safe troyboy.

I just thought this tower construction doesn't use as much rebars compared to other skyscrapers, is that because of it has already superstrength concrete?

Other constructions usually have swamp of rebars laid on the floor but this one isn't as much. Also the steel-concrete combined columns on the perimeter of the site has only few rebars put inside the concrete.

For example in the photo below shows only few rebars surrounding the freedom white steel girder. When I saw SWFC documentary its columns had jungle of rebars around the girder.

With SWFC, only the 4 mega-collumns got the rebar+concrete treatment. With FT, all the collumns are getting this treatment, so the extra reinforcement needed is reduced.
I also think that SWFC might have been using slightly lower grades of reinforcing steel, which could also exlain why more was required there.

Stop spamming with this BS all over the forum. No photographer is going to hand over images for your "book" so you can $ benefit $ from their hard work. Nothing short of a contract, release, and compensation would suffice, but I'm sure you're not interested in that.

Well, I just got back to Philly after a long weekend in Manhattan. Stayed with an uncle whose apartment is near City Hall and the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge - only about 5 or 6 blocks from the WTC construction site. We saw a concert at the Winter Garden and then had a late night snack in Battery Park City. Anyway we walked over to the construction site - it was after midnight and I had a nice chat with one of the construction workers. Construction work is going on around the clock, 24 hours a day.

When I told the construction worker that some people are disappointed about how slow the project is going his only reply was that it is indeed behind schedule, but the construction is progressing, and everyone should be a little more patient because they are trying to do a good job. That's was his opinion, anyway.

Me and publisher will pay for photos. But we need realy good photos and with 300 dpi. So I can`t use pictures from forum. I need original images with permission of photographer. Publisher will make a contact and pay for photos (around 100 $ / photo).

Ive never understood why there is a pile machine right next to the WFC, outside the rebuilt Winter Gardens and the glass part of the building.

Because the transit corridor ends right there and the escalators will come up where the pile is. I am sure the pile is forming a pile wall.
