I like it as well. Thankfully, it's not a twin like so many other tower developments in Calgary.

Jamieson Place Site Visit last Monday Aug 31.


Waiting for the manlift to take me to the top.


Soffit work which is like 15m above the ground. Scissor lifts DO wobble and its greater when you are that high up. :slob:


Inside the lift going up about half way. It shakes and rattles during the ride.


Rooftop is a mess with unitized panels with granite. These will be for the spire cladding.


The pads for the window washing rails and access ladders which will be installed in the spire.


Openings for the 3 cooling towers. The spire is in the background.




Steel structure for the spire. It will be accessible eventually to the top tier.
They will also bolt in the granite panels onto the steel and someareas might be drywalled as well and of course the roof construction. The floor of the spire is the roofing.





A closer look at how the spire will be built and how it will look in elevation. These are elevations and sections from the drawings. I may have to take these down later.


The rooftop of the skygarden and the process of roofing construction. You can see the guys tied into the safety anchors.




This is the mechanical floor above the top office floor which is a 5.5m space.
There are some huge ducts and huge units in here.


Curtainwall installation for the feature stripes at front elevation. Survey station units to make sure these are plumb and straight.


The three round pipes are boiler flues
.

I think these Pumps are for fire suppression systems. Or maybe for glycol for cooling.



The boiler units and the series of tubes which run the water over and over while being heated up.



Prepping a boiler for installation of the tubes, notice the flue above the guy.
Second pic is the torch which heats up this entire space. 3000 degrees F, like an afterburner. Ppl have to enter this thing to do maintenance and repairs which would be scary.



A view of one of the corner skygardens which is about two stories and probably will be used for conference or common space for the tenant.
Notice the roofdrains behind the stud work.



Installing drywall in the skygarden.


Furring around columns, you can see roofdrain poking from the slab.


Ever seen a crane opening from below? These are all the braces which has to support the slabs for a few floors everytime the crane jacks itself up. The steel base for the crane to sit on is way at the top there.


Louvres for the mid-mechanical floor.


A tenant who took the first 14floors wanted their own feature stairwell so one's being built. I think it is going to be a glass stairwell.


The regular stairwell looking down several floors.







Welcome to the winter garden. Coming along nicely, soon the planters and water features willbe installed. Especially the devonian like planters on the backside. This will look awesome once done.



Anybody remember my old avatar. This time its the real thing and all the different grades of granite for the elevator cores do look fantastic in person. Especially the steel feature canopies over the lobby and main entry.


Hy's Steakhouse will be located here.



Much is coordinated for structure, mechanical, plumbing, fire sprinklers and electrical. All within that ceiling. The red marks on the slab underside were for xrays. They had to install additional steel and wanted to make sure these werent bolted into any critical rebar areas. There will be a large artwork hung from this upon finishing..


Jamieson Place is looking pretty good. A great view this will be once the lights are running.

That is it for the visit. Hope this one as usual serves as a good learning aspect for our enjoyment of architecture and skyscraper construction. Enjoy!


Pics from Bokimon..

Oh! I think the design is very nice!

Is it me, or does anyone else detect a kind of Art Deco sensibility about this building ... especially the twin finials on the top ????
