McGraw-Hill Construction | ENR - Angles, Stresses, Strains Add Up to Beehive of Activity In New York, 2 July 2003 [cached]
The 15-ft-deep, built-up box truss was extremely challenging to install because "it was an impossible site," says Franz Safford, a principal in the Tenafly, N.J., office of Advanced Structures Inc., the wall's engineer-of-record and installer of the cable system, as a subcontractor to W&W Glass Systems Inc., Nanuet, N.Y.
The 45-ton truss was brought in on a 100-ft-long custom rig with a steerable rear dolly.A 650-ton hydraulic crane had to be positioned to satisfy the truss pick and the girder for the inner wall's attachment at the base.There was 1 in. of clearance between the counterweights and the four-story sidewalk bridge as the crane swung around into final lift position, says Safford.
Once the truss landed, workers tilted it to the correct angle and installed permanent bracing struts to the building.The installation took one day.
It took three or four times longer to tension the horizontal cables, says Safford.Fillet welds on the building structure-not shown on drawings-interfered with the jacking plates, he says.
