Update: 2:30 a.m. local time, November 16th: there are still 14 workers in the yellow outfits working at ground level!

Edit: as of 8 a.m. now, local time, there are at least 20 workers that I can see in the Webcam image. So it may be that shifts are being increased at the tower, to increase progress!

Hi all.

WHO'S WITH ME?
Unless someone posts a more detailed drawing we have to go by the section drawing we have:
1 - Only a few levels are labeled with heights with many between that are not labeled.
2 - Some levels between the labeled levels can be extrapolated if they all look to be the same height by dividing the total height by the number of levels - but this is only approximate.
3 - It looks to me the levels from 20 to 37 are all 4.00 meters high (153.95 minus 81.95 divided by 18 = 4.00).
4 - We are at the floor of level 26 now = 105.95 as measured from the floor of level B1M which is 0.00 as per the plans (the structure is another 7.575 high if levels B1 and B2 are counted but they are considered lower levels as per the plans and are not added to any drawings).
5 - levels 38 and 42 to 65 also look to be 4.00 meters but 39 to 41 are just guess work.

While that chart is pretty nice for absolute height from the slab, shouldn't the 0 be set to be even with Level 1's floor height, since it was mentioned that the two basement levels are ~-7.5 meters? But if we are going for an absolute height, I figure the chart is fine since in this case there's no real excavation for basements proper. Everything B level will be covered by podium, correct? It'd be pretty similar to the BK at that rate except nothing underground.

Hi Real.

Looks to me that level B1M is 0.00 not level 1 since level 1 is 5.90 meters.

On another note, I see I have 2 other drawings and one shows the height of every level up to level 60 or so but it is very blurry. Both drawings show the lower levels labeled differently and include a concourse level so I think they are earlier versions of the plans. They do show the heights rounded to the meter (as in 82.0 instead of 81.95 for level 20) but I should be able to adjust accordingly and make a spreadsheet to level 60 or so similar to the one I made for the BK. Maybe we will get another drawing so I can make it for the entire structure at some point.

I will work on that as time permits and post once complete.


Ray.

Slowly it's time for the climbing formworks at the floors. Hopefully that will happen until the end of the year.

Up to +/- level 4, the floor slabs seem to be completed.
But they can not go up with the scaffolding works all the way to the top.

From +/- floor 8, the floor slabs in the core are present?

Anyway, the series-construction of the floor slabs should start soon.


Next than the cladding.
Which I do not expect earlier than 2017...

Cladding should start next year if nothing goes wrong.
