That Is Not Wood Is It?

On the West and North end of WTC 2, as well as WTC 3, there are areas of basement flooring that are tan and look like plywood going over 2x4s. I cant imagine that buildings like this would be using wood like that; but, it looks like it in the pictures above. Is that just tan colored metal or what?

Thanks,
Bugs

Kanto, your posts are not productive at all, so try to limit them if you can.

Most of the time the wood is only used for concrete forms.

That's no way to speak to another forumer who may be just learning about construction. I wonder how you would have felt if your teachers spoke to you like that. It crushes the spirit, is cruel and unnecessary.

Either ignore the question OR answer it, but don't add an insult if you're going to answer anyway.

The foundations are more than ready now to finish the basement and then begin to grow.

After the WTC tower one this is the prettiest in my opinion.

Very good images, and moving forward this work, fortunately the WTC will not stop growing until its completion.

This complex will be a new face, new york, new views, new sockets, etc.

While I certainly agree with this I think he could word his comments a little differently. He could've asked why wood is being used in the construction of a skyscraper instead of saying it's weird when he doesn't know anything about the construction industry.

He used the shrugging shoulders icon. I can't fault him for wanted to know, what was going on. I find myself lost most times, and I've done light construction before.
