Prepared well, executed flawless

Since the entire area is under development, all the moving space and logistics have to be strictly aligned. For example, the available space will only allow for one crane. We use this crane exclusively for the structural work and the façade. Any other supplies will be transported with the person- and equipment-elevator. We are already strictly planning the availability of the crane, elevator and loading zone. This allows us to work efficiently as expectations are solid.
