It looks good but the true 432 Park looks far better

Full crew on site working this Saturday morning!!!!! They seem to be working six days a week with regularity.

If a crane was going up on the 57th street side today would be the day to do it but wouldn't you know the 57th Street cam has been moved :-(

Look how far they are already. You can't see any sky.

I hope too that they turn it back coz we can't see the crane progress now.
Btw there are also more columns ready to be placed.

They want to get an edge on 225 W 57th, which will be a better building than this.

I wonder if the company assembling the crane insist that it not be shown on a cam. I think that could be the reason.

Today, Saturday, the north section of the slab is being poured. Two 3 yard concrete lay-down buckets are waiting on the street awaiting mixers, while up on the deck, about a third has been poured. Yesterday, the protective plastic sheeting for warmth retention beneath the new section to be poured today was installed.

Why are they using buckets today rather than the pump like they have in the past?

Isn't the pump faster? And doesn't it free up the crane to do other things?

They always used the kibbles for the northern most -57th st section of the slab. You can tell because they formed up only the north section of the slab and will use the pump for the remaining section which the pump can reach to. They are pouring the northern most section first as it is the furthest away and will not have access to it if they pour the closer sections towards 56th first. Just a little bit of forward thinking so that they won't waste any time watching concrete dry

Also I would have shifted the crane slightly towards the east, inline with the eastern boundary of the main building as the crane is bloody in the way most of time when using the pump. But I reckon whoever is building is using a crane with less capacity to save cost rather to save time pumping concrete

Placing concrete behind the crane would be most awkward.....but once reaching levels above ground this would not matter if using internal pumps...

Today, Saturday, was as busy a workday at 432 Park Avenue as any day during the week. A full worker crew was present for today's activities.

Concrete was poured on the north (57St) portion of the street level slab. Yesterday, the protective envelope was placed for warmth retention under this portion of slab in anticipation of today's pour. In addition, the the jog to the east was also poured as well. Column rebar was also placed. A large gang form was assembled on the west open space area of the slab recently poured, and partially erected on the north side for the core wall. With the large working area now provided by the newly created open space on the new slab, greater efficiency is realized in assembling large gang forms, and placing them by crane.

The two depressed areas on the east part of the recently poured plaza slab was previously covered for safety for the workmen, but since the slab has cured enough to bear construction loads, and workmen can freely traverse the slab, a barricade has been placed beside the now uncovered depressions for worker safety.

Doesn't this location on Park make up for that?

Question: why aren't they implementing any type of core jump form system? Is this usual in new york construction?

Not in a residential building designed like this.
