    Amazing that they are doing the second row of windows already. Can anybody confirm if the first row of windows are fully wrapped around the building yet?

    The original link works, though no longer on YouTube. Miss being able to go back 12 hours to compare changes.

    They seem to have snuck that in overnight. I know the camera is far away but do the lower rooms where the glass is going already have framing for the walls? If so that is some fast work.

    two floors above the newest installed windows looks to have Metal framing in and every floor looks to have the materials set in place ready to go...above those floors it looks to still have the shoring jacks in place

    I wonder at what point they go to the 24/7 schedule to make that December opening date? They are making amazing progress but they have a LOT to do still and that is just on the outside. All the work to be done on the rooms on the inside plus the actual casino? I suspect by May they are doing weeks of 24 hour work. Maybe only 8 hours a day on the weekends.

    Not really. They don't have a full crew working 24/7. Only a few workers working the graveyard shift, supposedly setting things up for the morning/day crew. This was when I at MSS 2 weeks ago. The only time they had a full crew was one night when they were pouring the parking garage floor. It was a continuous stream of cement trucks coming and going to pour the whole garage floor that night. The rest of the week the garage area was dark but I saw 1 or 2 people working on the Circa building.

    Thanks for the update, makiki. Good to know that the graveyard shift might not be as noisy. I'm headed over to the Cal next month and sometimes even though I request West Tower I get put in the East Tower.

    Circa construction must be on schedule. Good for them. When I was still working construction I knew a couple of electricians that went to Vegas to work when City Center was being built. The work was 24/7, I guess the work there was a whole lot larger in scale while the Circa footprint is relatively small compared to City Center.
