Does anyone know where the sheet piling will go? A slurry and secant walls surrounding the sight in the outer wall of the core complete so there's no obvious place where goes.

Does anyone know who the Carpenter contractor is going to be? I already called the Shelbourne Development and they were absolutely no help.

Why don't you call the Carpenter's Union. I'm sure your local hall can help you.

I think they still need to do the collums that hold up the garage, im guessing they will put the sheet piling around those collums just like they did for the 7 support collums for the building.

They won't help me either. There are to many carpenter laid off that they can't help us all. We are expected to do what we can to find the work. I have talked to a lot of people and have gone to a lot of job sites, but I just can't catch a break

I have been watching this thread for a while now, but have never needed to post a response because my question is always answered somewhere along the thread.
Anyway, i just want to say a big thankyou to HarryC for providing us with awesome updates of my favorite tower u/c - The Chicago Spire!

I am starting to seriously consider changing trades. But, then again this is the worst it has been in years. So, it can only get better... Right?

Is there a specific (like WTC3&4) when the core foundations and the slurry/secant walls have to be finished? Are they working on weekends too and how many hours a day are they working?

I read something about March (beginning, end?) some pages ago, is this true?
