The towers are just 12,000m2, so it`s more than 1,000 euros for m2, thats realy enough in Klaipeda
Between, they started to build a big crane, because the old one is already too short.

So now we have a rendering of the D tower.
Looks like they will make a big impact on the city scene.

@Nightsky
Not when other highrises will be finished

Between in the photos that John took three days ago from those above, the K tower was 1fl. lower, so they added a floor in three days, i hope that this tower wont collapse

Where do they hurry??? Don't know much about construction technologies to judge about the quality of such fast works, may be it's nothing special.
Just noticed that in Panorama Plaza they make concrete works for one floor step by step and wait several days, doing other things.
(you may look this here: http://www.panoramaplaza.lv/webcam.htm )
These towers in Klaipeda should be using some another technology.

Thing is we are short on construction workers here, so they just try to do everything as quickly as possible I don't know is it true, but friend of mine (he works for construction company) told me so.

They are using some sort of special material (i don't know what ), so they can build very quickly, and this material can be used only if temperature is > +7, so they just try to finish main works until deep autumn.

It`s concrete mixed with glue
All the construction company`s are short of workers, so maybe its the only solution, because other works are waiting too

When concrete is being made there are some "ingredients" mixed in. With the help of it concrete hardens faster than usual. Anyway, floors can be built faster but supports which hold floors untill they hardens should still stay - as we see in photos, those supports stand not only at the last floor.

If you knew Lithuanian you could learn something in our Lithuanian forum since we have (had?) some proffesionals there.

As far as I remember usually/normally one floor is fully being built during two weeks. "Fully" - I mean that it will not need any supports.

That's all I can tell from what I learned in Lithuanian forum.

Btw, as long as that top floor is being supported, you can't really say it's already built.

It's wonderful that this project is developing so fast without any bureaucratic and technical interruptions.

How is it possible to start the constructions without a permit?
