Expanding Job Opportunities for Ironworkers and their Contractors

Just wanted to say that Mark, Michael and Stuart from FMI and Trevor from PWC did an excellent job engaging the classroom in discussion each day, and had a great program format for teaching. The information they brought forward was extremely useful now as I'm sure it will be throughout my career. This was only my 2nd IMPACT course that I have attended, I would like to commend IMPACT on organizing these events for Ironworkers and contractors alike, IMPACT always put on an amazing program, and does a very good job at making these events comfortable and welcoming to attend. I plan to attend more IMPACT events as the information is always very useful and IMPACT does a great job of finding the right instructors for the occasion. I would like to thank everyone at IMPACT for the work they do to set these events up and providing the opportunity to attend these courses.

Watch One Bennett Park rise 70 stories in new timelapse construction video


Construction on Streeterville’s One Bennett Park skyscraper took nearly three years to complete. But you can now watch the entire process unfold in less than a minute.

A slick timelapse video recently published by EarthCam follows the luxurious combination rental and condo building at 451 E. Grand Avenue rise from its humble start as a dirt lot to its 836-foot-high crown.

Although it all happens in a few blinks of an eye, the construction method is on full display. Crews from Lendlease can be seen pouring the tower’s concrete skeleton and hoisting large precast exterior panels and windows into place.

Developed by Related Midwest, One Bennett Park features an Art Deco-inspired design by New York’s Robert A. M. Stern Architects. The building is the city’s first and only Stern tower and is Chicago’s tallest strictly residential skyscraper—meaning it lacks the hotel, office, or retail components of its taller cousins.

One Bennett welcomed its first renters last fall and condominium owners this spring. Earlier this month, Related Midwest opened the building’s namesake 1.7-acre park, designed by famed landscape architecture firm Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates.
