Although much has been written about New York's Pier 57 and the new techniques used in its construction, little has been said about the fact that through the five months from November, 1951, through March, 1952, regardless of near zero temperatures, concrete was placed at 60 F and steam cured with no loss of time or ultimate strength. This brief description of this work is not posed as a standard text on the subject of winter concreting but is submitted as a record of how one job was done sucessfully.
