can someone explain this unusual sight? so are they going to build more things on the first floors now, because it sure can't rise with that container hut on top

The office is mounted on the climbing formworks, which will rise up as the core is raised.

What you see on top of the core is a big platform that sits on top of or is even part the jump form that is used to let the core grow. Every time the core grows another floor it there will be a jump of the jump form that also raises the platform

So it doesn't matter that there are these container sheds on top of it, they will just go up together with the growth of the core.

I can't see if the cranes are also attached to the this platform, if they are they don't have to grow or jump them separately as they will just move up together with the jump form.

The most likely reason why it slowed down was to build this platform, that will make the construction go faster now it's completed. Since it's so big the core had to grow out of the ground before it could be installed. The original scaffolding around the core had to be removed build this platform, that has the new scaffolding around the core hanging of it.

So it's actually full speed ahead with this tower. Just look at the number of people working on the site, you won't see that many people working on a construction site for a project that has been put on hold.

thanks for the explanations, now it all makes sense and we can hope that the construction can speed up. GZIFC was extremely fast rising, so i am hopeful
