good stuff don,dupont seems to be moving long quickly and it seems like the 1st phase is now the 600ft tower,and i like how the wind studies added met2 but any reasonwhy the used the 750ft version of met3?

and if you notice the 1st pictures features what i believe would be 500brickell station,or 500brickell 3

Well, I guess you can't blame them for using the original version of Met 3. I mean, it's like MDM has ADD with all the permutations it's been through.

These tests are the starting point of a building. They give the design wind pressures, positives and negatives at every particular location of the building.

Each reading is in PSF pounds per square inch, an example, 95 PSF. A component of a building, lets say a window, must be capable of widstanding the wind loads of a minimum of 95 PSF. A Door manufacturer must have a Dade County approved product capable of holding the winds to these pressures otherwise you won't get a permit and you won't be able to install it.
