Updates between 21st of August and 25th of August

Another great update from Bernard. A crane has been partially disassembled this week and more weekend work goes on, even on Sundays.

21 August -
- hotel: L25 SW slab poured, N reinforcing being laid. Pouring the lift core.
- office: more formwork supports going up for S slab
- res: more of the climbing formwork has been removed
- the crane in the podium area has been relocated to the black support frame, as expected. Well, the tower has, the actual crane from the top is nowhere to be found!
- Showing both the old and new crane towers. Can't see in this photo, but there are some large black metal beams under the concrete slab, where the new crane support frame is bolted through.

22 August -
- hotel: L25 forms for blade columns going up to SW, reinforcing for slab to N
- office: still building formwork supports to S of core
- res: new parts for the climbing formwork arriving, I think (being piled up SE of the lift core
- no additional construction of the crane in the podium area


23 August -
- hotel: L25 North has been poured, formwork going up for L26 SW
- office: not much change since yesterday
- res: dismantling of the climbing formwork on the core continues


24 August -

- hotel: L29 visible on the core. Formwork build for L26 continuing. Rails for work platforms to fit wall cladding being installed.
- office: formwork laid E of core, not much visible progress elsewhere
- res: more of the climbing formwork removed. I think, looking at the plans (Plans6.pdf, from p.10), this is being reconfigured to include poured walls between the core and some of the large columns near the edge of the tower (you can see some reinforcing poking up from the slab both NE & SW of the core)
