It looks like they focused their effort on getting the biggest office tower built upSo is the entire build at grade now? That only took, what, 3 years?
the excavation here seemed to fly and then the below grade work seemed to move slow. I understand the scale here is unlike anything else really anywhere, but even then they seem to have taken their time.
The Well Canopy - A first glimpse….
Across the Atlantic, preassembled in the factory on the ground, the distinctive diagrid canopy structure takes shape.
Shortly, the prefinished individual parts of the 145m long and 80m wide roof structure, only to the extent that they fit in sea containers and can be transported, will set off in the direction of Toronto.
In Toronto we are waiting for you, with anchor bolts placed as near as possible, that will connect the steel columns to their reinforced concrete foundations 20 m above the ground. Soon, the 9th tower crane on site will facilitate the final assembly.
In many ways an incredible moment. Over 2 years ago, a group with a commitment to each other decided to go and make this happen. Geographically separated, the teams of Josef Gartner and Deltera hardly met before the pandemic and never worked together prior. During normal conditions this would be extremely difficult, in COVID times tenfold.
This canopy was our task. The effective interaction and successful coordination during these unprecedented times became our journey of accomplishment.
