This is a building revolution! Now nobody builds like that! Everyone builds buildings, lifting materials and structures to the floor under construction, ConstructionWithoutCrane - offers to build buildings (skyscrapers) by raising a building under construction, to build "on the ground" ... ConstructionWithoutCrane - always builds the "first" floor when building a building (skyscraper). Then, having a permanent construction site, we will robotize, we will automate the main construction work, we will build floor buildings like cars on an assembly line, twice or more faster (calculation on the website). I propose to master a new technology having mastered all the methods of lifting a building under construction! http://igidali.ru http://youtu.be/MfIez2SBr6c RF patent for invention No. 2716319 International patent application PCT No. RU2019000773 Igidali Ashurbegov Russia, Rostov-on-Don.

The country's wealth is global technologies! This is a building revolution! Colossal commercial project! ConstructionWithoutCrane is a new technology that builds buildings (skyscrapers) twice or more faster (calculation on the website). Then we will win all tenders for the construction of skyscrapers, more than 120 of them are built annually. The company's turnover, very soon, will amount to $ 120 bn, the turnover will increase by an order of magnitude, if we build housing using new technology all over the world I propose to master. http://igidali.ru http://youtu.be/MfIez2SBr6c RF patent for invention No. 2716319 International patent application PCT No. RU2019000773 Igidali Ashurbegov Russia, Rostov-on-Don.
The wealth of the country is world technologies! This is a building revolution! Construction without a crane - the construction of buildings (skyscrapers) without interruptions, without interruptions due to weather conditions, without technological or other interruptions .., construction of buildings two or more times faster (calculation on the website). Even fresh concrete poured into the structure does not interrupt the construction, since it is in special conditions. These conditions allow the concrete to acquire design characteristics, while allow construction work to continue. I propose to master. http://igidali.ru youtu.be/MfIez2SBr6c RF patent for invention No. 2716319. International patent application PCT No. RU2019000773 Igidali Ashurbegov Russia, Rostov-on-Don.
