Our masonry contractor is making progress and nearing completion of load bearing walls on the 2nd floor east. However, we are still facing issues related to steel as we are waiting for galvanized lintels to be installed over windows. To mitigate this issue, we have requested our structural engineer to provide a detail of concrete bond beams that could be used in lieu of steel. If steel lintels are not onsite, our masonry contractor will form and build concrete bond beams as a replacement. The reason behind this move is to ensure the construction schedule does not face any delays.

This process will continue on the 3rd and 4th floors. In other news, pouring the slab on the grade – west – is scheduled for next week. We have also been informed that our main electrical transformer is expected to arrive in September. We plan to send out tenders for the roofer and other trades in July.

Once the masonry contractor is complete and topping poured, would allow the placement of pre-cast – 3rd floor. We are still working hard to achieve watertight status prior to the winter season.
