Our construction manager, Jerry Walker, inspects the beginning stages of our elevator shaft that will be used as the primary access to the second floor of the building. The vertical rods coming out of the cinder-block walls are reinforced steel which adds strength and integrity to the structure of the elevator shaft.
The site superintendent, Bernie Campbell, and our construction manager look on as the masons continue to add courses of block to the elevator shaft which will eventually be over 25 feet high.
The structure continues to get taller. Jerry checks to ensure everything meets the specifications of the construction documents.
As the elevator shaft continues to be raised the plumbers and electricians began to run pipes and electrical conduit through out the building pad in preparation for the concrete slab on grade to be poured.
Looking more like a watchtower, the elevator shaft has reached it’s full height. The architects are here meeting with the site superintendent to review the progress!
Looking from the interior of the building the elevator door opening for each floor can be seen. Bae-Won Koh, our project architect compares the details on his plans with the actual construction to ensure all specifications and requirements are being met.
