A cool 1,300 psf to listen to those turbines until they're finally condemned.

MAPMAKER!! Glad you're still alive. What does psf mean?

per square foot, I presume.

Turbines have been running this week and as before sound like a bunch of demented frogs to anyone behind the building.

Zappomatic, where are you standing when you say you're behind te building? Do you mean south of the building, on the ground? Because I've been beside and behind the building while the turbines and not heard a thing. Or maybe you're in the apartment underneath the turbines, having paid for your apartment?

Or perhaps you do actually have a box of demented frogs about your person? :)

You can hear the turbines when walking along Hampton Street, which is behind Strata.

I've heard them in Hampton Street and Crampton Street, and also between O Central and the railway line.

I don't think you're supposed to be able to here them whilst near or in the building. Most of the noise is heard at a radius of around 1 mile around the building.

The bearings will become noisy. As I've posted previously the engineers who put them in reputedly give them a life measured in months not years before the bearing noise is unbearable in the building. Presumably explains why they're running only one turbine at once, only occasionally. Should last for years that way!

Haven't seen one running for several days now.

We get a good view of the turbines from our place. Hardly ever see them turning, and generally only ever see one turning at once. Saw all three going at once a week or two back, which was quite remarkable.

...if you press it, they will come.
