Everything is possible ...

But, we are the winners of this competition at the end, especially when we are 100% sure that they will both be higher than 1100 meters high

Such a great time ahead

Wouldn’t the cranes be jumping or climbing cranes? Climb up the shaft as it rises?

Maybe just if they can start on a second series of glass higher up, an still can connect nicely with the class from below.


It's all tolerances adding up to each other.
That, combines with the curving that changes at some levels, makes it quite complicated, I think.

Sometimes they have the crane hold a tower section as they climb it, for balance.

Here's a nice video showing the process of removing a tower section from an external climbing crane. You can see that the crane holds a weight during the process for balance.
