Hi all.

I kinda expected to see the super columns rise with the core. I guess they will start on them and the radial trusses soon.

We can see they are working away at the ground level outside the original excavation. They have dug down to level B1 in much of the outer area. The 2 elevation drawings posted here show the parking levels down to B5 appear to be larger than the original excavation so they must be doing a top down method in the outer areas.

It is also possible they revised the plans of course ...


Ray.

Millions of tons?

LOL

I don't think there are a million tons of steel in downtown Baltimore.

The Burj Dubai I think used something like 40000

Hi SSC.

Not sure for this project but just as a comparison:
The original WTC twins had 200,000 tons of steel (both towers)
I just finished reading "Men of Steel" - a good read about the family that erected the steel in the twins.

The BK has 55,500 tons of rebar and 775,000 tons of concrete in the tower, base, and podiums. I have no figures for the steel, spire, and pinnacle tiers but I would guess 5,000 tons ?

thanks for replying ray.

do you mean 5000 tonnes for BK? that is very less IMO

and what do you think that ST will have more steel than BK?

Hi SSC.

The BK is a reinforced concrete structure up to tier 15 (595.7 m.). Above that it is a steel structure and that is what I guess at 5000 tons.

This project is a steel structure from bottom to top and will have far more steel tonnage than the BK.

I would hazard a guess at 125,000 tons of steel ?

Going faster??? It's already damn fast, compared to other projects of this size, at least the core! Or do you mean the whole floors? I think you have to wait for this until the area around the building is brought to street level.

no no no, you mis-understood me, i know the building is on track it just seems to be taking for ever for this thing to take off, i understand the pace has really picked up lately but it seems to be taking soo long.

thanx, i didn't realise it wasn't at ground level, i thought they had already built up the surrounding area, that would explain why it seems to be so slow. and yes i was referring to whole floors being built.
