The comprehensive building has unique structure and shape design, so it need overcome many difficulties. During the steel construction, some trusses and main beam are about 15 ton, which need two tower cranes to hoist and install and also need higher technical quality and safety standards. Otherwise, make the profiling steel sheet as permanent formwork to reinforce on the steel structure, which is a new process and technique and also bring great challenge when applied.
