An overview shot of the project. Notice that the Rainstore3 cells had been shipped four units high and reassembled into eight unit high cells on site. The paper separated the four unit high cells. When assembling cells, adequate care must be taken to ensure all 36 cylinders completely connect to the adjacent cell’s cylinders.
