Foundation casting complete

The final portion of the foundation of Reykjavík’s concert hall and conference centre was cast on 16 June. The casting required nearly 1,300 m3 of concrete.

Two cement pumps, 20 carpenters, and 21 cement mixers were needed to complete the job. The crew began pumping concrete just before 6:00 a.m. and were finished just before 2:00 that afternoon.

The project is proceeding apace; over 30 steel workers are on the job, most of them Russian, and more are expected. There are also more than 30 Polish carpenters, and more are expected to join them as well. In addition, there are several general workers, most of them summer employees. IPC employees — office staff, foremen, group leaders, technologists, and engineers, as well as cafeteria staff — are gradually settling into the work camp area.

The next phases of construction will include casting the walls and floors; building up the steel structure; laying electrical wiring, plumbing, and drainage pipes; installing the ventilation system; and covering the exterior of the building with Ólafur Elíasson’s “glass sculpture.”
