Hanging Steel

These buildings are complex.  They have a hybrid structure of reinforced concrete, steel beams and posts and wood framing.  The steel beams are incredibly heavy so Bramel had to bring in a crane.  They were placed on temporary wood cradles and Fluxworx welded them together.  The carpenters are looking forward to putting up permanent walls after all this temporary false work, forming and bracing.

I stood well back. I don't like being under heavy things swinging through the sky.
