They really put everything upside down!
The Memorial Plaza will be finished first and then the museum and the path mezzanine.
So when the plaza is finished the webcams are useless if you want a view under ground level.

Correct and thus they won't be able to see what's happening underground once the plaza decking is in place!

And once the decking in place that means there is nothing to see underground...

Of the Memorial that is, just like we cant see what they are doing under the current floor of WTC 1

yeah i agree, thats the bad thing. As long as our dollar goes down, costs are going to soar. Also, demand from foreign countries will have to slow too. I think China and India have driven the price of concrete, copper, and basically every building material out of this world.

Dollar is rising actually - modestly, but going up.

I like this quote, though I don't remember who it's from...
"It is nowhere written that the American Empire goes on forever."

Back on the tower topic...
I'll be glad once we see some floors rising...

They're trying to blame our money problems on the housing market. But I like to think other wise. Look at the price of gas. Must americans are working to put gas in the tank, so they can get to work. Gas has driving up the price of everything. And if you look gas has jump more since Bush has been president. And he hasn't done anything to stop it. But money isn't the reason why this building is going slow. To be the safes building in the world it going to take time. And theres the things going on in the background behind close doors.

please stop wasting server space with retarded comments, thank you and back to the topic



US firm increases Ground Zero work time to reduce delays

US contractors plan to increase working time on the Ground Zero project by one quarter to reduce the late running scheme.

Senior vice president of main contractor Tishman Construction, James Durkin, told Construction News the company will raise the working hours onsite as the scheme came under heavy criticism for being behind schedule.

He said the company plans to lengthen the existing 7am till 3pm day to 12-hours to reduce the impact of delays to the scheme to rebuild the site left by the collapse of the World Trade Centre in 2001.

There are currently 1,000 contractors on the site, which will include four office towers and an arts centre and this will rise to approximately 9,000 at the height of the project.

He blamed the late running on the complexity of the work and that "the scheme has multiple architects". Contractors have also encountered an unexpected layer of glacial clay, which forced them to excavate to an additional level of approximately 10m.

In June, Govenor David Paterson a 70-page report, published on Thursday, after skeptics claimed the project was mired in confusion and needed reevaluation.

Contractors are currently racing to complete a memorial to those who died at the World Trade Centre disaster by its tenth anniversary in 2011.

When questioned, Mr Durkin agreed that this could be at the expense of other elements of the project.

He said: "Getting priorities right is always something that can be difficult on a job but it's got to be finished on time."

Contractors are also working on a $3.2bn transit hub to replace the Metro centre destroyed in the disaster and the $3.1bn Freedom Tower.
