Double posting... sorry . Well, so here's another of mine:
1) Thanks a lot to ALL photographers here, you give us daily joy
2) I enjoy watching the construction of the top even more, since they started the steel section - you can see the progress much quicker, as the top u/c floors are not hidden anymore, compared to the concrete work.

I think he's too busy to post them. You could always post them for him, since you have enough free time to post 25 times a day.

It's more like 50 per day. Half of the posts get deleted.

No, it's just that the third floor has a mezzanine floor. So instead of a single 6 meter floor, it's divided into 2 three meter ones.


Edit: See Culwulla's diagram in post 3521 for more understanding.
