Actually, it's not a wash.

They do have to hoist the steel ever higher but, the steel (mostly the columns) gets lighter so they can hoist more pieces at a time.

In case anyone is wondering. They hoist bundles of beams and columns up to the nearest decked floor. Then once they get it all up there they place individual pieces.

Many years ago the Foreman of the shop I worked in worked for the company that put the antenna on the North Tower.

He told me they had a 40 foot box trailer with the roof cut off and the doors welded shut. They would fill it up with all the stuff that needed to go to the roof. What ever the crane could handle. Then as the crane lifted it to the roof they took the elevator up. They could then spend a few minutes having a smoke and finishing there coffee before the trailer arrived and they could unload it. The Favco cranes on Tower One are much faster.

After a fast start the glass curtain wall seems to have slowed down - does anyone know when they will start adding it to more floors?

I'm sure you wake up every day and hope that these horrible buildings in the right will just magically disappear.
