Completely mental technocrane setup du jour

Absolutely mental though. Has anyone worked on a set where something of this scale was performed? How long does something like this take to set up, and how does a risk assessment read for 'putting a supertechnocrane on a swinging gantry from another crane'?

I seriously hope that gantry platform is bolted to the building wall with the base crane just taking the weight, otherwise they're in for an ugly surprise the moment the Techno starts to move. I sure wouldn't want to be that grip down below--directly underneath that platform.
Yeah, it's hard to see where the back of the platform is - possibly it's resting on the top of the building below, and the crane is just supporting the bit that's sticking out over the edge. Still, I think I'd rather be over with the onlookers on the completely opposite side of the street
