Civil work this week involved excavating a slope for a 20 foot high gabion-style basket wall. This area will eventually feature a retaining wall for the upper site where the parking lot will be located and the lower area for the recently relocated Duhart’s Creek.
Landmarks nearing completion this week include the parking lot sub-grade and the block work on the front of the building.
On the southwest area of the site, overburden trash is almost completely gone. Nearby, a large cut slope has been seeded and mulched so that landscape efforts can get a head-start.
Grading work for an area on the site that will be a mitigated wetlands area began on a soil nail wall that eventually will extend vertically down over 20 feet.
In addition to the civil work this week, the electrical crews began installation of the conduit runs for the power feeds for the building. These runs will feature over 2,000 linear feet of conduit runs around the building site after completion.
