What All Goes Into Constructing a Skyscraper

Skyscrapers are incredible monuments to human engineering achievement, but today's world does not appreciate them enough. Many take these buildings for granted as an essential part of their cities, but their design is still incredible. Here’s what all goes into constructing a skyscraper.

Site Selection

The first and most essential part of skyscraper construction is choosing the right place to build it. Skyscrapers are enormous projects, so building planners put specific requirements in place to guarantee that the skyscraper fits and doesn’t interfere with other buildings in the area. Part of site selection is examining the soil at the foundation and ensuring that the building does not contribute to pollution in the surrounding area. Other aspects to note include weather conditions, local government policies, and seismic activity.

Planning and Design

After finding the right location, the next phase is planning and engineering. Architects work with civil engineers and designers to put together a plan for the skyscraper that considers all factors. The building has to look nice, be sturdy, and be efficient. An ugly skyscraper with no effective purpose is a failure. These designers and architects also work together to ensure the building will have proper heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, and electricity.

Materials

Once all the designs and blueprints are created, the next step is to gather materials. Skyscrapers require a lot of materials—including concrete, glass, and metal—because they are so massive. To support that weight and ensure they do not fall, skyscrapers are full of metal beams. Metal fabricators use beam drilling and coping machines to construct these beams. Even the slightest imperfection can be detrimental to the building’s structural integrity. Planning a building is an exact science, and acquiring suitable materials can be even more challenging.

Construction

Once the team plans everything and gathers all the materials, the final and most crucial step begins—construction. Each part of the meticulous process guarantees the skyscraper follows the proper regulations, and will stand the test of time. Skyscrapers require many workers moving together simultaneously, each doing a different part of the construction: laying the foundation, installing and welding beams, monitoring weather conditions, and even redirecting traffic. It is a complicated process that they need to do very carefully, and the result is a magnificent building that will stand for years to come.

A skyscraper has many behind-the-scenes factors that go into its construction, and if any person in the process doesn’t give their full attention, the building would not exist. It’s a careful process, but it is still a team effort, and everyone’s work is extremely valuable to bringing that building into existence.

Noon briefing by Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesperson for the Secretary-General. Highlights: - Secretary-General/Burkina Faso - Burkina Faso/Humanitarian - Syria - Iran - Middle East - Yemen - South Sudan - Central African Republic - Rwanda - League of Arab States - Outer Space - Afghanistan - International Day for Universal Access to Information SECRETARY-GENERAL/BURKINA FASO In the statement issued today, the Secretary-General said he deplores the attack on a commercial convoy, escorted by the national armed forces and transporting essential commodities, to the town of Djibo, in Burkina Faso. The attack took place on 26 September near Gaskindé, in the Sahel region of Burkina Faso. The Secretary-General expressed his sincere condolences to the families of the victims, as well as to the people of Burkina Faso. He wished a speedy recovery to those injured. The Secretary-General called on the Burkinabè authorities to spare no effort in identifying and bringing the perpetrators of this heinous attack to justice and calls on all parties to ensure that civilians are spared from the consequences of the conflict. The Secretary-General reiterated the commitment of the United Nations to continue to work with Burkina Faso and international partners to enhance the protection of civilians, address humanitarian challenges, and promote lasting peace and prosperity with respect for human rights. BURKINA FASO/HUMANITARIAN Further on Burkina Faso, the country continues to face a humanitarian crisis, with nearly one fifth of the population urgently in need of aid. Humanitarian needs remain significant, in particular in the Sahel, East, North-Central, and North regions. There are gaps in the provision of food, shelter and essential household items, as well as water, hygiene and sanitation. As of June of this year, more than 1.5 million people are displaced in Burkina Faso as a consequence of the increasing insecurity in the country. Nearly two quarters of the displaced people are children. Burkina Faso’s 2022 Humanitarian Response Plan seeks $805 million to help 3.8 million of the most vulnerable people, but it is only 30 per cent funded. In 2022, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has allocated $16 million from the Central Emergency Response Fund to tackle food security, protection, water and sanitation, health, nutrition, shelter and education needs in hard-to-reach areas.

