This weekend was the first phase of the Brighton i360 foundation pour. A total of 2500 tonnes of concrete was poured into the foundations over 12 hours starting at 6am on Saturday morning. On average a cement truck was coming on site every 5 minutes to one of 3 pumps. The pumps can put the concrete anywhere in the foundation. There was a small group of men for each pump using vibrators to remove air from the concrete and to make it level. I was on site taking pictures and I also shot a time-lapse of the pour.
I’ve been working for the Brighton i360 for almost a year now. I’ve previously posted pictures from my visit to Cif in Holland where the tower is being made and I also posted posted the first 8 month of a time-lapse which is documenting the entire build.
