Loads of steel going up today in the one corner.

Looks also more tha 6.5 m height also.

Is this to plan Cullwulla? Apologies for poor quality pic.time to invest in a new camera with a decent zoom.

Looks bigger but remember each beam is 6.4m but has an extra bit like 1-2m high, not sure about that figure. It may just be the angle and the distance which makes it look higher.

Its not the angle viewed I look out my living room each day from the same chair, and this is the tallest section yet.

The vertical column that went up today is on top of the steel that was placed yesterday, this has not been the case on previous floors.

This should be the base of the spire? Right!.
I am curious as to when are they going to begin installing the spire.
I don’t believe they can bring it from within; most of its parts have to be lifted
into place. (!?) And that means we will be able to see the process in action.

Are you saying that they are putting columns on top of an incomplete floor? They must be looking to speed up because they are way behind schedule. Do you still take note of what date each beam was put up?
