It has not stopped, areas to be worked are now becoming limited due to external elevators, spire activity, and mechanical floor equipment access.

Looks like quotes are not working, I was responding to cladding work not being stopped

Probably this means we have a very surprising top-out at the moment at 818.0 meters!!!



Edit: hmm it looks like only half a tier or something is jacked up instead of the total 9.7 meters... We'll wait for your pics OTR

Is it somebody possible to capture the spire lifting by a video camera to make a short movie clip? Want to see how the spire is moving upward.

Would be nice!
