Concrete in which steel is embedded in such a manner that the two materials act together in resisting forces. The reinforcing steel—rods, bars, or mesh—absorbs the tensile, shear, and sometimes the compressive stresses in a concrete lift cores. Thirty per cent of the steel structure that will give the structure its spherical shape has been constructed. This steel frame will rise up 23 storeys and is connected to two large concrete cores to transfer the loads of the exterior weight to the central concrete cores. Overall, 93% of the design is finalised and around 35% of the construction is complete. This status has been achieved with over 2.5 million safety hours reached.
