The 280 Cadman team has just celebrated the “bottoming out” of the site, which means we’ve poured the concrete slab-on-grade for the deepest area of the building.  This week, the construction team will be pouring footings for the foundation and preparing for the next concrete pour.  The logistics plan for the crane is also being worked out and finalized, so look for that to come in early April.

The TG Nickel team will reach the bottom of the site this week and celebrate the “bottoming out” of the project.  The building is on the rise.  Our mass pours are behind us and this week we expect to pour the first basement for two thirds of the site.  Keep your eye to the sky because the crane is coming!

TG Nickel is continuing with soil excavation on the southern portion of the site.  The first portion of the foundation walls are being poured.  TG Nickel is also installing rebar in preparation for the second continuous pour for “mat B”, which is scheduled for 2/24.

TG Nickel has successfully completed the first continuous pour of the mat “A” portion of the foundation.  2,150 cubic yards of concrete were delivered to the site across 215 trucks, sourced from 3 different concrete plants.  This was a major achievement for our team, as it allowed us to complete a large section of the building’s foundation over one weekend rather than breaking it up over several work weeks.
