the top floor is about 8m wide. tier 24 or 739m high.
these steel floors can be reached by internal staircase which rises from way down at levl 162 or 624m level.thats a climb of over 100m by staircase.
above this you need to climb the spires internal ladder which gets you to landings at tier 25, 26 and 27. a small door (5ft) can be opened from the spire and you walkout on these tiers. they are small terrace about size of shower cubical.

Where did you get this schedule from? Looking at where they are now it sounds very optimistic that all the cladding will be done by July.

"Top of the world" - I love that.

Excellent work Culwulla, so very detailed.
It must have taken you quite some time to draw these diagrams, thank you for sharing them.

I think the steel work is completed. Today the steel was taller then the base of the crane (where it swings around), so now the crane has very limited room for movement.

I wouldn't mind being the guy who maintains the beacons. I'm sure they probably have a rule against going all the way out the hatch, but who could resist sitting on top of that thing at least once? That 85 odd meter climb would be a good workout. too.
