More of the lift shafts are starting to pop up

I've received quite a detailed update from Bernard, a reader who has contributed in the past. Lots of work is going ahead at the site. It's great to see the site from this vantage point, really puts it into perspective. Many thanks for this contribution!

There is a time lapse video at the end of this post showing the construction activity between Monday 7th to Thursday 10th of December, check it out!
First, the site overview. Two large excavators were removed during the week - on Thursday night, I believe, as they're still there at the end of the timelapse on Thursday morning.

Second, a closeup of the liftcore for the hotel. I suspect the brown platforms and pink columns are part of the jacking formwork for building the whole lift core, though I don't know for sure. You can also see the basement floor slab that has been poured in the far corner, and the preparations for pouring the next section (the black plastic area).

Third, the lift core area for the commercial tower. The formwork piled up here was used to cast the lift core for the hotel (you can see it being removed and placed here in the timelapse). There's also some drainage trenches that were dug during the week, with pipework being laid.

Finally, a closeup of the pit where the residential tower liftcore will go. They've poured concrete and dug it out again twice so far in the two large square foundation pads on the other side of the pit, obviously something is causing issues, I suspect rock fracturing due to the blast.

This is the time lapse…
