Cool, very "retro-futuristic" as in, how they would conceive something futuristic in the 50's.

I wish they would put it up for auction. Would be worth something for me.

Thats pile loading test.

Basically after completing a pile (drilling the hole, puting the metal bars pile inside and pouring the concrete to reinforce it) they test it if it will support the weight of the building. They have calculated how much weight will be transfered to that specific pile by the building above (when build) so they build a platform above it and put all concrete block till it reaches the calculated weight (in thousands of tons) and they monitor the pile with sophisticated measurement equipments, if it moves or bend or if the structure developes stress somewhere, higher then the allowed parameters.

I don't think they test each and every one of the piles, maybe some 10% of them or even less.
