This is by far the most interesting construction of a tower ever to have taken place imo.

Is it allowed to work under crane lifting weights in China? It's banned in Russia

Its not directly under the beam, but neverthless, during installation of any beam, you allways need workers support. How can you imagine they would install it with just use of crane?

Not allways... During Sarcofag construction at Chernobyl after nuclear explosion of reactor in 1986, they didn't use workers at installation area, because of radiation high level.



See more photos here: http://ist.my1.ru/forum/11-101-1

But Sarcofag has many holes, because there was no possibility to precise fit of construction elements. Therefore, the bigger object so-called ARCA is planned:

What an intense pouring activity ! It could easily host a m3/min-pouring record in the world. Nice shots !

Hmm, someone on liftok.com just said that those beams may weight even more than 150 tons (!!). That may be the case, becouse lr1300 crawlers capacity is 330 tons so it would easly holds beams that heavy. But it also suggest that for first beams they will use only crawlers, becouse favco 1280D max capacity is "only" 100 tons so it cant hold these.

btw, some says the tower crane is not a 1280D. I have no idea, but 1680D would be just as enough for 150 tons beams with its 200 tons capacity. Well it seems we have to wait to see whats what.

Can anyone update the status of the amazing tower in the Shanghai Shipyard (Phase 2) by Kohn Pederson & Fox (i.e., KPF) shown in the attached video and in the photo below?

That's a shame. It seems that everything proposed in Shanghai is built, so I hoped that construction would be underway.

I suppose, like at 1WTC, 150t beams should be only at basement of building. So, like at 1WTC these beams probably will be installed using crawler crane(s).

But maybe such heavy columns can be lifted using 1280D or 1680D cranes. Look at load charts below for 4falls configuration of these cranes.



So, both above cranes can work with load of 200 tonnes!

Anyone else get the impression that they're building in Shanghai like tomorrow will always be prosperous and rosy?

Exactly my point.
It looks as if they're building as if current and perceived future demand is going continue.

Every investment has a risk. Real estate in China (especially office space in Pudong) is one with relatively low risk.
