    The hotel tower crane came down this weekend. This gives a good view on the height difference of the two buildings.

    Concrete vs Steel is a big debate on lots of projects. Here is a quick rundown on Healthcare related steel vs concrete: The best way to make a tall building cheap is to use concrete with LOTS of post tensioned steel. This allows you to use less rebar, less concrete. The downside to this is that post tensioned steel is NOT GOING TO MOVE. Once you put tension on it, relocation becomes EXTREMELY expensive. Healthcare Facilities like to make changes to their buildings. Moving bathrooms, labs, etc happen ALL the time in these buildings. If your slabs or beams are post tensioned then you are going to be extremely restricted in where you can put stuff. This building is using concrete shear walls in the stairs and elevator tower to help with the rigidity of the structure. This is a hybrid design which helps reduce the amount of cross bracing or moment frame welding required. There are a bunch of other reasons, but I should probably get back to work so this will have to do for now.......

    I wonder what drives a builder to use steel instead of concrete when they build something like this? Looks like the elevator shafts are concrete but the rest is steel.

    I have no inside information, but feel good about this building not changing its facade. They are really targeting Chinese capital, and the fact that ICBC just moved into a full-floor at Williams Tower tells me Houston is continuing to be a big gateway market for Asian investment. I wouldn't be surprised if the equity partner came from China and then ICBC provided the construction loan. Failed to reference, but HBJ article states: 'The Houston office is expected to offer corporate lending, real estate lending, cash management and credit card financial services'

    I can see why they asked to have it removed. there was one picture of a woman in a bathrobe, and a man in a dress shirt. the second to last episode of game of thrones was on the TV. Obviously, they wanted to be considerate to anyone that hadn't already seen that episode.

    Asked a worker about this site and he said it will be a 13 story precast using a crawler crane to construct it since tower cranes don't have the capacity to handle the precast pieces.
