Structural Moving is the basis of Urban Transformation.
Structural Moving is an established industry of highly skilled professions and has a long history of optimizing existing resources and minimizing waste by saving/reusing entire buildings.
In ‘Part 1′ of this Introduction, the examples of ancient history – Stonehenge; Herod’s Temple of Jerusalem – highlighted our ancestor’s accomplishments in lifting and moving huge, massive stone blocks and positioning them with great accuracy. The largest, a foundational block of the Temple Mount, was an astonishing 600 tons!! And, 2000 years ago! (4000 years ago for Stonehenge’s 20-50 tons stones, and no wheel for transport!). Sheesh.
This serves to establish our human technical capabilities.
With ‘Part 2′ of the Introduction, a few examples from recent history will highlight the specific technical capabilities of lifting and moving ‘buildings’ – spatial constructed assemblies, as opposed to solid rock.
We are capable of lifting/moving large buildings (houses). We’ve been doing so for a long time, and we now have decades of highly experienced knowledge/skill and various modern equipment/machinery to utilize.
