Great watch! Check out this really cool time-lapse video showing the construction of thyssenkrupp Elevator (TKE) headquarters and state-of-the-art elevator test tower. The is part of TKE’s North American headquarters at The Battery Atlanta and, at 420 feet tall, is the tallest elevator test tower in the Western Hemisphere. Another high-profile project we are proud to call our own.
Topped out in mid-March of 2020 after approximately eight weeks of continuous slipform pours from a moving formwork platform, the 74-ft-long by 56-ft-wide tower core rises 398.5 ft from a 16-in.-thick mat slab founded with bedrock anchors approximately 55 ft below grade. The process used nine different concrete mixes totaling just over 7,130 cu yd to consistently form the structure’s 18-in.-thick exterior walls and 10-in.-thick interior walls separating nine test shafts.
