Phase I; April 11th Construction Update
A message to our neighbors from Pam Krecklow, Real Estate & Construction Manager, Albertina Kerr:

Greetings,

Well it has been a full week:

  • The change in weather has allowed us to get the first concrete pour done, which means we have footings.....yeah!
  • We got the new North driveway cut in.
  • Sub Acute's entrance got shifted from the South side of the building to the North side. Yes it's different but you get a great view of the construction site.
  • IT's (information technology) fiber work got completed so that project is done and the road between Louise and Sub Acute is open again.
  • We started the decommissioning process on the old well, which is beside the cold storage building.
  • We began interior demolition of the Louise Building, we aren't doing anything on the outside so all you will see is a bunch of stuff (including some horse hair plaster, yes that's how they made plaster back in 1925) being tossed into dumpsters.

Next week expect:

  • More concrete trucks, we will begin pouring our slabs which after those cure we will be going vertical.....the really exciting stuff!
  • We will be working on the area along 165th and the new emergency entrance to campus.
  • Coming Soon:

    • A new fire/water vault will be going in soon. Yes I am the only one probably excited about this one but it is a huge hurdle. This work will cause some issues for Sub Acute when it happens but we are working up plans to address all contingencies.

    As always if you have any issues, questions, or are just curious let me know.

Phase I; April 4th Construction Update
A message to our neighbors from Pam Krecklow, Real Estate & Construction Manager, Albertina Kerr:

Greetings,
As expected it was a pretty quiet this week. In spite of the rain we have been able to finish the trenching, pipe install, and slab layout. We have also made great process on installing rebar and the concrete forms. IT (information technology) has also been working on installing some fiber lines which is the work that has been happening on the road way behind the Louise Building.

Next week we can expect:

  • A new entrance into Sub Acute, we will be shifting the temporary entrance to the North side of the building versus were it is on the South side currently. Look for that to be open when you get to campus on Thursday the 10th.
  • The new Sub Acute entrance is allowing us to cut the new driveway in earlier than expected, keep in mind this is just forming it. We are not opening the driveway until we are done with construction.
  • Decommissioning of the old well that is adjacent to the Cold Storage Building (expecting that on Monday the 7th)
  • And yes we should have some concrete next week also.

Still excited as we will soon see some vertical elements happening as we move on to framing.

The parking will remain as depicted on the parking map. A new version is attached that reflects the new Sub Acute entrance but parking areas have not changed.

As always if you have any questions, concerns, or issues please let me know so the project team can get a solution.

Phase I; April 27th Construction Update
A message to our neighbors from Pam Krecklow, Real Estate & Construction Manager, Albertina Kerr:

Greetings,

As expected last week was just full of activity but the good news is everyone made it through without a scratch, expect for a buried 8" pipe.

A recap of last week activities included:

  • The 2014 flood, which was caused by a failed pipe fitting and all that water had to go somewhere. Just glad we got it stopped before entering the Sub Acute facility but it was a close one
  • This event did cause Sub Acute's water to be shut off for an additional day but we did get rid of port a potties on Thursday (YEAH)
  • Plus between Rockwood Water District and the Contractor (yes it took both of them) we did have to have flush the whole neighborhoods water system to clean it out late Tuesday night. This was pre flood but a huge inconvenience for the whole neighborhood
  • Water is back on and we have had no trouble since 4/23/14 so I am putting the flood and the sleepiness night behind me and moving forward
  • We did get exterior supports up on the Louise Building
  • And did start framing, WE HAVE WALLS. If you haven't seen them yet take a second and check it out.

Next week will be equally busy. Expect lots of activity as we:

  • Continue framing the new residence
  • Pour the slab for the Sub Acute addition (Tuesday). Again there are web cams up if anyone is tempted
  • We are expecting the residence roof trusses to be delivered on Wednesday
  • Will be taking the Cold Storage Building down this week also
  • Cold Storage Demo will affect the Sub Acute playground late in the week as we are moving the West fence in an attempt to make up some square footage that was lost when we adjusted the North fence. I am hoping for rain Thursday and Friday, sorry
  • We will be finishing up the interior demo at the Louise but still have some mitigation, wiring, and misc. elements to address so not done yet
  • Might (although it is a big might) see a wall or two appear for the Sub Acute expansion

Just a heads up but coming up in the near future:

  • The cut into the Sub Acute building. We will begin discussion this next week on schedule and plan just letting everyone know more is coming. Believe it or not there is an end in sight.
  • Lots for hammering as we begin framing on both buildings

Can't thank everyone, especially the neighbors, enough for their patience and support this last week. It was a trying one for everybody yet everyone, but me, handled the water shut down, flood, and resulting issues with so much grace that it warmed my heart. A huge thank you to everyone. If you have any questions, concerns, issues, or etc. please don't hesitate to give me a call.
