5.0 out of 5 stars So, THAT'S how it's done!, November 4, 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Skyscraper: The Making of a Building (Paperback)
The problems the architects have with the engineers and the "customer". How it is physically erected and the logistics of getting permits, labor and materials. The leverage that major, future tenants of the skyscraper have on its design. The personal experiences of the those responsible for its construction, from the site foreman to the leasing agents, and how they deal with delays and cost overruns.
It is simply an interesting story of the building of a skyscraper on Manhattan, from the ground, up. I've always wondered, vaguely, about the process, and this book nicely satisfies me in terms I can grasp.
