BUILDING PROJECT

Construction Updates

Weekly Update

March 12, 2021

  1. Cornerstone Plumbing –
    Cornerstone continued work both inside and out this week.  They spent some time exploring the former sanitary lines.  1st with an excavator and today with a camera.  The old lines were found to be 6” clay and other than a few cob webs, they were found to be clear and in good condition.
  2. D & L Grading worked with the plumbers this week to install the new drain tile around the new footings.  They have also stoned the new additions building pads. 
  3. Design Build Fire Protection has been busy this week installing the new sprinkler piping above fellowship hall.  There are multiple attic spaces in this area and each needs its own sprinkler protection.
  4. JC Building Systems assisted with select demo again this week by demoing out an old CMU wall that was failing.  They also spent some time assisting with a footing that we needed to underpin by hand digging.
  5. Northern Concrete has been running multiple crews to keep things pushing forward.  This week they have poured the balance of the new footings, set and poured approximately ½ of the new foundation walls, and have stripped the 1st pour and have begun setting up for the final foundation pour.  
  6. Paun’s Construction masons constructed the new structural CMU wall in the area of the former Pine Room.  The existing wall that was in this location was failing due to inadequate bearing at a critical masonry jamb. 
  7. Pure Mechanical worked throughout the lower-level this week.  The majority of their time was spent on the new ductwork in the Sunday school rooms.
