Updates between 8th of May and 19th of May

This is a combined update from Bernard for the past two weeks, since there was little activity the week earlier.

9 May -
- another day, another floor on the hotel… :-) Currently doing the fourth floor above that thick slab
- some very tall columns have been poured for the commercial tower! Scaffolding going up to support the slab formwork
- pouring the slab East of the res tower, formwork nearly finished for the west half
- formwork being built for the podium area. Looks like a complicated slab, with some pretty deep cast-in beams. This may be the last slab pour for the podium area.


15 May -
- reinforcing being laid atop the hotel tower. Now on the 5th level above the transition slab
- formwork being laid on the scaffolding north of the commercial core
- post-tensioning ducts being laid west of the res core
- formwork build continuing in the podium area. Looks like those cast-in beams are going to be very deep.


Here's a picture of the glass curtain wall being put up.

17 May -
- formwork already going up for next floor at SW of hotel, looks ready to pour to north
- pouring hotel core
- scaffolding and formwork expanding over north side of commercial tower
- pouring slab on west side of res core
- still building formwork in podium area, with post-tensioning ducts being laid in eastern part. Looks like there might be a significant height difference between parts of this slab.
