The first and second of many concrete pours occurred this week at the Michael Jordan Collision Center project in Durham, NC. This turn-key project with Gontram Architecture and Ten Penny Construction has been plugging away at demolition for many weeks, cutting concrete, excavating rock inside the building, removing old fireproofing, etc. This week marked the point where new positive construction commenced.
With underslab plumbing nearly complete, the trench drains were set in place and inspected.
The ventilation pits for the paint booths were rock-free after Monday, so footings and wall work could be completed.
New overhead door openings were cut and framed, just waiting on the doors to be installed on Monday.
The rear service drive area was rough graded and began to take shape, now that the weather has allowed us to do so.
Next week, more work continues with concrete pour back. We also begin work on the front of the building with cutting concrete, and foundation work.
