Construction Update 03/24/2018
Block walls continue to grow higher in the air allowing structural steel to begin installation next week.
Masonry walls for the office areas are close to reaching 1st floor bearing height, which will allow structural steel to begin next week.
Electrical boxes and conduits for outlets, switches, and wall devices continue to be installed in sequence with the masonry walls.
Glass and frames were installed in the mock-up this week, and prep work was completed making way for metal panels to be installed next.
Walking the plank…an elevated maze of scaffolding is continuously adjusted to provide a working surface for the masons as the block walls grow in height.
Reinforcing bars and grout fill is installed in the block walls at specified vertical and horizontal locations to provide a unified structural bond.
Upcoming Week Look Ahead:
- Masonry block walls
- In-wall plumbing and electrical rough-ins
- Mockup installation
- Structural steel erection
