Construction Schedule (Weather permitting)
Deep Foundations/Underpinning/Footings Start spring 2012, complete early fall 2012
This phase will be marked by mass excavation, underpinning the building and pouring footings. As soon as the basement excavation has progressed to allow deep foundation work to commence, drill rigs will be mobilized to install auger cast foundation piles. Approximately 550 holes 16- 24 inches in diameter will be drilled on average 60’ deep and filled with concrete to support the new building addition. Footings will be formed on top of these piles to provide a surface to anchor structural steel forming the "skeleton" of the new additions.
Structural Steel Start early fall 2012, complete late 2012
Approximately 1200 tons of structural steel will be used to create a framework for the new addition.
Concrete Slabs Start fall 2012, complete late 2012
Concrete slabs will be poured to provide a foundation for the building’s floor.
Utility Service Installation Start late 2012, complete fall 2013
As soon as slabs are placed, mechanical/electrical/plumbing work will commence along with building interiors, and continue until phase I is completed in fall 2013.
Exterior Facades Start late 2012, complete summer 2013
We will install the exterior walls and features, which include glass, brick, terra cotta, and metal panels.
Building Interiors Start early2013, complete fall 2013
This will include the installation of drywall, finish ceilings, paint and flooring, along with the interior construction.
