BUILDING A CONCRETE HIGH-RISE IN CHICAGO

Episode DPEX-201F

The host of PROJECT XTREME - Matt Blashaw - may be a carpenter on single family homes, but he's never faced the challenge of erecting a 15 story concrete condominium. At the construction site of what will soon be "1555 Wabash" in the fast-growing South Loop of Chicago, Matt joins the construction crew to do every grueling job in the process - from tying off massive grids of steel rebar, to pouring liquid concrete while hanging 15 stories above the streets of Chicago, to trying to hold onto a runaway monster concrete polisher.
