According to the latest drone videos from the Tesla Gigafactory 4 (aka Giga Berlin) site in Grünheide near Berlin in Germany, construction work progresses quickly.

The first big tower crane emerged, accompanied by a smaller one (on June 11) and multiple crane vehicles.

As one would expect from German companies, everything is done step after step in an orderly manner. Within a week, we should see completed the first set of foundations, made from reinforced concrete rectangles.
