Question: Why are some of the steel beams painted and the rest aren't?

Most of the primer painted steel will be exposed and finished with a coating of intumescent paint, an aesthetically pleasing method of fireproofing the steel. The unprimed steel will be coated with the more common sprayed fireproofing seen in many areas of Mohawk or protected by fire resistant gypsum board.

Question: What are these cement containers going to be used for? 

Cisterns are getting built for The Joyce Centre for Partnership & Innovation so they are ready to capture rainwater collected from the roof areas of the building.  Rainwater harvesting is the sustainable feature that refers to collecting rainwater run off from roofs, parking areas and other surfaces that is used to augment the need for fresh water.  Water collected woudl be for non-potable use such as toilets, and irrigation.  In this image, the construction team is inspecting and setting up the inside of the cistern.  The site will have 2 cisterns collecting rainwater.
