  • It would be nice if they could have it closed in before the thirty below stuff arrives.

    • With this being an El Nino year, thirty below may not be an issue next winter

          What does -30 have to do with window installation?

                That the trades working on the tower would be able to work more quickly and efficiently when the tower is closed in by glazing?

                Unfortunately that's not realistic given where the project is at now. At least not for the whole building. But as Ian said, the lower floors will be closed in and have trades working in them while the upper floors are being erected and closed in. The timelines for this project are extremely tight, supposedly the floors have to be ready for interior improvements by next spring/summer.

                • Steel structure has expanded more towards the NW corner now.

                    Sind like there is a penalty clause between the COE and Katz group of this comes in late.

                      We also have tarps to hoard openings. Even with glazing, it would still be frigid cold without heat supplied. Granted with glass, it will block a windy day.

                        They'll have temporary heating. I would imagine most or all of the building's powerplant will be on top (there might be a boiler system lower down, for all I know), so it wouldn't be operational until long after the lower floors need to be roughed-in.

                        • Another big concrete pour this morning, north of the elevator shaft and presumably NE

                          • Yes, the pour was the NE corner. Just the SE corner to go and the grade floor will be done.
