Footing Crews Laying Foundations…vertical construction starts soon.

This week our footing crews started the foundations for the vertical construction once the pad was completed and accepted.

Our civil work continue to progress in and around the weather cycles. While our foundation crews poured out the east footing early this week for the bridge, the remainder of the crew was finishing up H-piles on the center footing. Our plans are to pour the center footing the first of the week. The arch structure is scheduled for delivery next week with erection to follow.

The concrete crews also poured the headwall for the outlet end of the triple 72” pipes.

Building Pad Turnover Milestone Reached

We reached a milestone last week when we turned over the building pad to our building superintendent which means that we are now going vertical with our buildings.

Last week our site crews completed one head wall of the triple 72”’s  storm pipe, that you see below, and have now moved to the next one.

Our foundation crews for the bridge were able to pour one of the bridge footings the first of the week, worked through the week driving H piles and formed the east footing for a Friday evening concrete pour.

The site has changed significantly over the past few weeks, despite the challenging weather. Thanks to all that have helped to make our promises kept thus far.

The Building Pad Turns Over & Pile Driving Begins

With the turnover of the building pad this week, our crews have narrowed down the requirements for turn-over. Stone access road was installed around the building pad and in staging area. Our building superintendent is now on the job to start vertical construction.

We have now shifted the focus from the pad completion to the remainder of the site. Sixteen trucks cycled at a rate of 1.5 rounds an hour as we concentrate efforts to removing about 30,000 CY of overburden that overlays the fill needed to complete the balance of the grading operation.

Our work continues on the spine road through the site and this week we started driving steel H piles and as soon as they are complete we will form and pour reinforced concrete caps to support the double arch culvert bridge crossing Duharts Creek.
