Astor House Construction Update: October 7, 2016

This week construction crews focused on installing the steel columns and beams in the building. Both beams on the first floor are in place. Next, the construction crew will begin fastening joists to the beams with new joist hangers. On the second floor, engineers and construction team prep for installation of the new east-west support beam. In the north basement, concrete walls have been poured into casts. Now, crews have removed the entry stairs and are preparing to install the new risers. Once the new stairs are complete, workers will finish pouring the last section of retaining wall.
