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!
