Fuel Pump Room and Tower Crane Pad

Fuel Pump Room and Tower Crane Pad

Foundations for the Fuel Pump Room are underway along the south side of the existing South Addition. The Fuel Pump Room is scheduled to be complete by the end of February.

Brick removals on the existing hospital and South Building have resumed and are anticipated to continue for another week. Demolition of the former discharge ramp will also continue for another week or two. 

Excavation and installation of shoring for the tower crane pad (concrete base) will start on Monday, January 18. This is expected to create noise, but not as much as previous shoring as a different type of shoring system is being used. The crane is scheduled for installation in late summer.
