Was it your dog that has lost his way and came to our site? Luckily his owners phone number was written on his strap, we called him, he came and took his dog...

Because of financial problems, our capacity was formed to cast 2000-2500 m3 of concrete per month. But now, our goal is 3500 m3 per month. We will see...

Thanks for the info anyway.
This towers looks different from most of IBC buildings, one of my favourite.
Upper floors are smaller, so even with such speed the building would top out in 3 years or less.

Glad to see that they're still working steady despite the freezing cold weather that is right now in Moscow.

Hard time indeed, anyway great job for the great building. I can hardly imagine construction works now, during the winter, we had -15 at night last week and that was already tough. This is no1 design in Moscow imho.

I can imagine, the temperatures are below normal for this time of the year, really cold. All I have to say, great progress so far, you're picking up some pace, but I guess it's because you guys are trying to stay warm!

Did they continue the work with such low temperatures? I guess the water for the concrete will have a 'problem'.
