The Balfour Beatty US California Division has successfully completed a concrete pour consisting of 8,218 cubic yards of concrete at the 42-story Transbay Block 9 residential tower project site at 500 Folsom St. in San Francisco. The amount of concrete poured is equivalent to 32 miles of a four-foot-wide sidewalk. The non-stop pour started at 1:59 a.m. on Saturday, June 17 and concluded at 1:56 a.m. on Sunday, June 18. The milestone marks the largest concrete pour on record for the company’s California vertical construction business unit.

Forty-five trucks, driven by 90 drivers on alternating schedules, delivered 888 truckloads of the concrete to five concrete pumps strategically located on the project site. The pour covered a 30,000-square-foot surface area to form the mat foundation situated 75 feet—or six floors—below the ground surface. Concrete thickness of the mat foundation ranged from 10 feet beneath the tower to five feet outside the tower. The mat is also comprised of 2.5 million pounds of reinforcing rebar.
And a video:

minesweeper - a fantastic video. I've watched concrete pours in my neighborhood in real time. The fast video shows better how complicated the process is.

looking into the ever-shallower hole...



the core has emerged above sidewalk level, chasing that of its big sister 400 Folsom into the sky

There has not been a photo of this construction site posted since October 2017 so I took a walk to see the progress. This is a building that will break the skyline in my view in a few months.

Having broken ground at the end of 2016, the 55-story tower and two podium buildings rising along Folsom Street, on Transbay Block 8 between Fremont and First, are now expected to be ready for occupancy in the second quarter of 2019.

not too much change since Jerry's pic...



might as well throw in one of the 'three cores' shots here, since 500 Folsom is the one in the foreground
