‘Nail houses’ in China: Construction put to a halt https://www.thestructuralengineer.info/news-center/news/item/657-nail-houses-in-china-construction-put-to-a-halt https://www.thestructuralengineer.info/news-center/news/item/657-nail-houses-in-china-construction-put-to-a-halt ‘Nail houses’ in China: Construction put to a halt

Construction work in China is taking place at a frenzied pace the last few years, but since all that new infrastructure requires space, in many occasions buildings have to be torn down and residents to move in order to make room for new projects. There are however, dwellings that stand alone like a nail that refuses to be hammered down, the so-called ‘nail houses’, when owners resist dispossession of their land by developers or hold out for better compensations.

Construction crane collapses while building a bridge (video) https://www.thestructuralengineer.info/news-center/news/item/592-construction-crane-collapses-while-building-a-bridge-video https://www.thestructuralengineer.info/news-center/news/item/592-construction-crane-collapses-while-building-a-bridge-video Construction crane collapses while building a bridge (video)

In the evening of the 9th of May, a large crawler crane collapsed in Varese, Italy while lifting a large section of a new viaduct at the Arcisate Stabio railway yards. The piece of concrete bridge was never put into place, as the Vernazza-owned crane lost its stability and overturned, dumping its load on the ground. Although several people were on site watching the operation, luckily no one was injured. The crane’s operator is also safe, as he managed to get out of the cabin in time, jumping from a height of nearly three meters.
