..."The 20-story base of the tower is wrapped and perforated, and has LED lighting," he explained in outlining how and where QPI's work will be used on the project, "but it also serves a functional purpose in that it provides cooling for the mechanical systems and equipment."
He noted that QPI had already worked on different ancillary aspects related to the project, like ceilings, walls and elevator cab work, prior to being awarded this particular contract.
"There are a number of different areas where we have been supplying to the project, but this is certainly the most prestigious," he offered.
Gilboy said QPI's involvement with the tower began last year.
"We started working with a design consultant in 2011, making some samples for the project when it was in the early stages," he recounted. "Through that, we were able to get to bid on the project in late 2011, and we were awarded the contract in January [of this year]."
Since then, he noted that QPI has been working on producing and delivering the materials — which he said will be installed during the first half of 2013. The tower is scheduled to open in 2014.
"We should have all of our work completed by the end of this year," Gilboy estimated.
"We're very excited to have our footprint on one of the most prestigious portions of the overall World Trade Center project," he related. "It's a tremendous opportunity for us."

^Some low-rise elevator cabs are already delivered and in place, banks communicating the ground lobby with the Observation lobby are being tested, bathroom fitout is progressing above floor 60 and Direct Expansion units are being installed above floor 90.

Yes, the building is now topped out. It is as tall as the original North Tower, and soon the spire (antenna) will be erected.

At times they do.They were about to take the crane down today but the weather halted such action,and now it should be until Monday when we see the crane being dismantled.

I did see work going on two Saturdays ago, when I was there, but not at the pace you would see during the week. There seemed to be more going on at Tower 4 than at Tower 1.

No, not taller than 1WTC. In fact, if you look at it from certain angles....

Amazing but unfortunately it's not going to look like that anymore,since you can see the photo was taken when floor 104 and the parapet were missing.

Edit:Nevermind,I remember one of the twins looking taller from Brooklyn.Do you believe this was intentional?Once the antenna goes up,it's going to look even more amazing.
