1 World Trade Center
approaches 1,776 feet

On August 12th Times Union reported that “The 1 World Trade Center building in New York City now has 78 stories of steel and 70 stories of concrete, bringing the tower closer to its height of 1,776 feet. The construction site has become a tourist stop and a source of pride for both workers and onlookers”.

As we approach the 10th anniversary of September 11, 2001, Yarmus Engineering, P.C. joins you in pausing to remember and cherish the memory of those we lost on that fateful date.  We take great pride in the resolve, commitment, and ingenuity displayed by all those associated with the rebuilding the World Trade Center site. 

Earthquake Spurs Travel Delays On East Coast 

On August 12th Bloomberg News reported on the East Coast earthquake that delayed thousands of travelers after the FAA grounded planes in several cities and ordered evacuations for air traffic control towers at Kennedy, Newark, and Reagan National airports. Tim Hardison of the National Air Traffic Controllers Association said Andrews Air Force Base was closed to air traffic. Two hours after the earthquake, the FAA “was still reporting delays at Newark Liberty International Airport and Reagan National Airport near Washington.” Meanwhile, Amtrak service between Baltimore and Washington, D.C. was operating at reduced speeds. DC’s Union Station was evacuated due to falling plaster. Amtrak crews were inspecting stations and railroad infrastructure before returning to normal operation.

Our firm President, Andrew R. Yarmus, P.E., was passing through the Virginia area epicenter while vacationing with his family when the earthquake struck, and had his return trip canceled by the effects of Hurricane Irene during the following week.  Yarmus Engineering, P.C. has been working diligently to assist our friends, neighbors, and clientele who were affected by these natural disasters, and asks that you please contact our office if we can be of assistance to you or your clients.
