Construction Update 11-21-18
On the Grand River building, exterior “skin” continues to be installed, adding elements of color to the facade. Framers and Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing trades continue to make their way up as well. The final two floors should be installed within the next month or so.
On the Albert side, this week another pour took place on the western side of level 5, as it continues to catch up with the eastern side. Brick work continues on the exterior facade, as all of the trades continue to work in the interior.
Work will break for Thanksgiving, with minimal activity taking place on Friday as well.

Level 5 floor first pour was completed yesterday (11/20), the second pour of three will be this coming Tuesday (11/27). The level 4 walls are 80% complete with the trusses for the ceiling and the decking for level 5 falling close behind. Interior walls in the podium levels continue (both stud and masonry walls). Windows have started to be set on the 3rd floor. Concrete placement will continue on a regular basis, utilizing closed roads or the alley directly adjacent to the project to minimize impacts to traffic/pedestrians. Deliveries will continue to increase, as Electrical, Mechanical, and Fire Suppression trades continue roughing in the garage, first floor, and mezzanine, and working their way up the building.
The contractor continues to monitor the site for safety and implement additional traffic control techniques as necessary based on delivery volumes. The southern alley is closed and parking has been relocated to East Café across the street.
