Construction Overage on a Grand Scale

 
In every project, you end up with a couple extra tiles or boards. You can eliminate a lot of waste if you use The Home Renovator on this site. However, sometimes halfway through a project your wife says, “I don’t like the custom granite 'we' picked out. Let’s try something different.” And sometimes that product cannot be returned. In commercial construction, overages sometimes happen, too—but on a much larger scale. Almost 20 years ago, Southland Corp. planned a twin office tower in Dallas. But only one tower made it up and 425,000 square feet of pink Brazilian granite for the second tower has been sitting on 6 acres ever since. That’s enough granite to façade a 45-story office building or the world’s largest countertop. Maybe the site owners could call the Cold Stone Ice Cream folks and make a deal.
