A little cold wont slow them down! A snow storm here and there might get in the way though.

What effect do the high winds have? I'd imagine there'd be restrictions on using the cranes in high winds, which would slow down construction.

sure, but I dont think high winds occur more so in winter, not sure though. But on really cold days the wind chill up there has got to be brutal.

" Patience, Everyone! " Projects, especially, of This magnitude can't be rushed to completion for many reasons. Do You want (Trump Tower Chicago) It to collapse before It's even completed? There are, hidden, structural issues that must be addressed before (rising) moving forward. All This hurrying could doom It.... even with Today's engineering! " Rush jobs " precede disasters!

i think floors are 3.1m each (floor to floor), so floor to ceiling would be approx 2.9m? or 9 1/2feet?
