But seriously, I've been wondering exactly how they're going to position the cranes for the construction of the crown. It would seem that they can't stay where they are because they're in the way of the remaining floors above that last truss belt so I'm wondering if they're going to somehow secure one or two cranes to the very top of the core. It's going to be interesting to see how they position them in order to top this building out. Does anyone know? Thanks!
lol thats Boris Johnson - the Major of London. He is kind of a living legend. xD

My guess is that at least one crane will move to inside the core. In any case they must have figured out what to do.

London mayor Boris Johnson shows off his bike yesterday in Shanghai. The London mayor visited Shanghai to promote innovative businesses and to drum up more Chinese investment for Britain’s capital.

This thread is so busy with updates that I must have missed something. What new crane?

Read this and watch the video. Should explain all.

The screens are taken from this vid. Watch it from 4:42. The construction of the crown is shown with quite a detail. This sure will be very interesting process to follow. Quite a lot of different cranes will be used in the process.




Just to think those cranes they are bringing were hanging out there for over 3 years now

It amazes me this tower was considered "topped out" when there is so much more structure to build on top.
