Hi all.

Hi Sale.

Thanks for the shots.
Both of the "sharp" ends of "The Offices" (prev. called the office annex) had rods sticking out at each level - not sure of their function, aesthetics I imagine. In these shots we can see they have completed the top 2 levels with sunshades on both sides of the rods. Looks good though I guess the change is more funtional.

I noticed in your (and Gerald's) night shots from 2 days ago the night lighting for the workers has moved further up the structure. A month ago areas 4 and 5 (residences and luxury residences) were 90 to 95 % lit up at nights with areas 2 and 3 below (Armani residences and hotel residences)and area 6 above (boutique offices)having only a few lights on. I figure this is because 2 and 3 are (mostly) completed and 6 not being concentrated on yet with 4 and 5 being heavily worked on.

Now it appears area 4 has fewer lights on with 5 and 6 having many on. My take on this is they are working on the last 2 areas heavily. Getting closer to completion of the whole of the works and handover completion - should be in 2010 I presume.

Another thing that comes up in my geeky mind is punchout and commissioning. The schedule had the different areas to have their test and commissioning done as they were completed with their preintegration checks done shortly after that. Then the integrated test and commissioning for the entire structure was to be done after that. These tests involve flushing x % of the toilets at once and turning all the lights on at once - that kind of thing.

I guess now with the way they are handing over an area at a time the final integration test and commissioning won't be done on a structure wide basis.
