Galter Carriage House May 19, 2006
Galter Carriage House May 19, 2006
Brandenburg Demolishes 27-Story Building Story by Ryan Johnson May 8, 2006 Construction Digest Former hospital building in Chicago is razed for future development Demolishing a 27-story building presents huge challenges, but when you consider tearing down a structure in downtown Chicago it can create even more difficulties. Brandenburg Industrial Service Co. was hired as a subcontractor by Power/Jacobs, a construction manager, to do just that: remove the 85-plus-year-old Galter Carriage House on the downtown campus of Northwestern Memorial Hospital to make way for future development. Brandenburg is no stranger to working in the congested downtown area, as the well-known demolition company was responsible for the destruction of the Chicago Sun-Times building in 2005 to make way for the 92-story Trump International Hotel & Tower. According to Kelly Sullivan, director of media relations at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, the Galter Carriage House was built in 1926 as a five-story parking garage situated along E. Chicago Avenue in downtown Chicago. In 1960, additional floors were added to create a 27-story high-rise building that would eventually be used in part by Northwestern Memorial Hospital to house employees and patients. Lower levels of the Galter Carriage House were also used for retail and commercial purposes. Eli's Place For Steak, which had occupied space in the building since 1966, closed in the summer of 2005 in preparation for the demolition. It has been a popular spot for celebrities to visit on their way through the Windy City. John O'Keefe, marketing manager at Brandenburg, says the $3.5-million project involves the asbestos abatement and demolition of the Galter Carriage House with more than 430,000 square feet of space spread out across 27 floors. Brandenburg crews started their work in September 2005, with an estimated finish date of June 2006. Street Safety "One of the keys (in demolition) is protection, especially in a downtown urban area," O'Keefe says. "For the Northwestern Memorial Hospital, in the area that is facing the street, we had the area set up with scaffolding so any debris that accidentally fell outside the building wouldn't hit a pedestrian or traffic. You need to set up all of your protective barrier structures before you begin your demolition." There is always something you have to protect on these downtown urban projects," O'Keefe explains. "That is what makes them hard. You don't have a lot of room to work and it makes it difficult. It is much different from an industrial site where you typically have a large, open area around the building to work with." Before any demolition was started on-site, Brandenburg crews were required to remove asbestos that was present in the structure. Crews found the hazardous material in floor tile, insulation surrounding pipes, and in some of the building's doors. O'Keefe says this material was sorted and removed separately from the general garbage and demolition debris. After the environmental portion of the project was completed, crews made sure the electricity to the building was cut off or isolated, as well as the sewer and water service. Some electrical service was left in the building for lighting to do the demolition work and some water for fire prevention. "These are isolated because one of the most dangerous things in demolition is cutting into utilities that are live; you want to stay away from that," O'Keefe explains. Compact Loaders Perform Bulk Of Demolition Work With little room to work on-site, the equipment needed to carry out a project of this magnitude needs to be compact and versatile. Brandenburg has utilized a small fleet of Bobcat skid-steer loaders and attachments to assist with the demolition of the Galter Carriage House, according to O'Keefe. He says the company typically uses machines like Bobcat loaders, starting at the top of the structure as operators demolish the floors and eventually work their way down. "On every demolition project, we have had at least one Bobcat loader," O'Keefe says. "The Bobcat loader is probably the most versatile machine we have." But how do these compact loaders access the top of a 27-story downtown building? There are a couple of ways to transport these machines and attachments. O'Keefe says one way is to simply lift the machines to the top of the building with a crane. "We lift them up to the top and we drop them off one-by-one," O'Keefe says. In some cases, there might be a freight elevator still working, or construction managers may build a freight elevator on the side of the building to carry the machines to the top." According to O'Keefe, before the Bobcat loaders are used on any floor, a structural engineer uses a survey to determine if the floor structures are strong enough to hold the 8,400-pound machines. Once deemed workable, the Bobcat loaders travel across these floors and use hydraulic
Authentic Japanese Food Preparation
Authentic Japanese Food Preparation
While Japanese steakhouses are regularly noted for their rice and vegetables, seafood is also abundant as Japan is surrounded by water. In this photo, the cook is preparing a fish fillet with Japanese flare. The chef’s performance while cooking draws many consumers to eat at these restaurants. In addition to these entertainment eateries, the Asian culture has brought sushi to the American diet. Such ingredients are displayed in the photo above. A distinctive feature of the Japanese diet is the unique preparation of meat, such as seafood. The main concept of meat is best explained by this proverb: “Eat it raw first of all, then grill it, and boil it as a last resort.” Raw fish has been a delicacy for the Japanese, referring back to ancient times. The primary goal of Japanese cooking is to retain the natural flavor, adding only minimal artificial aid when needed. The chef in this photo is fixing this fish to be grilled to acquiesce to American taste. However, a religion called Shinto, which is common to that of Buddhism, adopted a philosophy against the consumption of animal flesh. Meat consumption was not entirely banned from Japan. Professional hunters that lived in the mountainous areas were allowed to shoot and eat wild game, predominately wild boar and deer. The lack of animal breeding for food maintained a low consumption. Fowls had been regarded by the Shinto religion as God’s sacred messengers to announce the dawn, rather than be used for food. It was not until the fifteenth century that the tradition of eating both the meat and eggs or the domestic fowl was revived. In an ordinary meal, vegetables constitute side dishes accompanying rice. Vegetarian diets rely mainly on various foods produced from soybeans. These foods include mushrooms, sea plants, sesame, walnuts, and vegetables. Many of these are pictured before the chef on what seems to be a smorgasbord. Japanese food is primarily served in rations available to be picked up and eaten with chopsticks. During the Edo period, the Japanese food culture was developed among wealthy merchants and artisans. Because the styles of cooking, preparation techniques, table settings, and manners were molded around the lives of fortunate consumers, the Japanese food culture is sophisticated in these areas. Japanese haute cuisine restaurants came into being to cater to the merchants who economically controlled the society. The majority of these restaurants resided in the major cities of Edo, Osaka, and Kyoto. Today Japanese food cultures are displayed in multitude in cities in the U.S. and around the world.
