I think it's interesting how new the 8-year-old Conseco Fieldhouse still feels and how old the 24-year-old RCA Dome feels. I think The Luke and Conseco Fieldhouse (along with Victory Field) will be around a lot longer than the RCA Dome.

The RCA Dome will be gone in 2009.

I think you misunderstood me. I meant that the Luke and Conseco would be around a lot longer in age than the RCA Dome -- 26 sports seasons is a very short life for a stadium -- not that they would simply be standing after the RCA Dome is gone.

A friend working on site tells me that much of the work is being done inside the building at this point, so don't be too worried if you don't see any exterior progress.

I know you don't really care but my company is making the architectural joint systems that will allow for thermal/seismic movement of this stadium. So every time you walk over one of those silver seams in the walkways, think of me.

Thanks for the insider info.

But it would seem to make more sense to finish the roof before working on the interior of the structure because it would be protected from the elements. That is the way the AZ Cardinals' stadium was constructed.

Actually, I asked Mike about this today and he said that there were a few rumors and some speculation about the roof, and at this point it seems as if the roof is actually going to be finished last (again, just a rumor, don't hold me to it).

Here are some quick tidbits for you all.

The stadium is 60% complete. Now approaching the home stretch.

There are approximately 1,319 workers on site. All work in shifts, for a cycle of 24 hours a day, six days a week excluding Sundays.

The pace of work is slightly ahead of schedule.

Wow, only 60% finished? This stadium has been under construction for almost two years and is supposed to open in one year. Most of the structure is built, save the roof.

And I didn't know LOS was a 24-hour construction site. Is this a recent development?

And why are the workers increasing at this stage? Wouldn't it make sense to have a lot of workers at the beginning to get the superstructure built?

I think the large number of workers is probably because the work is coming down to details at this point. I'm guessing it takes relatively few people to pour concrete compared to things like electrical wiring.

That makes sense. I guess we are entering the home stretch with this structure.

That's correct. They're really vamping up the work at this point now that the core of the building is finished.

I drove past the stadium site this afternoon and the smaller trusses that hold up the permanent roof are now in place.

One thing I noticed today before getting on to I-70 east at West Street was that the three aluminum "ducts" that stick out are up on the south west side. I had not noticed this until today, and I have to admit it looks really bad ass!!
