Amaze your friends with this technical term:
Sheet pile.
Seen along the right side of the excavation.

And yes, at college there was much giggling when the ee was replaced with an i.


This excavation goes to below sealevel it was obvious when I was there today that the ocean was higher than the hole.

They were banging in those steel plates just after New Years. The whole ground, including our building (the blue-windowed one at left in HB's photo) shook alarmingly. It really was probably equivalent to a series of magnitude 5.x seismic events in the local area (I was in Seattle during the 6.1 earthquake of March 2001, do have some experience with such things). We were starting to worry about windows shattering, and the pounding was causing some headaches...
Anyway, nothing happened, all was well, they look like they know what they're doing out there, and it remains an constant interesting/distracting view.

Lots of steady progress on this one over the past few months. One of those big t-style construction cranes is going up right now outside my window as I type this... Hopefully one of the pieces doesn't come through my window!

I think that's the same crane that was recently removed from the Mondrian site.

Is this the first time a full size crane has been used at Selkirk? I seem to recall that the 6-storey office building at Gorge and Jutland was built using a mobile crane.

Concert Properties built the newer building that runs parallel to the Galloping Goose. Campbell Construction did the concrete and used the same type of crane there.

Good call Johnny .
It is the same crane and it makes economical sense to move it a few blaock away because it wa sthe right size instead of having a whole new one trucked over from the main land.

I have a shot of Mondrian Crane I took and it was pointing in the same direction as your shot.

I resized them then overlayed my photo onto your shot so it is easy to do theside by side comparrison

Any recent pics of this? Bingo seems to be VV's unofficial shutterbug lately so I'm pointing the finger at him.

Lark used a FM GRU 1760  Tower Crane when building the Seniors Housing.

 

The Concert property had both a Self Erecting Crane (that toppled...) and one of the old timers up like currently.

Just as an FYI Campbell owns at least 3 of these style cranes. Between them and Farmer they are the only companies locally that use these cranes, they are some of the oldest in North America still in operation and date back to the late 50s/early 60s. Most companies that do still use these cranes use them to build log homes...
