The 250 ton capacity crane has been set to rest and the line of trucks hauling 60,000 pound concrete beams and double tees has ended. The precast erection of the southern retail center floor and parking deck is complete.

Concrete crews now begin their task of preparing the area for the leveling slab for the southern retail center. Loading dock ramp precast is also complete and we are preparing for the pour of the topping slabs and walls.

On the north end of the project, steel erection is complete for the main building with roofing operation soon to start. Entrance atrium steel erection is ongoing.

Precast for Southern Retail Center Moves Forward

With the completion of the precast on the Northern Retail Center, crews concentrate their efforts to the southern end of the project. Concrete crews are working in several areas and levels of the project. The last leveling slab pour was completed on the upper level of the Northern Retail Center. Our first loading dock pours scheduled for next week.

Down below at the Northern Parking Deck level, all light duty slab on grade work is complete except for the final pour schedule for early next week. Caisson installation at the southern end of the project has only two lower level piers left to pour. We have relocated one of the two drill rigs to the upper level of that work area. In total, only 21 of the 315 remain.

Utility work progressed with the installation of additional sewer main and lower level storm water piping. Electrical crews were also busy with underground primary and secondary power conduit installation.
