On paper, these B-CORE slabs have a lot speaking for them, but trying to find out what the user experiences are, and who applied them, and where they are used, I found it very hard to obtain any information. There seems to be pretty little informtation on them anywhere, apart from the marketing statements and their repetition in different internet media.
Disturbingly, J57 Mini Sky City, the tallest building erected with B-Core Slabs is listed as ''Abandoned'' here: https://www.skyscrapercenter.com/building/j57-mini-sky-city/19743
