June 2018 Community Update
Shoring and excavation are moving along well at our Via Bloor community, with the anticipation of completing all excavation work in August. The crane installation will also take place in August, allowing for the start of the concrete pour soon after.
To erect a tower crane on a construction site, the crane mast is set into a foundation with steel pedestals. Concrete is poured and the crane is then ready to be erected once concrete has finished curing. A crane mast section can vary in length from 3 to 12 meters and are added to the base until the appropriate height is achieved; an operator cabin can then be added. The crane height will change throughout the construction of the community as the concrete is poured to form each floor.
