Construction Meeting Updates – December 21

Finals are over, the fall semester is over, and now, finally, the rain is over. The pace is picking up once again. Here are the updates:

*The westerly point of connection (POC) in the northwest section of the steam tunnel has been tied in. The easterly POC was being tied in this afternoon.

Westerly POC.

Easterly POC.

*Testing of the steam pipes is expected to begin tomorrow. Once testing is complete, the pre-cast lids can be placed on the tunnel and backfill can begin. That process is expected to begin next week.

Pre-cast lids were finished in early September.

*Demolition of the Aztec Center’s south wall was completed this afternoon. It wasn’t quite as exciting as the Berlin Wall coming down in 1989, but significant nonetheless. “It was a nice wall,” said excavator operator Patrick Carey.

*Grading of the basement area and work on the northeast section of the steam tunnel will commence soon.

That is all for blog posts in 2011. No construction meeting next Wednesday. Thanks for reading and see you in 2012!
