The masonry contractor is making excellent progress on the load-bearing walls of the 3rd floor east. They have almost completed the walls and have also started working on the interior walls. According to the schedule, the building of the 3rd floor east walls will be finished by the end of next week, allowing for the pouring of the topping and the placement of precast materials by the first of September.
It is important to note that once the masonry contractor finishes their work on the east side, they will be shifting their focus to the west side. Therefore, it is crucial that all the required steel, including steel lintels, be delivered to the site before the masonry contractor begins their work on the west side. We want to ensure that we have all the necessary materials and avoid any need for costly concrete beam bonds as substitutes for steel lintels. We are determined to avoid that situation.
Concerns have also been raised about the parking area. It has been brought to our attention that the electrician needs a survey to be conducted in order to run underground electrical cables for the parking lot lighting. This survey needs to be completed promptly to facilitate the electrician’s work. Additionally, there is plenty of work to be done, such as constructing concrete curbs, laying concrete sidewalks, and preparing the base asphalt, all of which should be accomplished before winter arrives.
On a positive note, the mechanical and electrical trades are doing a commendable job of closely following the progress of the masonry contractor and keeping up with their respective tasks. This coordination is crucial for the smooth continuation of the project. As previously mentioned, having the steel delivered to the west side next week, before the masonry contractor begins working there, is of utmost importance. By ensuring the timely delivery of materials, we can maintain the project’s momentum and stay on track.
With a sense of urgency and determination, let’s make the most of our time and strive to accomplish a substantial amount of work. There are many tasks ahead of us, but by working together, we can overcome any challenges and ultimately reach our goals.
