Encana building takes Shape. Dave achieves sense of Calm
After much construction teasing (the 6 underground floors,) the Encana building is finally taking shape. "The Bow" footprint as well as the first atrium floors have been welded into position. Steady progress is expected to follow in the spring and summer months.
Rendering of the new skyline. The Bow is the big silver one.
Most buildings are concrete core with glass curtain walls on the outside. The Bow is all steel construction which means frenzied cranes hoisting tinker toy frames and a spider web network of steel-work at blistering speed. Fellow construction voyeurs can follow along this spring and summer with a live camera feed.
-with thanks to everyone at "the bow" thread on skyscraper.com for insight, information, pictures and zeal.
