The nuclear power plant(NPP) construction is a mammoth project, which requires a huge construction budget and the long construction duration of about 7 years. Recently there is a trend to shorten the construction period, to save the construction cost and to ensure the competitiveness through adopting the open top construction method. In this method, the major equipment are moved into the building through its top, and the internal works of the reactor building are being in process without installation of a dome roof.
