In Chicago there is no ordanance to cover this, people have been knocked out ( Mechandise Mart ) and killed ( Neiman Marcus ).

The problem isn't snow, or even the ice that coats the buildings ( it flutters down ), the danger comes from slush ( very wet snow ) that collects on ledges and the freezes, a 5th floor ledge is just about as bad as the 50th floor.

I wouldn`t be so sure about that. We have a skyscraper from the 70`s in Frankfurt who tend to create ice bombs in winter. The only thing they can do, is closing the surrounding area.

It's not 70's now. I don't know about FT exactly, but there are special technologies preventing icicle formation. But it's not easy to install this on an old building.

http://www.miraxcity.com/?path=news_...&id=498&page=4

On the night of February 25 the MIRAX GROUP Corporation finished the casting of foundation slab of tower «А» in the «Federation» business complex being constructed in the MIBC «Moscow-City».

The process of casting started on February 22 at 12:00 p.m. and was finished on February 26 at 01:00 a.m. Thus the procedure lasted continuously for 84 hours. Ultra-strong B-50 concrete was supplied by 5 concrete plants of Moscow. The average rate of concrete feed was 243 m3 per hour. In total it was cast 14 thousand cubic meters of concrete developed by the Moscow Reinforced concrete research institute together with Construction physics research institute by «Mirax-City» company’s request.

The unprecedented in the world casting procedure was registered by the Editor-in-Chief of Guinness Book of Records Craig Glendane, who presented a honorable diploma of a record-holder to Arthur Alexandrov, Construction manager of the «Federation» complex.












A lot of glass, but is wonderfull

Yeah. Happy new year. In Italy it's just past midday, but in Fiji, in 20 minutes' time they'll be celebrating. Wish I was in Moscow to see the fireworks show on the Federation Tower. Ok, maybe next year...
