Sky City; the super tall building project in China, is experiencing delays from building regulators in Beijing according to The New York Times.
The planned 838 metre skyscraper was scheduled to be fully constructed in Changsha by April 2014, however it is now expected to be pushed back to July 2014 at the latest. Which will be a year since the digging of the foundations were carried out.
Due to take away the title of world’s tallest building from the Burj Kahlifa in Dubai, Sky City should be built in months.
Tall building interaction with aviation
Although there has been no report of aviation issues that will arise from the Sky City development, a tall building can interfere with flight paths and the safeguarding of airports in the nearby vicinity.
With regard to safeguarding, it is better to check for a potential breach of the imaginary surfaces – used to preserve safe flight operations – which surround an airport. We offer an online report for this called the Obstruction Assessment which is ideal for use as an initial check. Result are emailed to you within 3 working days as standard, and can be used to better plan for how to keep the project moving forward.
