The foundation of the building is coming along despite early season October snow, but with moderate November temps progress has been constant, the building continues to grow on schedule. With the remaining retaining walls being poured then soon will be able to poor the fill ground level or lower parking level slab.
After a cold and snowy October, the crew never stopped work and is back at it again during some gorgeous fall weather here. You can see the foundations for the stars and elevator shafts.
This photo was taken by lead broker Ned Walley from a great vantage point from Lake Dillon. Ned was out on Lake Dillon this past weekend and was able to take some great shots of our crance but more importantly, this really shows where our building will be in relation to the Dillon, CO. Without a doubt, all four floors would be visible from this vantage point and show what views the building will provide.
The crew continues their amazing pace.
The crew is working hard to get our first level pours. Here you can see the pads for the elevators and stairs taking shape
So begins the heavy lifting!
A tower crane is used in the construction of tall buildings and essential for building our Type 2 structure. This type crane can reach up to 265 feet, out to 230 feet, and lift a total of approximately 20 tons. Tower cranes are fixed to the ground during the construction period. A tower crane is always mounted over a strong concrete pad so that anchor bolts can be embedded into the pad, which holds the tower crane when it is lifting heavy loads.
The construction here is moving quite fast with the pouring of the concrete pads for the elevators and stairs.
We plan to pour the first floor next week!
We have overlayed the building outline on an image of updated construction to better explain our building layout.
The crew is busy today, they are 75% complete with shoring including the shotcrete retaining walls. Also currently installing underground caissons for the concrete foundation, finishing perimeter utility work such as electric, water, and storm drains.
The crew is using a very large drill to add some re-bar caissons to serve as support for our building.
