Building project of the day

Ever build a house and have to cut out some amenities to save a few bucks? Well, the folks in London are being told to do the same with their Olympic Stadium.

When London won the bid for the 2012 Olympics three years ago, Team McAlpine said the stadium would cost about $574-million, but its recent plans called for a budget of $1.43-billion. Organizers have freaked out and are demanding the costs be cut almost in half.

McGuire will continue to serve as the "Inside the Glass'' analyst.
