Site & Building Progress Continues
There is an inspection done weekly onsite for erosion control. Due to the heavy rain events we had there were a lot of the erosion control devices that needed to be replaced, repaired, or improved upon. Thanks to the rainout days and 2 ½” of rain, this was the focus of our site work last week.
To date, we have undercut over 15,000 cubic yards of wetlands, hauled over 60,000 cubic yards of overfill and trash, laid 340 linear feet triple run of 72” corrugated metal pipe, installed over 2,000 linear feet of 60” underground detention system pipe and installed the twin arch spans measuring 75’ long by 49’ wide by 17’ high.
During the last few weeks, we’ve seen the building work begin as the site work was winding down. The foundation is poured and the forms for the walls started on the southern wall. Brick work was began as the wall concrete pours were completed
Our crews began to unload the first loads of steel for the roof.
Other necessary structures for the roof steel will be started soon and topping out should be completed as well.
Masonry work was started throughout the building as the walls were finished out.
Concrete pours are still a vital part of Gastonia. The retaining wall in the loading dock area was poured last week. Subgrade work has started after the forms were stripped. The driveline concrete will be poured at the site by our crews soon. Progress continues with the walls up and the roof steel delivered.
