1987 or 1897? I’m pretty sure ive seen Abe Lincoln in a better quality photo.
I guess there is a benefit to that Russian pre-fab concrete slab design after all.
All the former Eastern Bloc countries are littered with these.
this is the coolest pic on this sub, by far
Don’t buildings need piles to set the foundation? How do they reestablish the foundation once they move to the new location? Or does this type of building have a different sort of foundation works?
Imagine showing up to the wrong address with that kind of delivery
I have sooo many questions… but highest is sewage, how are they handling sewage connections?
In Romania You don’t move into apartment the apartment moves into
This is amazing that its more efficient to do this than build a new building.
IIRC there is a rather large building in Indianapolis, IN that was relocated too.
And[yep I was right.](https://www.indystar.com/story/news/history/retroindy/2014/01/07/indiana-bell/4354705/)
Why don’t we just take this building and push it somewhere else
“The solution? They split it in two and moved one of the halves to the other side of the road. They dug under the building, put railways and wheels and moved it 55 meters away (180 ft). The whole operation took 5 hours and 40 minutes and the (now) 2 separate buildings were moved apart on a 33 degree inclined angle. All this was done with the residents still inside the building. A woman decided to place a glass of water on the edge of her balcony and it didn’t spill a drop.”
My in-laws used to buy up old Victorian buildings in downtown Sacramento that were going to get demolished and then had them moved around on GIANT TANK-LIKE CARRIERS to different lots. I didn’t believe it until my wife showed me a picture of her as a child riding on, what was at the time our home, as it was rolled down 16th street for nearly two dozen blocks. Cops had to shut the street down, move stop-lights, the whole nine. Crazy shit, I can’t imagine doing it BY HAND though… holy shit.
Are we there yet?
Wow. I hope they told the residents first.
Question. How do they connect water lines, exhausts, sewage pipes, etc.?
How do that lift up the entire building at once to get it on the cars on each track?
We should take Bikini Bottom and push it somewhere else!
