Last week, the real estate division of US Steel moved into its new offices at the Preserve. With many hands involved, we believe the mark was met and will serve our customer well for many years to come.
For temperature control and comfort, it’s important that we get the HVAC just right. Here roof top units are being set by crane. HVAC duct work installation on the second floor is near completion, as is refrigeration piping.
- Electrical panel installation is in progress on 2nd floor
- Doors with temporary door panels have been installed at the 1st floor
- Radius Patio concrete slab completed
- Waiting area ceiling is being framed on the 2nd floor
Before the concrete for the foundation walls and main building body can be poured, forms and rebar structures must be built. The rebar is to ensure structural support and increase strength of the concrete.
The Preserve Building is still getting pours for the foundation and main building body. This is now finished and we can move onto to other parts of the project cycle.
The concrete pours for the supports of the main building body is shown here as the overview of the building site
Now that the grading in the foundation area has been completed, the groundwork preparation for the foundation pours started last week.
Now that the reinforced concrete pours have begun, we can move onto the rest of the building slab this week.
Excavation of the basement is nearing completion and should be wrapped up by this next week.
The parking lot structural fill is nearing completion after the recent storms in the area. This area will be completed in just a few days.
The survey engineers established bench marks for the floor area of the basement for excavation of the first floor. This will assist us in bringing everything up to grade.
The soil nail wall that was started last week is now completed. This will ensure that we are able to move forward with the grading and excavation work necessary for completion of the overall project.
Clearing of the project jobsite began by first clearing and grading the lot so that the subgrade for the building pad could be prepared.
Grading and backfill work began at the job site for the parking lot area and excavation for the building pad as well.
The first work of the project involved the removal of rock and excavation for the future basement. The excavation lowered the original grade of the building site down 14 feet.
In what will be the future basement area, the crews installed a geo fabric with Soil Nails. These “nails” are spiral pins that are driven into a bank of earth at various depths to essentially lock the geo fabric and geogrid-style material shown above into the retaining wall. As the Soil Nails are driven into the components and the wall, the pressure locks everything into place.
The Preserve Office Building will meet the design elements of the local area once completed
