Developments Underground, Inside and on the Roof

The plumbing fittings are organized and ready to install.

Grease trap tanks are in place, and the connection to the building is in progress.

Concrete footing work for the parking lot retaining walls is coming along.

Metal decking and parapet brick installation is nearing completion on the gable roof.

Utilities, HVAC and Roofing Continue

Our team made great progress on the sanitary sewer. We’re close to connecting the piping to the building.

HVAC work is moving along. Rooftop curb installation is complete, and we are ready to commence work on the building duct work.

We are moving ahead with the fire sprinkler installation.

We have completed brick gables with step flashing and are now ready for truss decking. The exterior sheathing is nearing completion, readying the building for door and window installation.

Roof material is stocked and ready for installation.

Walls Take Shape

Framing is moving along, and we are starting to fill in with orient strand board (OSB) sheathing. This will provide structure for the walls.

Sewer and water service installation is underway. Electrical conduits are also in place.

Fire sprinkler piping arrived this week, as did additional roofing materials. Work is commencing for both.

 

With Structural Steel Complete, Walls and Veneers Are in Formation

Last week, we set the roofing trusses on the US Steel Realty building.

All trusses are now in place, making the roof ready for decking.

Our team has installed the main water tap, meter vault and electrical service conduits.

In the basement, we have stocked sheet rock. Wall framing will start as soon as all utilities are roughed-in.

 

Steel Erection, Roof Framing and Decking Progress

Metal stud framing is progressing on all floors, including the basement.

Our team is installing utility conduits in the foundation walls. These will carry multiple lines, consolidating a maintenance entry point and increasing public safety.

We are starting the second phase of site work with backfill around the foundation walls. Underground utility installation will begin this week.

 

Pushing Ahead With Steel, Concrete and Waterproofing

Our team poured the second floor slab as we continue with the erection of metal pan stairs. Next, we will install bar joist and decking for roof.

We are also beginning the metal stud framing for the exterior walls, second floor.

We are continuing to waterproof the basement walls and backfill with stone. This will be completed next week. All on schedule.

Structural Reinforcements Move Ahead

This week, our team installed decking on the second floor of the building. This composite metal has a ribbed profile designed to interlock for permanent form and positive reinforcement.

We are in the process of waterproofing the foundation.

Our team is using stone to backfill the area around the foundation. This provides support for the concrete, and will prevent future cracking or structural damage.

Structural Steel, From the Top Down

At the corner of Village Green and Preserve Parkway, the structure of the new USS Real Estate Building is starting to take shape.

Vertical steel columns and horizontal I-beam framing are completed to the roof.  This skeleton frame was constructed in a rectangular grid to support the floors, roof and walls of the building.Composite steel floor decking, formatted to ASTM standards, is being installed.
