The radioman on the left is in contact with the crane operator
while the mixer operator loads the hopper with a fresh batch of concrete.
(This is a three-image-stitch, shot through a 6 inch gap in the barrier on Dalhousie.)

One would expect deserted streets,
but a random capture from the webcam at 1:00 am
finds someone crossing the intersection.

Looking north, across Gould, from the 2nd floor of the Rogers building;
the yellow poles on the lower floors shore-up the concrete while it cures.
At the current rate, the third floor will be completed by the end of November
and the fourth floor, by the end of December.

The forms for the south wall of the 4th floor are erected.
Industry practice is to pour a new floor every three weeks
(before the forms are removed).

Some final adjustments on the third floor forms while
the scaffolding and forms for the fourth floor advance north.

I hope they remember to dismantle the crane
and fill the holes when the building is completed.

HVAC ducts are being installed on first floor, just north of the main auditorium.
The slanting floor of the auditorium is visible behind the right-most yellow barrel.
