Construction Update – Week of January 5, 2018

The roof trusses are complete now for the gymnasium and the crane will be demobilizing soon. The roof deck is on at the gym as well while work continues beneath to form up the walking track for concrete later in the schedule. Concrete block is also being placed for the first above-grade level of the gym, providing the substrate for the exterior finishes to be applied, also later in the schedule. The brick masons are getting a do-over on the west elevation of the theater as the mortar joints did not meet standards for alignment or dimension. Rooftop HVAC units are being fitted-up and connected through to the system in the theater as well as in the mixed-use building. The storefront windows and doors are also being installed ahead of the brick. Work continues on interior framing and mechanical installations in the mixed-use building with the gymnasium to follow. This stage of construction constitutes the busiest time in terms of subcontractors working the site and you may notice more vehicles and activity in the area. Please use extreme caution while driving West Broad.
