This has absolutely nothing to do with the Kingdom Tower, however how do you get a signature.

You could paste the photo of small size with a hyperlink to a bigger size. That would be better.

How hot is it there now? Is that why they are working in the basement where it's cooler?

it's 46 degrees. But that's not a reason for working down.

To really get moving, you need several things at the op and at the bottom. At the top you need climbing cranes to be all set, climbing forms to set and ready, and climbing Concrete pumps and booms. At the bottom, you need places where trucks can easily deliver loads for the cranes on leg, and another where concrete can be delivered for each of the concrete pumps at the top. Once you get the pipes full and start pumping that concrete, you want to keep going. It takes a lot of work to empty and clean those lines, and get even worse if things fall behind and it begins to set in pipes.

I always wondered how they manage to get that concrete all the way up to the top of the building and after i figured that out i wondered how the heck the concrete doesnt harden inside the tubes...? And if it does, how do they get it liquefied again or what happens?
