All major basement slab on grade is complete. Our second luffing crane is up and operational, just in time for the precast erection which started this week. The site will undergo significant changes over the next four months as the structure rises from below grade 2 levels, to six levels above. Six levels of steel (office) construction will occur on top of the precast (garage) and is scheduled to start in September.
HP and Clutch visited Rocky Mountain Prestress today to review samples for architectural finish, color, and texture on the custom form liner at exposed foundation walls. The sample was approved as presented. Production to start in a few days.
Grade beams construction continues including formwork, reinforcing, concrete pour, formwork stripped, backfill and drainage mat applied to the outside face. Some of or connector walls have also been cast, propped up with temporary bracing, and covered with waterproofing.
Majority of perimeter drains are installed, and the Sand/Oil interceptor is installed
Core 1 (East Stair) cast-in-place starter walls have been poured and the formwork has been removed. The mat slab has been backfilled up to the top of mat slab.
Core 2 & 3 mat slab framing has been removed and vertical waterproofing is installed and lapped over the top of the mat slab. Drainage board has been installed on the vertical face of the mat slab.
Mat slab for Core 4 is installed, formwork is still in place on its vertical sides. Framing for the cast in place starter walls around the Elevator Shaft is in progress
Over half of the drilled piers are complete. Perimeter drains are also being installed. Void forms and grade beams are being constructed. Some standing water has accumulated, but no more than expected.
Cameron, Conner, and the fine folks at Viracon Glass took us out for a Ski Day at Copper. Conditions were spring like, a bluebird day with temps in the mid 40’s. http://www.viracon.com/
Excavation of 50Fifty is just about complete, and we’ve started drilling piers for the foundation. Rebar cages are being fabricated at the south end of the site, and temporary power is in place at the bottom of the excavation pit.
The curtain wall mock-up was completed at Harmon’s shop this week. No changes required, all the materials and details looking exactly as we intended.
The leasing website for our 50Fifty project is now live. Check out images and VR content, along with a short video that explains the building design process.
A milestone week for the construction of our 50Fifty Tower. Luffing crane number one has been assembled, and excavation continues deeper.
