In trying to stay ahead of the weather, we set out to Randall's Island on Wednesday to pour the concrete footings for "City Pillars". It turned out to be an exquisite day and everything went smoothly. My long time fabricator, Sean Hart from KBC- Design/Build NYC, oversaw this very vital stage in the process.
It may have been overkill, but in the end, I decided to hire a cement truck. Initially I was nervous about this phase of the project but my fears turned out to be ill founded. The driver was super friendly, punctual and managed to drive right up to the job site without incident.
Since we had pre-leveled all the footings in place, the cement pour was very quick and efficient. With the pour completed, we double checked to make sure everything was plumb and then covered our work in expectation of the rain.
