...and naturally so, since I don't think any contractor and/or developer is expecting to deal with an unintentional fire.Not to join the naysayers, I understand a lot of the reasons why this has moved so slow, but that being said, this contractor seems to be a bit in over their heads. A least they finished the blue stuff on that side of the elevator podium.
Welp...they probably have spare form somewhere, maybe due to space limitation they don't have it on site. And maybe the rig that was to carry it here is hanging out at Queen's Park for the weekend...Agreed on all points. Just thinking if your project is reliant in large part on eight super columns, maybe you have an extra set of forms, just in case they get accidentally damaged. Because it’s possible that could happen in any number of ways. Or maybe it’s cheaper to delay the project for several weeks. IDK. All I’ve built is a swing set.
Take the number of forms on the job site, A. Multiply by the probability of one catching fire, B. Multiply by the cost of the associated delay, C. A times B times C is equal to X. If X is less than the cost of a redundant form, they don't buy one.It was self deprecating. But if that were to happen, I go down to the lumber yard and replace what I need. But this is not that. This is a project worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Maybe a little redundancy wouldn’t be such a bad thing. And what kind of job site let’s this happen? When the majority of materials in that area are concrete and metal, how does it happen?! But like I said…

Most people who bought here probably don't live in Toronto. They put this out to make their foreign investors think progress is being made lol. On a serious note, so happy that it sounds like the concrete pour is going to happen today! Let's just hope the trucker convoy in Toronto doesn't somehow disrupt this any further!
Lots of workers around but no pouring going on as of right now.

Makes me wonder that they granted it so a certain other party can't occupy it. Or least that seems to be a convenient conclusion from a more /tinfoil perspective. Either way, I'm not complaining. <3Lots of workers around but no pouring going on as of right now.
Edit; workers say no pour happening
