Trump International Hotel & Tower



McHugh poured more than 180,000 cubic yards of concrete as the concrete subcontractor for the 92-story Trump Tower, which is the tallest concrete building in the United States.

The building houses approximately 472 residential condominiums, a 286-unit condominium hotel, a 1,000-space parking garage, and retail space.

Despite the building's size, McHugh worked on a rapid schedule, pouring a floor a week for the building's massive lower levels, and a floor every three days for the upper levels. To handle the volume of concrete and the extreme height, McHugh acquired a 680-horsepower Putzmeister concrete pump, one of the first of its kind in the U.S., to drive the river of concrete up through more than 1,700 feet of tubing known as slick lines and keeping 35,000 pounds of material flowing through it.
