The crane about to be assembled has a 600-ton capacity. It will be used to lift the roof trusses from the templates you see in the pictures. About half of the pieces to assemble the crane are now on site. The other half is arriving on Tuesday. Assembly should be complete by next weekend and we can expect the first roof trusses to be lifted by the weekend. Pictures on the progress will follow showing the truss being lifted and, finally, the truss in place.
