    I'll bet there was a lineup of trucks waiting just out of sight of the camera to move in and keep the concrete flowing!

    Exactly. When they build those monster buildings here in chicago, they are lined up for blocks.
    I find it amazing how the bases can hold up a 90 & 100 story building for decades through all the wind pushing against all that weight.

    I’ve been laying out a project larger than this near Ohare airport. Hey need to pour the floor but want to wait till spring as to not have to pay extra for the winter additives.
    The Storm Traps for the site are the footprint of a decent size building.

    Sounds interesting. I remember when I was doing my Civil Engineering degree and we had a class in concrete design, one of the labs was working with a material that was a fast setting cement. It had originally been developed to repair runways and airport tarmacs. They claimed it hardened quickly enough to support a fully laden 747 within 24hrs of being poured. The additives they've come up with to adjust the properties of the concrete mixes are pretty amazing.
