To be able to lift cranes, floors around main core must be more or less 3 levels under the jumpform (in order to instal the steal strucutre supporting the crane)

floors are late => cranes are late => jumpform can't rise

- it also replaced one which was taken down in early-April, which was then replaced by a jumping crane in late-April (which never jumped) and was subsequently taken down in early-May and then replaced (by the one that you have reffered to) in late-June (and this also never jumped)!

Hi all.

I find the various level naming schemes used on projects around the world to be very interesting.

The signage they have added to the structure is the only way we are able to learn the level naming scheme since we have no section drawing showing all the level names.

The section we do have does show (by counting the levels between the labeled ones) that if they name any more mezzanine levels they will then skip the next level number. Level 16 looks like it may be a mezzanine - so no 16, instead 15M - we shall see.

So the names we know so far are:
4
2M
2
1
B1M
B1
B2


Ray.
