Phase 2 of the Precast Structure Taking Shape

With the precast structure on the northern retail center/parking deck complete, crews move to the lower elevation of the southern retail center. Loading docks and ramps for the area appear with each new section erected.

On the northern end of the project, our last topping slab of the elevated deck has been completed and approved to start steel erection next week. Our next elevated pour will be in the loading dock area. Down below in the northern parking deck, our last “light duty” slab on grade concrete paving pour has been completed. Concrete test have confirmed strength that has allowed the beginning of our overhead rough-in of utilities.

Caisson work on the southern lower area of the project is now complete and concrete crews follow with the last few remaining pier caps. Both drill rigs have now move to the upper portion of the parking deck area. Overall, blue skies and no rain have been a blessing.

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.
