I am not sure which building you are talking about? The Index, Liberty House or Islamic Bank Towers?

will they start cladding the steel sections, or will they finish the mechanical floors first?

Agreed.

I think there's couple or at least one column up at the back of the photo for 14th floor meaning it's 675.3 metres high.

its getting harder and harder to get a clear pic of whats happening on top because of its unreal height

Hi Culwulla, I need a better zoom lense, but for certain they have placed a small stub on the top section that is only about 1m in height. I will look during the course of today and see what else goes up.

Normally they won't clad the mechanical floors until most of the mechanical equipment has been installed. I've seen other buildings which have been designed to install the equipment through the roof which is lowered in but I can't see that being possible with this one.
