Thoughts, pictures and news on the Brigham City, Utah LDS Temple
Friday, December 10, 2010
The second level of forms is going up to continue pouring concrete on what was poured last week. I suspect that the relatively mild weather we have been have (after the cold blast during Thanksgiving) has been a help to the construction, also.
I believe these footings, north of the temple proper are for the underground parking.
Can you tell that I am fascinated by rebar?
The amount of steel in the temple is simply amazing!
The "x" rebar above this opening in the south west corner is interesting. I suspect it is also to resist bending moments induced in the structure during ground movement (aka earthquakes).
