Starting to Pour Top Floor Slab Concrete on the Steel and Poroton Blocks

Following on the work from last week where they prepared the top floor base, they began to pour the concrete.

The concrete crane is here to distribute the concrete. It gets a supply of concrete from a truck that sits behind it and pipes it up to the top floor.

Before the concrete trucks arrived, a first step was to lay a grid of rebar on top of the Poroton blocks that was tied into the rest of the rebar. Here’s a picture of the grid in place, after they had started the pour.
