#2133: Shelfbuilder

People often need tall buildings where cranes can be hard to find.

Today’s invention is a building which is built by its own lift.

The lift and structural steelwork would arrive in several containers.

Then the lift itself would be fitted with a powerful motor, so that it could raise balanced sections of framework. It would then secure these and be able to move out onto the cantilevered floors to winch up additional components.

The lift shaft would be extended upwards, so that more and more floors could be added.

Eventually the lift would remain, working within the finished building.
