Pouring Concrete - Bottom of Pali

Today the Leither Poma team successfully poured the concrete for the bottom terminal of the new Pallavicini Lift. That is a lot of concrete. The bottom will have an LP Alpha terminal very similar to the bottom of Lenawee, top of Beavers and top of Zuma Lifts. Two steel towers will support the drive station or motor room. Each of those towers has a very, very large concrete foundation most of which is buried. The biggest part of any lift, in both size and weight, is buried and most people never see it.

It's a history of AB. I bought it from the website. I'm about halfway through it now. Enjoying it! Lb
