The mobile is a Liebherr LTM 1500, once it takes those pieces of the tower apart they will go across site, its hard to say if the Favco already in the hub will assemble it or the 18000, I would say the 18000 since its already still raised. If you look also there is a Terex AC500 on site to take out the 18000

Anyone have any intel regarding when the temporary supports for the No.1 Subway Box will be removed? Can't see why they will be needed for much longer.

It's taking forever to get rid of the 18000. I know the rain, Labor Day holiday, and 10th anniversary probably slowed them down a good bit. But still...

Indeed. This morning I see the counterweights are gone and the KPI TV cam shows one of the crane pads has been turned into a ramp. (The view of the other must be hidden by 2WTC.) And they are wasting no time in laying rebar and pouring concrete on the 18000's old stomping ground.

As of this morning it's been crawled into the corner right under the AC500, I bet it will be gone by Monday.

BTW Cat328: I've noticed the IUOE logo on some machinery lately and I see you are using it as your avatar. Did the guy who designed it have something in mind when he made the needle point at 420?

Almost all gone, it looks like one track and the rotating bed, although it may be both tracks


I don't know about it at 420, but I do know its a steam pressure meter

Hi american memebers, I'm Spanish and a great admirer of Calatrava, however, in recent years, the architect has begun to lose creativity.

I fear that this building in New York ends up being a "work more" of Calatrava, which looks likely to end up making models of their own buildings, and do not be surprised if there are small "irregularities" in the subject of money works, Calatrava 2 has been accused in corruption scandal in Spain, in Valencia, as in a work that was never built, in Palma de Mallorca.

I admit I used the translator: $, sorry for my english ...

Yeah, Calatrava's hub looks pretty same-y. Thankfully I think it works well in this complex and adds some needed variety toward the ground.

No, no, no, Calatrava has discredited himself with his political friends who have been charged for corruption, Calatrava has done very good work, most of which I love. ok, let's focus on the work of NY.
