It was nice to meet you!  Thanks for coming out.   Here's my photos of the mat pour this morning.        

I forgot I took this one.    

Hines contacted me asking if they can use my photos and videos for their social media.

I would like to understand the close layout of so many columns. Seems like a very tight grid.

And another question, I didn't remember seeing a pad laid out and a slab poured like we normally see on the downtown high-rises. 

Purduengineered?

Just a layman here. . . but. . . I sn’t it usually an either/or proposition?  Either there is a piling foundation or a mat foundation, but not both?  If memory serves me correctly, Aris Market square has a piling base whereas Market Square Tower is built on a mat.

Maybe the soil is soft.

It may not be as substantial as the larger pours we've seen recently, but they're going to have to pour a mat to tie the piles into the base the building. You can see the rebar being laid out and all the bar sticking out of the piles, which will be connected together into grid.

Foundation design on this building with the abundance of drilled piers and a matt foundation can mean a couple of things. One is that the soil may be not as great. Another issue is that if the building is tall and narrow, and "relatively" light, The wind uplift/overturning movement may be a governing load case which could require some of the piers to incur tensile loads. Concurrently the opposite side of the building will take more compression loads. 

Love that good Purduenginerd stuff

Kind of creepy
 

 

and yet in a different context it could be a reference to a very particular bedtime activity. Imagine that setup prior to bringing one home while waiting for the elevator haha. Now thats igniting passion!

Still trying to figure out how much of the skyline this new tower is going to block from Market Square's sky deck and pool. Would suck to have paid rent for the amenities in Market Square including the scenery to now have it obstructed.

Based on the brochure link Urb posted, not much.

Lucky for them it's rent and not mortgage and if you live downtown, you have to know that can happen.

Been to a few job sites where I have to do this. I think its a good idea. Stretching and flexing is certainly cheaper than an OSHA recordable from pulling a muscle. I like it.

 

My company started doing this recently in the office and on job sites. It is done daily and not required but a lot of people choose to participate.

Fun Fact! 

 

#3 bar, Diameter 3/8" 

#4 bar, Diameter 4/8"

#5 Bar, Diameter 5/8"

#6 Bar, Diameter 6/8"

#7 Bar, Diameter 7/8"

#8 Bar, Diameter 8/8"

#9 Bar, Diameter 9/8" (also 1 in^2 in cross area)  - Pre 1940's, #9 bars would traditionally be square 1"x1" bars. 

#10 Bar, Diameter 1.27" (They stopped using the previous numerical system)

#11 bar, Diameter 1.41"

#14 bar, Diameter, 1.693"

#18 bar, Diameter 2.257"

 

Here's a picture of #18 bar I took the other day

That would make a very cool lamp base.
