General Meeting #1 Agenda

RECAP: Wilshire Grand Tower Tech Tour

IMG_7425

SEACPP and ASCE had the opportunity of attending the Wilshire Grand Tower site after the world record cement pour on Friday, 2/11/2014. The tower is still in the early stages where proper foundations and retaining walls are being set.

Early in the tour we were able to see the 3-D renderings of the proposed tower and all the engineering considerations that are taken when designing a structure. We also got a quick run through of the Turner office followed by the actual tour of the site.

SEACPP is hoping to get more tech tours of the Wilshire Grand Tower as construction continues. So make sure to stay updated when the time comes!

Beginning early Saturday night, more than 2,100 truckloads of 21,200 cubic yards of concrete weighing 82 million pounds — the weight of 250 blue whales, the world’s largest mammal — were poured to form the building’s foundation on the northwest corner of Seventh and Figueroa streets. On hand for the historic event were Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, 14th District Councilman Jose Huizar and Speaker of the California State Assembly John Perez, among others…read more here
