    Re: FOF-buttresses

    Just work around it. They've got post-tensioning strands run through those things (and under the field to the other side if I remember correctly) so they won't really touch them.

    Looking at the floorplans you can see where they they've fit the floorplan in around them.

    Re: FOF-buttresses

    Yup, they'll stay. They can't exactly remove them. They've been integrated into the plan of the new facility. From inside the new facility, you probably won't really notice them - depends if the designers have decided to leave them exposed.

    Whoa, look at the big brain on this guy. I don't know what a pla is. That sounds like architect jargon bs. Try layman's terms Mr. Expert.
