Construction Update 03-18-22
Precast installation is currently on hold while the spring thaw road weight restrictions are in effect. Structural steel erection is ongoing – steel beams have been erected up to the fifth floor, and now working on the sixth and seventh floors of structural steel. The steel will be installed up to the roof on the east side before moving to the west. Once the steel beam erection is complete, we will install the decking material on each floor. Steel erection will continue through April 2022 with expected completion in early May. The mason is on-site installing granite on the north side of the building. Consumers Energy has completed their work installing the permanent gas service. The fire suppression contractor will be on-site installing a fire suppression system standpipe in the east stair shaft the week of March 21. Underground mechanical and electrical will recommence at the end of March, with the first slab-on-grade concrete pour taking place in early April.
The lane closure on Abbot Ave. has been reinstated and will remain in effect for the foreseeable future. The westbound lane closure on Albert Ave. has been installed and will remain in effect for the foreseeable future. The south access to the alley off Albert Ave. will be closed to vehicles and pedestrians for the duration of overhead work to help ensure safety. The alley is accessible from the north.
