The article reports on the constructions of the construction company Hearst Corp. The builders of a 46-story office building--a restoration, an adaptive reuse and a modern steel tower rolled into one--are as obsessed with quality and detail as was William Randolph Hearst, when he built his extravagant California estate in the early 1900s. The Hearst Building leaves no room for error and has "no forgiveness," says Ted Totten, president of Cives Steel Co.'s Northern Division. The fabricator, based in Gouverneur, New York, furnished and erected the job's 12,000 tons of structural steel, under a $38-million contract.
