Beaching new heights in Virginia

20 March 2008

The Westin Virginia Beach Town Center will soon be tallest building in the state of Virginia. Rising out of the building, which will house a hotel and residential condos, is a Terex Peiner SSK315081 tower crane owned by P&J Arcomet of Manasis, VA. The crane, rising 560 fleet above the ground at its top height, has been assisting in pouring concrete and construction of the shell of the building, which was designed with reinforced concrete. Century Concrete provided the post tension, shear walls and structural slab for the building and parking garage, which are slated for a late 2007 completion. From the tip of its spires, the building will stand about 500 fleet tall.
