Standing Structural Steel at the Northern Retail Center

Knoxville Collage 1

We worked through Labor Day, when eight truckloads of structural steel were on their way from Alabama for arrival at 7:00 am Tuesday. This marked a new phase of construction for our northern retail center.

With a multi-story building, our crew required a 100-ton capacity crane to hoist equipment to the second level to begin installation of the structural steel. Other developments around the site include:

  • Steel is inventoried and “shook out” to its location for future erection.
  • MEP crews were busy with overhead rough-in of utilities.
  • Fire sprinkler contractors were added to our onsite team.
  • Precast Crews continued hoisting the 50,000 pound and over loads of concrete into place at the southern end of the project.
  • Caisson crews near complete of their work with less than 10 units remaining.
  • Concrete Crews poured footings for the upper and last retaining wall.
  • Earthwork crews progressed with underground utilities and rough grading of the site.
