Week 30 in the ongoing Ⓢ series, which follows the construction of a new 13-story senior living building in San Francisco. This is a #construction #timelapse with various closeups and "sub-time-lapses" at various speeds, condensing the week of August 24 - 29, 2020, into about 48 minutes.
This week is a mixture of things we've seen before as well as new things. Occasional corny jokes that I couldn't resist putting in, sorry.
One of the new activities is grinding the ceilings flat where there won't be any drop ceiling. Another is a surprising amount of gravel being delivered, which is used as filler for built-up slabs on the ground floor. (Sometimes styrofoam is used for that but gravel is actually cheaper when weight doesn't matter.) We'll be seeing even more gravel in future episodes. Probably the most interesting new thing is a spider (crane), which will be used to install curtain wall, starting in the next episode. We don't see any of that actual curtain wall until next week, but this week we see them preparing for it.
The site continues to be impacted by poor air quality due to smoke from the California wildfires of 2020. The severity depends upon wind direction, which can change from hour to hour. There are actually two good days on Wednesday and Thursday when the ocean air wins out and drives the smoke away to the east, but it is short-lived as the smoke returns on Friday.
