I was wondering why they're using the double floor height forms for the super-columns when they're only pouring single floors at a time. Then figured that it might be for the mechanical sections that have heights of 5 metres or 4 metres, compared to 3 metres per floor for the regular residential floors.

This is not a mechanical level based on the photos. I believe they have another 7-8 floors to go before they start that.

True true, I meant they are using taller forms for the super columns on all the levels even though the actual floor height is only 3 metres. The reason, I'm guessing, is when they get to the mechanical levels, then they can use the same forms for the taller heights of 5 metres and 4 metres.

Or the cost of fabrication and development of those specific column forms vs the more traditional wall forms.

…so yes, what happens is that with the taller forms, they can use them on shorter or taller floors, they simply only pour in the concrete as high as they need on that particular floor, instead of going all the way to the top on every floor!

OT - Fermat's Last Theorem had already been proven - by Andrew Wiles (UK) in the early 90s.

Outside of sites devoted to the intricacies of number theory there can't be very many places in the net where more than one poster is happy to chime in knowledgeably on Fermat's Last Theorum.
