Crews will also be putting together the interior and exterior framing for the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th floors. Swing stage scaffolding is installed on the north side, with the east elevation operational. Roof demo and roof curb prep continues for the new boiler room directly above the 2nd floor south west corner of the observation unit.
The 4th floor concrete deck pour is tentatively scheduled for Thursday April 21st starting at 7 a.m. Concrete finishing has the potential to run late into the night but will not go past the City noise ordinance of 10 p.m.
Please keep in mind the concrete pour tentatively scheduled for next week will have the concrete pump on the south side of the new tower (engine running the during the entire pour), 2 concrete trucks rotating in and out at the concrete pump (engines running), and 1 concrete truck washing out (engine running). Crews will be in constant communication with the batch plant adjusting truck spacing depending on how the pour is progressing.
A flag person will be stationed at the South Avenue entrance to help back in the concrete trucks and help with traffic flow.
