Hi all.

Hi Assemblage.

The Favco SDD 3/10 is taken down in an elevator after manual disassembly.

Hi christos.

The Favco 242R has been up on tier 16 for months now. Once the main crane (Favco M440D) self lowers to the bottom of its mast the smaller Favco will hold the pieces as they disassemble them and lower them to level 99.
I think this is what you mean - ?

What's happening to the lake? Is it turning green? Is it supposed to?
Also, are the fountains' structure supposed to be so visible from above, and why is the lake getting darker around it?

Sorry about so many techincal questions

That can't be rust. These materials are all stainless steel.

Those rails made by copper, do you know that? Copper after a period become darker

So the idea is... where the rails are, the BMU's come down at each section connected to the rails and do that whole section?

where there are holes at the moment (BMU ''resting point'' - when there not in use) - how will that open? - slide window or hatch or something ???

I never seen BD from angle which 234sale's first picture is taken from. The cladding makes it look much thicker now.

Slide hatch like in all other skyscrapers. The BMU's can already be seen on the pictures.
