As financial services professionals, we obviously have a thing for numbers. These figures from our friends at Weigand Construction are no exception!
Information from underground (utilities installed along Webster Street):
- 335 = linear feet of storm sewer
- 796 = linear feet of 54-inch combo sanitary sewer
- 114 = linear feet of sanitary sewer
Data from down in the dirt:
- 5,300 = loads of dirt from inside retention walls, not including utility spoils
- 58,000 = total number of cubic yards those loads equaled
- 29 = trucks at the site on Sept. 12
- 300 = loads they hauled in one day
More fun and figures:
- The south shear tower pile cap was poured in December 2014. This single pile cap, which supports the south stair elevators and the tower crane, consists of:
- More than 400 cubic yards of concrete
- 135 25-foot deep auger cast piles
- Between 60 and 70 tons of reinforcing steel
- 1,025 auger cast piles support the Skyline structure and total nearly 4.7 miles in length
- 1,300 pre-fabricated precast concrete structural beams, columns and deck sections are being fabricated
- The largest single beam weighs 83,000 pounds

Our friend Larry Weigand of Weigand Construction sent us this photo of a 275-ton crane being built for use at the Ash Skyline Plaza site. In the next couple of days, the pre-cast concrete will start to build the parking garage, and we'll see the structure take form over the next few weeks.
