Some of the steel members need modification. A few have been sent back to the fabricator, but others can be adjusted in situ with welding, cutting or drilling. These are common practices on other job sites, but we've mostly eliminated them - especially the field welding - by having the structure fabricated off site. The adjustments seem relatively easy for the steel workers. You can see some arresting video of welding on our YouTube channel.
Also today, one of the crew who poured the concrete foundations came by to fill the voids between the slab and column bases with grout. The video of the grouting is destined to go viral.
