I meant the GS Tower in Jersey City. I checked Google Maps, and the GS Tower is indeed very close.

Yes, indeed. And one of the two original top cranes has also lost its boom..

Looks like the fireproofing crew is back on site, blanket went up one floor above the current cladding work.

Why is the cladding not going up a whole floor, if you know what I mean? Because at one side the cladding is about 9 stories higher than at the other side.

Because there is a crane attached to the eastern side (see here: http://archives.earthcam.com/archive...gzmpr288_8.jpg).

That's why the NE corner cladding always lags behind. But this crane is disassembled at the moment, so soon the cladding there will catch up and rise uniformly in the near future (except for the section where the elevators are)

Looks like all spandrel (is that right?) beams are in place so when the weather gets better we might hope for new steel to come

Before that they need to get the floor and filler beams on position and metal deck placed.

i guess the real saving grace is that Crane 4's location and the size of the recessed area will allow Crane 2 to hang iron all the time and Crane 4 to raise material to its deck.

in short, it will go vertical faster.

id then expect Crane 4 to do large mechanical picks. (i am assuming that air handling units and other things will go on that outside area. (unless someone knows it is for something else?)

So if I understand correctly the model is like this:

1st perimeter and core columns
2nd perimeter and core spandrel beams
3rd floor beams
4th filler beams (what's a filler beam? )
5th floor metal deck
6th new perimeter and core columns
etc.

Am I right or am I missing something?

etc.

Am I right or am I missing something?
-erect columns in whichever order the building is sequenced (typically in 1+ bays, covering two vertical floors)
-header beams and spandrels (headers form out the bays in each floor, spandrels are on the perimeter), on the first vertical floor
-stringer beams (fillers), first vertical floor
-hoist deck to first vertical floor
- headers and fillers on second vertical floor
-hoist deck to second vertical floor
-bolt both floors
-hang plumb cables at top of columns across bays, plumb steel
-plumbness survey
-survey ok? snap TC bolts on both floors
-shake out deck on second floor to create new working floor, shoot down deck to make secure
-move raising gang equipment to new working floor
-hoist next two elevations of steel to new working floor
-shakeout new steel on working floor (organize for erection)
-raise safety netting system (if required)
-begin erecting the next two elevations
-deck the first floor of the previously erected elevations
-install perimeter cable system both floors of the previously erected elevations
-detail deck of both the first and second floor of previous sequence (pour stop, screw side laps of deck)
-shoot shear studs on the detailed deck of both elevations (1st then 2nd)

repeat
