MSUFCU Construction Update 7-5-2022
Steel deck installation has been completed and the iron workers are finishing the final detailing and miscellaneous structural items. The mechanical and plumbing contractor is currently onsite working on layout, installing underground for the slab-on-grade, and overhead layout. The HVAC contractor is also onsite installing overhead heat pump units. We are working on earth work and grading for the first floor to accommodate the first slab-on-grade pour and the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) underground. The electrical contractor is on the roof installing the in-slab electrical conduit and raceway for the penthouse slab. We will be pouring the penthouse slab on the roof and the remaining concrete on floors 6, 5, 4, and 3 this week. A concrete pump will be onsite at roughly 6 a.m. those days to start pouring concrete at 7 a.m. Hydraulic scaffolding has been erected on both the east and southeast sides of the building to accommodate the exterior enclosure trades. The framing contractor is currently building out the parapet at the top of the building and the framing of the 7th floor on the east side.
Albert Ave. remains closed to through traffic. This closure will remain in effect through the summer and is expected to be removed prior to student move-in for Michigan State University. The lane closures on Abbot Rd. 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.
