Thanks for all these updates Altin. Are they testing the foundation with these concrete blocks? I've seen it on serveral sites in Dubai, but never seen it here in Holland.

no, no
these are fun blocks, used to entertain the workers, they build fun shaped things with them untill they are told they can start work on the tower!

seriously though, i have seen them a lot in dubai, maybe they put them around the edge of the foundation???

They are used to test the laoding on the first pile which is the test pile. there is a device that measures lateral forces as well as the point loading . Soil cant be too go there and the geotech report obviously wasent conclusive as the pile size and depth

No sign board yet, but they had moved aside the concrete blocks so the piling work should start soon.
