With these new cranes in place I would expect to see the speed of the cladding increase significantly.

Then what are these new cranes in place for? I just figured since they are going to be removing the cranes from the core to make way for the steel structure work, that they would move them to the wings to continue the cladding installation. If I don't have it right please help me understand how these cranes are gonna work.

Jeeeeees sometimes its hard to believe these posts. I posted (1018) what was happening before the boom was in place and a diagram of the dismantling process, some people want to rewind and look at the history of this thread or do we need to post pictures only for the benefit if the thickos?

is the favorite # in the region
But the height of the tower won't be 777m?!?!

Helghast, Including today and yesterday nothing on site, stored or being prepared with regards to the steelwork. Not the norm for maintaining a schedule that has considerable penalty clauses.

The triangular configuration in the middle will have one purpose only.

To jack up the spire that is already assembled within the structure, and will progress with the height as its constructed.
