In August supposedly.

Just got a glimpse of the crane. That big boy is definitely for steel erection.
Looks like they are putting together another of those big cranes today.

They look like this when they're lifting

Just looking at it makes me think how does it get leverage ?


Kinda cheesy, but a good look at how they're put together and how they work. They get leverage with massive counter weight and pulleys.

Agree very interesting. Can't wait too see them work.
It looks like they're going to start putting up steel today! If not today soon. They're staging the steel and you can see guys prepping the anchor bolts. I'll bet they have some sort of ceremony for the first column to go up. The first piece and the last piece are a big deal for jobs of this size.

I'm betting that that first piece is going up in the lower right in front of the camera.
Any idea what that yellow material is for and are those electrical areas? Thanks in advance.

It looks like a vapor barrier. Over that they'll place gravel, then reinforcing steel, then eventually pour a concrete slab.
