Can I get a lift?
As we made the final preparations for the features to be loaded into the shipping container tomorrow, one of the many things we needed to do was document how the monster pieces are to be unloaded, handled and then assembled when they get to Dubai. It's important and not a last minute thing for these hard points been engineered into the structures from the very start. Each piece has mounting points to keep the heavy pieces secure during the 11,500 kilometre journey. There are also lift points which will keep things balanced and safe during the tricky operation of locating the features. Finally the pieces need to be precisely reassembled onsite. The hardest part is that once assembled these mounting and lifting points need to blend into the feature and NOT be noticeable.
