ah fantastic news.

Also, out of interest, what sort of time of the year does the weather normally get milder (when does the snow stop)?

Plus they can put addmixtures into the concrete to cure with high heat and extra air entrainment so that it won't freeze, or if it does some it won't adversely affect the mix. Pretty amazing how they can do these pours in these temperatures. Would be really interesting to find out what kind of process they used to keep it from freezing on this project. Very cool.

still it's really hard to say, what are the final figures.

Light of “Federation”
http://www.miraxcity.com/?path=news_...&id=497&page=1

This week the Management of ZAO “Mirax-City” is planning to meet with the representatives of LDA company, Austria. The aim of the meeting is signing of a contract for design of facade illumination of the “Federation” business complex.

A concept and a set of drawings of external and internal façade illumination and internal lighting of the “Federation” has been already developed based on architectural and building drawings. There are two types of illumination in the design – everyday and festive. The main concept comprises several stages of development: in stylobate zone, crossing bridges, mast, spire.

The common external illumination will be realized by means of projectors. Their light will be directed in such a way that the outline of towers and internal structures will be seen from the earth. Illumination will be of the whitest shade. Crossing bridges at the 33, 47, 61, 76 and 89 floors, the mast and internal facades of stylobate zone from a 5 m level to a 34 m mark will be illuminated with projectors. Their light will clearly outline the facade elements and internal structures.

The mast illumination intensity will be increasing from a 33 m mark to a 367,2 m level. External facades of the stylobate zone starting from zero level and up to a 22 m mark, the spire starting from a 367,2 m mark and up to a 448,2 m mark are illuminated by means of the lights located behind the glass panels in the “blind” facade zones. The façade surface is evenly illuminated by a white color shade light. Facades of towers «А» and «B» will be illuminated with projectors placed on the stylobate roof and lawns of the complex.

Daylight illumination of the internal atrium space will be realized with the help of mirrors. Three options of conceptual design of external and internal lighting will be considered during the final approval. In the course of approval one option from the suggested ones will be chosen or a new one will be compiled.
