Surely they could have kepy using that crane for another few floors? with only 1 crane working we might see a slow down in progress, but the floors are getting smaller... hmm, meybe it'll cancel the effect of the missing crane? hopefully.


(p.s i've just bought a Panasonic DMC TZ5 camera ^_^ it's not a DSLR its just a super zoom compact, but its still pretty good. trying to work out how to use the macro properly is quite hard but i'll get there)

Crane Decommision

Looks like no more crane coming down this evening.

In the pic below, will we see the crane being dismantled today, placed on the stage marked with a yellow line within the next few days and after some maintenance to give the required additional height to complete the spire and pinnacle, also used to dismantle crane No.1 in future?

Cladding spreading around the steel floors, first piece of glass installed at isolated spot. Most looking forward to the cladding taking up the upperconcrete and steel floors.
