But, at least a hundred workers are being used at 1WTC construction site? Are you absolutely sure about that or just exaggerating to bash The Pinnacle?

I am pretty sure that when the construction of the pinnacle is in full swing there will be at least one hundred workers too.

Actually there are over a thousand workers building 1WTC.

That's for the whole site.

But yes, I'd imagine a lot more than 100 people would be working on 1WTC itself.

Gosh that's a mass amount of people and why do they need that much when most parts of the tower are being built by using cranes, crane drivers and other machines, no? What are the jobs and responsibilities for those 1100 workers and are those over a thousands workers being used at the same time? Sounds a bit odd to me.

No it isn't. The quote clearly says for 1WTC.

The entire site has thousands of workers. At one time, there were 450 workers just deconstructing the Deutsche Bank Building.

Steel erectors, concrete workers, carpenters, electricians, plumbers, foremen, inspectors, crane operators, glass installers... and on and on. A lot of work is internal. There not just doing one floor at a time. Dozens of workers on working on multiple floors at once.

Sorry to disappoint you SO143, but it's been widely reported in the industry press that the Shard also has/had 1,100 workers on site at its peak. And, that's with a significant amount of off-site fabrication. People often under estimate the work that is required to create any building, never mind a skyscraper.

It won't be long before The Pinnacle has hundreds of workers on site.

London is still growing at a large rate to it's 15million or so now with another 3 million or so immediately around this metro area and more will be required to feed it. So quit with the immigration talk!

The Pinnacle will be a welcome addition to the skyline. Only future problem is we'll never be allowed to get anything taller than 1,000ft AOD without moving Heathrow and City :S
