The concrete crew returned mid-week to pour the back entryway to the elevator footings, 2 steps to the stairs outside youth room in basement hallway and a small, reinforced wall in basement hallway in mechanical room. They are preparing to pour the Sanctuary floor and Atrium floors next week along with basement exit stairway on the east side of the building and exit door pad in Sanctuary northeast corner. A lot of concrete to be poured this coming week. Wood packages have been arriving for the project also. Please keep the construction crews’ safety and the project in our prayers.
The Concrete contractor completed forming the foundation walls on Tuesday, final adjustments then poured the walls in the afternoon on Wednesday completing the perimeter foundation wall.
Remainder of the week saw the concrete contractor form and pour the remaining footings for the foundation wall. They are currently placing rebar and forms for the foundation walls. They are even working on the rain today so please pray for them to stay safe. They are working hard to catch the schedule back up since we lost some time earlier in the season.
After over 2” of rain left standing water in the basement area, the contractor was able to dry out the basement. They were able to excavate for floor column footings and pour the concrete for those today. They also excavated the remainder of the footings and placing rebar. Could be poured as early as Thursday. Contractor also excavated and placed aggregate base for the lower parlor concrete floor that will be poured soon.
Elevator pit in place. Lower parlors, hallway, former men's and women's restrooms excavated.
Upcoming work. Existing foundation reinforcement in old basement hallway. Continuing excavation for remainder of footings and foundation walls.
Weather slowed progress this week but masons have been busy putting up the second firebreak wall next to the existing building. Foundation drain and backfill around the foundation walls has begun. Biggest element was the elevator foundation pit and wall so masons can begin the elevator shaft in the next couple weeks. Slowly but surely.
