Abstract:The Westbury Condominium Project is a forty story reinforced concrete tower surrounded by a five-story garage. The horizontal dimensions of the tower are only 41 x 41 ft. The design and construction management team worked within rigid parking, set-back, and height restrictions to produce a marketable building design on a difficult site in a heavily developed area. The contractor used time-lapse film analysis, video observation and an ongoing work crew training and motivation program to achieve a sustained 1.25 working day per tower floor construction cycle.
