Roosevelt University Academic Center

To meet the challenge of placing over 16,000 cubic yards of concrete over 33 stories on this cramped urban site, McHugh marshaled its expertise to design a unique concrete placing device to allow for pouring the core without using a full-sized placing boom. Other innovations included the use of a self-climbing core form system that rose without the need for any crane time and designing the core forms with a working platform to accommodate loads from reinforcing steel laydown and suspended access stairs.