On 16 September 2022, the United Nations marked the International Day of Peace with a Youth Observance. The theatrical phenomenon Blue Man Group participated in the festivities, to promote the day’s theme: “End racism. Build peace.” ---------- Watch the full event: https://media.un.org/en/asset/k12/k125gwjup6 ----- 2022 Theme: End racism. Build peace. Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire. But achieving true peace entails much more than laying down arms. It requires the building of societies where all members feel that they can flourish. It involves creating a world in which people are treated equally, regardless of their race. As Secretary-General António Guterres has said: “Racism continues to poison institutions, social structures, and everyday life in every society. It continues to be a driver of persistent inequality. And it continues to deny people their fundamental human rights. It destabilizes societies, undermines democracies, erodes the legitimacy of governments, and… the linkages between racism and gender inequality are unmistakable.” As conflicts continue to erupt across the globe, causing people to flee, we have seen race-based discrimination at borders. As COVID-19 keeps attacking our communities, we have seen how certain racial groups have been hit much harder than others. As economies suffer, we have seen hate speech and violence directed at racial minorities. We all have a role to play in fostering peace. And tackling racism is a crucial way to contribute. We can work to dismantle the structures that entrench racism in our midst. We can support movements for equality and human rights everywhere. We can speak out against hate speech – both offline and online. We can promote anti-racism through education and reparatory justice. The 2022 theme for the International Day of Peace is “End racism. Build peace.” We invite you to join the efforts of the United Nations as we work towards a world free of racism and racial discrimination. A world where compassion and empathy overcome suspicion and hatred. A world that we can truly be proud of. #bluemangroup #UnitedNations #peaceday

Global Video: Are labour unions making a comeback in North America?


Related Videos On: Are labour unions making a comeback in North America?


Throughout the pandemic, North Americans have been rethinking their relationship with work. In fact, a recently released survey found that about a quarter of Canadians have taken on a new job in the past few months. Many more who have stayed at their post have begun thinking about ways to improve working conditions. And then there's workers at places like Starbucks and Apple, some of whom have sought to form unions or join unions. In Canada, three Starbucks in B.C. have voted to join the United Steelworkers Union, as has a café in Calgary. Five Lethbridge Starbucks locations are awaiting the results of similar votes. Meanwhile, unions have reported an increase in the number of calls from workers interested in joining a union, according to Canadian Labour Congress President Bea Bruske. “Those workers who are often service sector workers in restaurants, retail locations, have had to deal with the public, have not necessarily had access to personal protective equipment during the pandemic, have not had access to paid sick time. And quite frankly, their wages are not keeping up to inflation,” She explains. Alyssa Julie explains what’s behind workers’ renewed push to unionize their workplaces and whether it’s likely to lead to a stronger labour movement.

Global Video: Ballroom culture: World’s 1st Global Black Pride LGBTQ+ celebrations

The world’s first in-person Global Black Pride (GBP) events were held in Toronto, exactly one month after Pride and overlapping with the city’s Caribbean Carnival. Founded in 2020, it is an event that brings together Black 2SLGBTQIA+ communities across all continents. One of these events was the Black Pride Kiki Ball, co-hosted by the City of Toronto with the Toronto Kiki Ballroom Alliance (TKBA). In Canada, ballroom culture has exploded in recent years. Founded in 2010 in Toronto by Legendary Twysted Miyake-Mugler and Legendary Vixen, TKBA is a space to nurture the needs of 2SLGBTQIA+ BIPOC youth facing barriers and trauma. Started in New York during the 1960s, ballroom spaces were created by the queer and trans Black and Latinx community due to discrimination and a need for a safer nightlife. A function that hosts multiple competitive categories, each event typically consists of a DJ, a commentator, a judges panel, ballroom walkers and spectators coming together to celebrate one another and compete. For the world’s first in-person GBP event, this global event celebrated the unique intersection of these diverse cultures, marking how far the movement has come over the course of 60 years. For those who may be hearing about it for the first time, what exactly is a ball and what does it mean for the community?

Disability is a reality for many Canadians. Yet, people with disabilities often struggle to access businesses, nightclubs and other spaces. This is true in the 2SLGBTQQIA+ community as well. “I feel very isolated in a lot of those spaces because they’re not accessible,” disability awareness consultant Andrew Gurza tells Global News about hot spots in Toronto’s LGBTQ+ neighbourhood, “The Village.” “And if I can access the space a lot of the community doesn’t know how to receive me. Has never seen a disabled person like me in the space.” Global News’ Alyssa Julie spoke to two disabled people in the queer community, who said physical barriers aren’t the only hurdle they encounter. Global News’ Alyssa Julie reports.

Global Video: Bisexual erasure: What it is, and how it impacts mental health


Related Videos On: Bisexual erasure: What it is, and how it impacts mental health


Almost 500,000 people in Canada identify as bisexual, according to official data from Statistics Canada. However, although a growing portion of the Canadian population identifies as bisexual, those who come out as such are still met with denial, or their identities are questioned. This phenomenon is referred to as bisexual erasure. One example of this is when a bisexual person is said to be “experimenting,” or transitioning to gay or lesbian, as described by 2SLGBTQQIA+ organizations, like GLAAD or Pflag. Global News’ Alyssa Julie explains what bisexual erasure is and how it can affect the mental health of those impacted.
