Stuck In Building (S495b)

However, the building firm is proud of the results of its work. They say that no-one has ever done such a thing in the Ukraine, as the multi-storey was built using modern Austrian technology and they hope to receive a state architecture award for it. In order to disassemble the crane, they will use either a helicopter or another tower crane.
"Air transport is the best thing that civilization has invented. There is another method. It is an analogous crane. It is built alongside and looks like a crane located in an enclosed space," commented Miroslav Boiko, the director of the building firm.
The builders promise to disassemble their creation during the day, before the eyes of hundreds of spectators. However, it is unclear when this will take place, since they cannot find a partner crane. In addition, the building firm needs to acquire the signatures of the corresponding city services regarding the safety of such work.
The director of the building firm Miroslav Boiko believes that the house with a crane may become a significant city site. "It's a breakthrough in architectural fashion in the Ukraine ," he says. "No-one has conducted such construction before. It's essentially know-how."
Local inhabitants are not so optimistic. They fear that the ancient Ratusha, an architectural historic pride of the city located 200 meters away, may be damaged as a result of the work carried out to extract the crane.
