Wednesday June 15 Notice

The L Tower  Level 6 slab is now scheduled to be poured one Wednesday June 15 and it is anticipated working will go past 7:00 pm.

A note on concrete pours:

In relation to any concrete pour, after the trucks that have delivered the concrete leave, the construction crews must finish the freshly poured slab.  This process involves the concrete finishers waiting until the concrete hardens enough (1-3 hours sometimes more, depending on ambient temperature) to allow the finishing machines on top of the slab to provide a smooth level concrete surface.  If this were not done the concrete would harden creating a deficient structural component, jeopardizing the integrity of tower construction.
