amazing that u willingly shared this pic shadowraper hahaha

think that they still need to install some heavy machinery in the mechfloors and blocking them up would be unrational, we will just have to wait and enjoy the slow steel-rise until then, but the building will look so much better with them clad, cant wait

(spell it rather : ÞRÁNDHEIMUR)

Hehe, dude that is pathetic, but fun :P. Looks sort of like Las Vegas but higher, low-density.

Hi all.

Here is what was supposed to be the steel erection schedule.




As we can see they are not anywhere close to this pace.
Whether this will effect the scheduled middle of July beginning of spire lifting, the end of October top out, or the middle of August '09 completion dates remains to be seen.

Jeeze the pace now seems pathetic.
I concede that installing a spire at 600 meters is harder than building one at the ground.

What happens next is we wait and wait for a new schedule and more progress.

Because it doesn't effect the MEP (Mechanical/Electrical/Plumbing) and interior plastering and tiling work. Plus is often more convenient to have open spaces where machineries have to be installed.

However I noticed yesterday that frames were being installed on the first set of mechanic floors so the special type of cladding for those floors might start soon.

August 2009 is still optimistic, as I see the progress better if we say Q4 2009-2010

Thanks Imre. The steel structure looks pretty complex. I probably wouldn't be surprised now if the steel sections take long than the previous concrete sections. I see a lot of criss-crossing and bracing that looks like would take a while to piece together.
