First off thank you so much otie for putting my pics up

Now one quick question, does anybody know the types of pipes that are being installed for the plumbing and waste systems in Tower 1 WTC? Thank You.

Don't know that much about piping information, but from what I have:
The PA made a contract through Tishman with Fresh Meadow Mechanical Corporation, who is providing heating, structural, ventilation, building automated temperature control, electrical, plumbing and fire protection work, all of them associated with the construction of the steam utility service, this includes furnishing and installing risers, point-of-entry valve room, various piping, ductwork, electrical systems, structural supports and fire-stopping mechanisms.

There are also fire standpipes on every floor, located within the concrete floor, these will supply water to the sprinklers in case of a fire.

Main pipes will be located along with ducts and conduits inside the mechanical floors.

The 1 WTC already looks extremely massive from the ESB observatory.

Great shots!

Almost a month since we've seen new floors started... hopefully after New Years we'll see the next couple levels.

Im just wondering what would it look like if the new WTC 2 tower was a twin of the new WTC 1 tower..? Would it have the same impact on the skyline like the former twin?
