Trench Backfilling and Fuel Pump Room

Trench Backfilling and Fuel Pump Room

Installation of the underground fuel lines from the tanks to the Fuel Pump Room is now complete and backfilling of trenches is underway. Crews are also continuing to install reinforcing and place concrete in the Fuel Pump room and the concrete floor will be installed early next week.

Demolition of the two story portion of the South Building continues. 

All of these activities are expected to create typical levels of construction noise and truck traffic.

Shoring Tomorrow

Shoring Tomorrow

Sheet shoring panels did not occur on Monday and Tuesday as stated in the last blog post due to unforeseen construction issues, so the work has been rescheduled for tomorrow. The shoring will be done starting at 7 a.m. tomorrow morning and is expected to be finished by the end of the day. As with the previous removals of these shoring panels, there will be loud banging heard as they pull the panels from the ground and possible vibration.
