Re: Work from home and road congestion

For those living in apartments or still working in an building with elevators, how are you handling that aspect? Is the elevator disinfected regularly? How do you handle crowded stairwells? I moved my oldest daughter home from college yesterday. Two trips required use of the elevator. (heavy items) ...

Re: Ford Site Redevelopment

We have begun work. Reclamation of asphalt and concrete surfaces will be stockpiled at the south end of the former paint building footprint. Once crushing starts, it will be stockpiled on-site, at the south end of the paint parking lot. The deer are annoyed. The coyotes are skittish. The ducks are i...

Re: Work from home and road congestion

Interesting about the U.K. I doubt the same holds true here, I am of the opinion most people don’t adjust/program their thermostat to conserve while at work.

Ground retention anchors have been removed from the sub-levels. The post-tension decks have all reached their 90 day cures, and the connecting pour strips all passed and are cured.
Our remaining work is to remove and replace the sidewalk when the project nears completion.

Re: Ford Site Redevelopment

I do have couple of small items to share. Ryan is placing their job site office trailer on the east side, directly south of Lunds. Excellent visibility of the site there. Access will be next to the employee parking lot behind their store. They open at 6:00, city has a noise ordinance thru 7:00. No e...

Re: Ford Site Redevelopment

This is a very concerning aspect of the Ford Site that I had no idea existed until recently- a huge potentially toxic waste dump on the river floodplain: https://fmr.org/river-corridor-and-land-use-updates/area-c-overlooked-ford-site It's separate from the area being redeveloped, so it shouldn't ha...

Re: 1400 Park Avenue

Stormwater retention tanks have been installed in the NE corner. The rest of the foundation in that corner (which only goes down one story, not two) can now be installed.
Demolition of the church on the west side rumors are swirling once again.

According to someone who works for the company moving it, (but not on this project specifically) the building is staying onsite?

It looks like pre-cast concrete decking, but it’s too small.

Re: Saint Paul - General Topics

Highland 9 hole proposal to reuse the land for soccer fields, skate park, and pickle ball. Thank goodness they’re going over there. The 18 hole side is a nightmare. The water towers on the west side leak (a lot) so bad that they didn’t have pipe in a water supply, they just pump out of the ponds on...

Re: Harlem Irving and CA Ventures - 250 Hennepin Ave - 21 stories - 256'

It must be, it’s too narrow for a footing trench. Just guessing, but the worker looking at the prints on the left isn’t our employee, probably a plumber; because the trench is being dug out to a specific elevation. (white grade rod in end of trench next to orange excavator) Probably the pipe run for...

Re: Harlem Irving and CA Ventures - 250 Hennepin Ave - 21 stories - 256'

The cut outs into the bedrock are areas that will be column support pads. Squares of concrete, anywhere from 3x3x1’, up to 10x10x3’. The round cage is probably protecting a spot that was drilled even deeper than the pads around it. Most likely, it is where the drain sumps for the elevator pit are be...

Re: TMBR - 100 3rd Ave N

Is it a Loeffler managed project? I do believe I spoke with the owner last summer. If I’m correct in that assumption, the foundation is a copy of the Archive. Drill and set H-pile, left in and used for the building foundation.
