Today the first steel went up at the construction site near our office in Dublin.
When I woke up this morning I checked the construction camera as I knew that today would be the day.
The building will be three floors, and you can see here that the verticals go all the way up to where the roof will be. My guess is that tomorrow they will be placing the third floor cross beams in this section.
I stood and watched them place a couple beams. It is an interesting process. I am really glad that this is not the type of work I do as I am a bit afraid of heights. However, they have good safety equipment and do this everyday and you can really tell that by watching them.
The Big Red Crane is going to be very busy in the coming weeks.
