How to Replace a Window in a Skyscraper

Today we were treated to a free demonstration of how to replace a broken window in a skyscraper. It takes less than 30 minutes to pop out a broken window and replace it with a new one, and there is surprisingly little disruption to on-going operations.

No detailed explanation, but a rather robust photo documentation is provided here.

  1. Well that answers one of my age-old questions. That's one heck of a job, very dangerous yet very exciting. I wonder how they would change the windows on Burj Khalifa at 160 stories up. That would be interesting.
