UPDATE: As of mid-day today, they were lifting up from the ground the columns for the next level. They were shorter though, shorter then a regular floor so expect a reduced floor height, maybe 3.2 meters only.


EDIT: Culwulla's diagram (which I know it's accurate ) shows the next floor height at just 3 meters and that would match exactly what I saw being lifted.

Altin: 3 metre columns now in place, exactly as I saw it last night so they must have had a fit up problem and taken back down, anyway another addition to the BD height..

No; there is no relation at all.

The seemingly slow process is because these floors will support a 210 meters tall structure that is to be build on top of them. Without a central core, will be these first floor that will transfer the forces between the two sections (concrete down, steel up) and make sure the entire tower structure acts as one, so logically these first floors will be very complicated and should be build with extreme precision.

There is nothing to worry about.

There is no steel delivery problem. The stock is already in Eversendai's work yards.

True. I will rather have the steel section built in two years than in two months and in another two months see it fall from the concrete part.

Let the guys take their time, they (probably) know what are they doing.
