I'll change it into 'Prep' which stands for preparation works.

Makes sense, but why is it under 'proposed' if site prep is taking place?

Actually ground work is more accurate then site prep, since the piling was already completed.

piling = foundations (more or less)

Anyway, untill more serious stuff start happening, keeping it in this section is the right thing to do.

We don't have the status ground work in the World Development News Forums.

@Face81, anything except for U/C belongs to the proposed section. That's also Prep, On Hold, Pro, App etc. Only T/O, Com and U/C are in the U/C section.

No, they are right, this is under piling/ pile excavation for the actual tower foundation. That counts as u/c!
