful 3-speed FC hoist gear which develops 110 kW or even 160 kW for hoist heights of up to 1,100 m. This means that large loads can be moved economically at speeds of up to 240 m/min. This has a particularly dramatic effect for high hoisting heights in 1-fall operating mode.


Sorry that I haven't inove Posts to give the link. See liebherr-bauma.com

Het end walls of the 3 wings are "blind", so certainly will NOT get windows.
You can see that already on the concrete structure that becomes visible under the formwork.

I assume it will get glass panelling.
But these are certainly not windows.

I'm sure they will develop the area around it,but that building looks very lonesome out there by itself.

Keep up the updated diagrams. They are greatly appreciated.Can the floor elevations be added to them.

Architectural design and structural design aren't the same thing. There are different ways to construct a building. The render in question might not match the structural design deployed, but if the structural enginers would have chosen a different way to build it than the render might have been a correct rapresentatiin.

In short, it doesn't mean the render was done by kindergatder kids, it simply means that it was done before the structural design was complited

I believe that nighttime render was also back in the final conceptual stages; it's common for things to be fast tracked then, once actually finalized and constructed, the final design to be a little different. In a high profile property like this, we have conceptual renders matching the final product nearly exactly, but like Altin said, it depends at what stages things are being done at.

Either way once the floorslabs go up and the core tapers more, we know for sure. What may not make sense to the average person, may make complete sense from say, a structural engineering point of view as well. So whatever we end up with, I'm sure there's a perfectly good reason for it to be done that way.

(See the KT diagram: floor level 14 is at 57,925 m; level height is 4 meters, so the next level is 62 m).

The diagram is the most detailed info we have on the levels.
Nothing more detailed was published so far.
