Selection of tower cranes location

Where to fix the tower cranes?

If you are involved in logistics of a high rise / tower, then the first thing to start with is your tower cranes which considered to be the heart of the project. If you fail in setting their proper location, you gonna suffer during the execution of every part of the project.

Avoid tie-in to the slabs from outside if you have a core and building vertical, because your core is supposed to be 3 floors ahead of the last floor slab. The distance will not be sufficient sometimes and you will be forced to go for temporary ties!

Avoid using two different types of tower cranes; hummer and luffing types at the same time if the distance between the centers is critical.
