Indeed, what would they have to steal anyway? A shovel and a bucket ?

Their only pleasure is to climb high places, they climbed the Pyramids too and other famous buildings.
I don't think they'd have pleasure to steal anything, lol

In wonder what will happen to the site security guards? Would they get sacked? Or maybe the security company changed altogether? That video should have a positive impact to the project as a whole (a lot of people will know about it who didn't care about skyscrapers) but it was certainly not a good thing for the security company which was guarding the construction site.

No matter how fun and cool this video is it also exposed the fact that site security was pretty much useless. What if some terrorists would have done the same and instead of taking pictures for fun would have planted some explosives? Security would have not even noticed them.

I remember I climbed the yellow pipes at the back of my grocery store to the roof and thought I was cool

Great video guys, really inspiring!

That's not the point. The site was compromised and we don't know anything other than that. So a walkthrough will be done. This isn't a 5 floor apt building.

Were they harmless? Probably. Could they have messed something up by accident? Yep.

Thus a walkthrough.

If I were on the project, I would have everyone do a site check when we returned.

Just to be safe.
