Crane Base #1


Rod Busting






Found the one muddy spot on the whole site - and stood in it.


The white stuff is Geo-Cloth - clay embedded to stop leakage.


N cable runs - the final project will need N+1

Nice close ups, Cozy.

I have yet to understand the so called "crane jump" once construction moves up. How in the f ?

So are the heights of both these tower going up reflected on whats shown on the title of this page or have they been shortened?...I didnt think either one was gonna break 500ft?

Steely Dan Oct 11, 2019 1:49 PM

the building heights we have listed in the title of this thread are from this post below on aug. 14th made by a known insider who has obviously seen dimensioned bid/construction drawings.

There are a few different ways that different cranes do it.. basically a badass crazy powerful hydraulic system pushes the entire thing up

Thanks pilsenarch. That's bad-ass. The level of comfort these guys have at those heights is quite admirable. At one point two guys were out there on the "cat walk" just yucking it up like they were at standing room only at the UC

Are all heights measured this way? From the lowest basement to the top? I had always thought they were from some sort of street level.
