Is the white structure just in front of the main core a concrete pump? To do the concrete pour for the base of the tower?

Core has risen a fair bit over the weekend. Up to the 4th floor now. 38 to go!

Will this core subsequently displace Biggy McBigbugger's dominance over on Colmore?

Wow! It's really starting to make its presence felt. The first landmark in construction, for me at least, will be when the core is visible from the Library roof garden.

From this morning








It's difficult to tell from the following picture, but the core is now poking above the surrounding structures. Right in the middle of the two cranes at the bottom you can see lights on the slipform
