Work has progressed well this past week, as the concrete slab floor for the 6th floor is just over 50% complete. As well the first set of walls and columns rising from the 6th to the future 7th floor have been formed and poured.
There will be no work on site tomorrow, Saturday, January 18 due to the expected snow storm.
Next week, January 20 onwards, work will continue to complete the 6th floor concrete slab and continue forming and pouring walls and columns running from floor 6 to floor 7. Concrete work is expected to occur every day, weather permitting. We will have an update later next week on the potential for work on Saturday, January 25.
Installation of the western hoist
On February 3, 2020, the first hoist (external construction elevator) will be installed on the west side frontage of the building. This will be placed inside the construction hoardings on the south, side of the project, adjacent Front Street East.
The hoist’s components will be loaded into the site form a construction gate on Front Street East. The truck will is expected to occupy the area that’s being prepared with gravel surfacing, inside the site. This should minimize any vehicular or pedestrian traffic disruption on Front Street East.
We will more details on this next week.
Please check back for updates.
