It is not rare to see renovation or construction work carried out in upper floors while the ground floor is still being used for whatever activity. However, such situations are strictly regulated to insure maximum safety for the users of the building. In the case of Matrix Tower, you just need to look at the above pictures to realize that there is no safety measures (safety net, scaffolding, closed area) taken to prevent accidents from occurring.

From 34 to 13 floors! From illusion to reality, there's a chasm construction engineers under Kabila's rule cannot cross over. Hope that the building itself will stand the test of time including Kinshasa's legendary floods.
