The Integration Tower stacking started overnight. NasaSpaceflight has a Utube video up on its channel.
Prior to the stacking of segment #2, an elevator was lowered into centre of the tower base structure. It seems they are constructing an elevator like the one at the High Bay building, that will run up a track (This one on the inside of the Tower), to allow construction crew easy access. It's pretty clear that getting people up the Tower in a man lift crane was not going to work given the heights anticipated.
There are also internal stairs being constructed. I am not sure how the final interior structure will look or be equipped.
