The basement excavation is complete and the crane base has been concreted in, so crane should go up in next week (or 2). Picture 15/9/2018. The bent rods sticking up out of the ground are the tops of the piles and these get incorporated into the basement footing reinforcement .

Crane is fully up now - it's big, the boom goes over the powerlines a little bit above the houses across the road. It looks it's about half the height the building will be, this building will be the same(ish) height as the Stamford a few doors down.

Workers on site from the riggers/scaffolders to even the crane operator are more interested in playing on snapchat and other social media during the work day.
Quite often on the snapchat map you'll see them messing around, yes, even the crane operator.
