checking the spec's on the rotary girders
this thursday i went along on a site visit, with some co-workers, to chula vista. we went to check on the progress of the steel construction on a community/rec center that we are working on. most of the structure is exposed steel, so we went out to make sure everything was coming together correctly. a couple of months ago i had the [pleasure] of reviewing and checking the shop drawings for this building. i learned fast how much communication place a part, between the engineer, architect, and contractor. overall it was great to get out of the office and onto a site. i decided to take my camera and was able to take a few shots. as you can see, i changed most of them to black and white. i was going for sort of [lunchmen on beam in new york 1932] look, you know, that one picture, anyway. i'm not sure if i achieved it,...........maybe if we would have had some tools.
