Today's photo is from an interview of the Project Manager and Foremen for the Cambridge Center Capital Improvements project. Cannistraro worked on HVAC improvements including boilers and cooling towers for buildings 3, 4 and 5 at Cambridge Center. The most interesting thing about this project is how the Layout Foreman, Kevin (front right in the photo) produced hand-drawn sketches for every part of the buildings' mechanical infrastructure before Cannistraro began work. In some cases, these sketches went directly to the pre-fab shop for construction. Technology is important but sometimes doing it by hand is necessary and in those cases we see the human side of technology.
