Updates between 5th of September and 9th of September

Here's an update for the past week. There was a little mix up with some of the photos so not all of them are shown for each of the days, but the general progress is there. The 'no work' day photo looks really cool with all the cranes pointing straight up!

5 September -
- hotel core has jacked up since last Thursday
- slab poured on north side of hotel core today
- reinforcing & post-tensioning ducts going in around commercial core for Basement 1
- res core has jacked up since Thursday
- concrete pumping arm is missing - this happened sometime last week
- formwork for Basement 4 has nearly surrounded lift core
- eastern part of Podium area Basement 4 has been poured, western part looks ready to pour
- as I write this, a mobile concrete pump is arriving on site, possibly to pour it this afternoon


6 September -
- formwork build continuing around hotel core. I've lost track of what level it's up to!
- formwork going up over the substation area north of the commercial core
- still laying reinforcing & post-tensioning ducts south and east of the commercial core
- Basement 4 formwork platform nearly complete around res core
- last bit of Basement 4 has been poured in the podium area, with Basement 3 formwork spreading


7 September -
- substation area north of commercial core is almost completely covered by formwork
- columns being poured in podium area
- reinforcing being placed around res core


8 September -
Looks like no work today.


9 September -
- pouring columns around hotel core
- basement 1 east & south of commercial core poured this morning (it looks like there's a section that's going to be thicker, that will be poured with the western part)
- still laying reinforcing west of res core
- Basement 4 formwork in the podium area. Worth a look at the plans to figure out what's going on, the various carpark access ramps start getting complicated from here.
