They have to get the work platforms up before they go higher.

PS: the blue netting on the work platforms is like gauze, ya can see right through it. Look at the pic 3 posts up, you can see right through it, it's a safty net, not a security fence.

There will be a third crane. An external climber on the north side.

...the core is completely self-supporting, correct? Almost a building within a building.

The towers look so modern in that pic - like they are from another world.

I would say those yellow things are sheets with which they cover outer side of the floor so they can put fireproof layer on the steel...


Netting and platforms would be those brighter red things up close to the top...

The red steel on this tower reminds me of the golden gate bridge a little bit.

If you want all the specs, click here http://www.manitowoccranes.com/MCG_M...model18000.asp and open the Product Brochure.

BTW they didn't drop it, the video is pieced together from separate segments.
