Libeskind steel

There's one set of shop drawings I'm glad I don't have to deal with - check out the number of bolted connections. Not much steel erected yet, but I'll be swinging by with the camera at some point:

Yep, that's part of the ROM steel framing. That's the only shot I've got to hand, but I'm still trying to blag a site visit. Will have the digital camera to hand.

Hello. I am an Ironworker currently residing in Toronto. I was involved in the steel erection of the ROM expansion. Our boys were more than cabable of performing this task and did so dilligently. Sometimes however, it would have been nice to drag an architect up on the steel and ask them to show us how a certain connection was to be bolted up, but otherwise it was a fun and challenging erection......I always said to the boys working "If you thing OUR job is difficult, try being the one doing the cladding and fitting the glass on this monstrosity"

As far as appearance goes, I am all for the contrast between old and new styles. However, I don't think anyone realized completly the beautiful brickwork that this building was covering (It cannot be replaced with todays tradesmen) and the contrast of the antique wrought Iron fencing and archways in the park beside it leaves alot to be desired.

BTW. check out Walters Inc. for pictures of this site from the shop, through to the topping lift
