A while ago I posted what I called a double exposure of some early work at the site.

Thanks to Helghast (and Solange who posted them on Picasa) I now have both of them seperately.

Not a big deal to most here but here is one of them. It is taken just after excavation and the final dewatering system was in place (they would have had to set up an initial dewatering system before excavation). They are in the initial stages of setting up for piling. I dated it 04 01 (Jan 04). I have some shots from before and after the site and area were cleared and levelled but this one fills in a big gap.



Here is a shot of the raft pour that clearly shows it was done in 4 pours (the 3 wings then the core). I have 3 others of the pour and in 2 it can be seen they weren't pouring the whole raft but this shows things clearly.



Great find Helghast !

I just thought of something. To be accurate they should rename the public viewing galary called 'At the Top' as 'Near the middle' haha! That's kinda where abouts it is. It's a lot nearer the middle than the top of the building. Isn't it around 500m?

Hi KSA.

Level 39 as per the CTBUH official measure which starts at level B1, is at 147.90 meters.
Here is page 10 (of 13) of my plan and my labelled render to help illustrate.
Click the render then click again in the new window for much much larger.
