when you do a critical pick (using over 90% of a cranes chart, or tandem picks), you are supposed to have a pre lift meeting with all those involved to review the procedures.
Thanks for the info

Ahhh this is so exciting! I wonder if they'll install a piece this week!

EDIT: Yes one of the pieces weighs 67 tons, and also it's only gonna take three months to install instead of the original 6! So I guess the radome shortened the time frame

I see how they squared off the base above the lobby. They just extended the rectangular [8x12 inch if I remember right] pieces of metal from the large sides until they meet each other at 90 degrees. I don't know how they will square off the lower portion of the base.

Going to Battery Park to try to get some pics..

Diagram shows a Link-Belt, so maybe there is a 760 there now to tandem pick the pieces on the barge, then once the big stuff is set they will remove it and put the Link-Belt there. We already seen the 760 there now unload the sections that sit on the north side of the tower which means those are in capacity

no, there is no unique design for the comms ring. It's a ring around the spire. With communications equipment.

yes, and to think it looked to be one of the tallest down there after 9/11 now it's almost an after thought

hi, I'm new here but I have been keeping an eye on the progress of 1WTC for a while and it has been great. The shape of the building, the shimmering glass all make this stand out and this during construction and I can't wait till it's done.
