Steel Erection, Roof Framing and Decking Progress August 9, 2011 By stewartperry 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.
