Zen, so where are those supercolumns you're referring to going to go in at? The central oculus area of the hub?

Also, do you have any idea what those three long steel beams (or column) is going to be used for that are located directly adjacent to the hole where that hub column just went into? They have been sitting on that temp platform for days.

...the unattached beam I referred to in my post a few days ago is plainly visible in this shot. Anyone know what is up with that...did it not fit properly (too short or long) and has to be replaced?

It was made too short or too long. It happened to a lot of those beams in the base. It'll be replaced by a correctly fitting one like the others were.

How long can they put off doing that though?

I'm guessing it's not critical as it's been like that for a few months.

Quality construction at its best! I cant believe they made beams incorrectly. With all the technology available and refinishing fit perfectly without needing rework.

Maybe you'd like to try assembling a several thousand ton 200 foot wide steel frame without having a single hole off by more than 1/8 of an inch. Fixing the occasional tiny misalignment a small task.
They're not building a watch.

if WTC 1 was scaled down to the size of a watch, a 1/4 inch tolerance would be equivalent to about 2.5 micrometres, which is pretty small (probably smaller than the tolerances for a watch).

is the gap in the new floors on the west side there for the red crawler crane, or is it just the last part they are filling in?

I'd assumed they were just giving the east side priority so the 16000 crane could get to the next job. If they put the west 23/24 corners up before they fill in the west 21/22 floors, I guess I was wrong.

Photo taken today by Sal Schiano over at WNY.

The 18000 has one lift left.

Nomadd22, they left out that section to clear the jib of the 18000.
