Good Morning Neighbors,
We’ve been busy since our last updated and wanted to share the latest progress pictures from our project. First, a quick safety moment, because Safety is always our number one priority.
Safety Moment: Safety is often viewed in the context of immediate physical danger, however, health and long-term health impacts should also be considered in a safety plan. During construction of a large project, erosion control plays a large part in protecting the health of the environment and our neighbors around us. At third and Ash, we follow an engineered plan to limit sediments from washing off our site. Filters are also placed in all the near-by catch basins to provide additional protection against sediments washing into the city storm water systems.
Last November we completed our structural concrete and hit the ground running with the wood framed apartments starting on level 2. We are currently laying floor joists and floor sheathing on level 5 and will be standing walls on level 5 later this week:
As the building continues to grow, exciting views of the neighborhood are starting to unfold:
Upcoming Planned Activities:
- Floor joists and sheathing will be completed on level 5 early this week.
- Our masons will continue to install the south CMU fire separation wall up to level 6. CMU is only built one story at a time above the wood framing and is anchored to the wood structure at each level to provide stability to the soon-to-be 7-story tall wall.
- Wood framed walls will be erected on above level 5 later this week.
- Concrete corbels are being installed around the perimeter of level 1 to support the decorative brick pilasters. Brick-work on the exterior of the building is intricately detailed to compliment other historic architecture around the area.
- Hot Rubber Waterproofing will be installed in the courtyard on level 2 this week. The courtyard will contain a 4-ft deep storm water planter to collect and filter storm water as part of the sustainability goals of the project.
