Vista Tower Mat Foundation Pour

Over the weekend crews poured 3,541 cubic yards of concrete to complete the 10ft thick mat foundation at Vista Tower. Hats off to the men and women involved! The previous record in Chicago for placing concrete was 350 CY in an hour. On Saturday, McHugh poured 700 CY the first hour and 920 CY the second hour. Amazing work!
