Almost all projects are compleated ontime, you only hear about the ones that make the news when they are late.

Mockup for the climbing tower crane framing.

Crane decks in the stored position. When they need to put something heavy on a particular floor they drop the crane deck down and place the load on it, then wheel it inside to where it needs to go. The ones with EDC on them are the retractable kind.

With the economy the way it is, no need to rush the building to completion. Better to take time and build it well.

It's moving up at about a floor a week. That's a pretty darn good speed for any project, and if you take into consideration the fact that it's happening on 1WTC, it's downright blistering!

Just for curiosity, does anyone remember what was the Empire State Building rate of construction? I mean floors/week.

This is gonna take faster than the construcion of the Empire State Building because remember that that was in the 1930s and they didn't have the machines that we have now so my guess is that the floors per week are faster than the Empire State.

Really? Because the Empire State Building was adding 4.5 floors a week at the height of construction, and that was with rivets.

Compare that rate to the rate we've seen here so far, and get back to me on that.

I don't mean this as a negative comment against construction workers but 2010 is not 1930's......back when the ESB went up was in the great depression and guys in work did longer and harder hours......Work safety rules were different as was equipment and construction methods.

I can't say I am a pro on this but, a floor per week is quite slow. In Dubai and China the buildings rise way faster. In Dubai they got people working 24/7. I went there for a weeks vacation and there was a building site next to our hotel. I've never seen so many workers on one building. ....and I've once heard that in Dubai they build a floor per day, but that's just a rumour

I guess the NYC guys are paid an hourly wage so why hurry?
