“Progress was good in July and with the completion of the piling works on schedule, the groundworks are now complete and the substructure can commence. The Podium piles are currently being broken down (hacked) to their cut of levels for the construction of pile caps and subsequently, the stub columns that will support ground beams and the All Day Dining area slab on Level 1 which will be completed this month.
On the North Tower, a similar sequence will be followed with the pile caps and ground beams being constructed. A significant operation will commence this month with the construction of the North Tower Core, which houses the lifts and the staircases as well as providing the structural stability to the tower. The core is founded on the bedrock and therefore the first operation is excavation down to the rock level.” – Stephen Bush
