But if the tower manufacturer's spec. already calls for 4,000 psi
concrete (for example), shouldn't one wait until it has come pretty
close to 4,000 psi before imposing the full load on it?|

Isn't it one of LXC's tips to order 4,000 psi, which cures to 3,000 psi rather quickly? I forget the exact times, but it seemed that ordering stronger concrete than you need shaved considerably the wait for the design specification strength. Then the extra curing was gravy.
