Construction Update

Here we are with another construction update. This one will focus on building pads at the retail site to utility work up the residential site drive to some of the  same ongoing earthwork on the residential site from the previous construction update!

So we will be showing progress all the way up the hill.

These below are the site maps that number the points where the pictures were taken.

This top one is the residential hill.

This site map above is of the retail site at the bottom of the residential hill.

(All photos below will be numbered as to where they were taken on the site maps above.)

These first two panoramas will show building pads on the retail site.The first panorama shows one building pad that has been built up to the height of the finished floor for the building that will be built here in the months ahead.  In the next few weeks, Trumbull will place an additional 18 feet of soil on top of this building pad (called a surcharge).  This surcharge will have about the same weight of the building that will be built at this location, and will compact the existing ground to prepare it to support the building. The is only temporary, and once the existing ground has been compacted, then that soil from the surcharge will be used for grading at the parking lot areas around the building.

Point #9 (Site Map Above)

This next panorama is showing the stripping of topsoil to prepare this portion of the site for additional earthwork.  The ground below the topsoil will be excavated in the coming weeks, and the topsoil is preserved so that it can be spread out over the ground surface after the excavation is completed.

Point #10 A (Site Map Above)

The next panorama is showing the location for the 84 Lumber earthwork operations . On this day, th earthwork operation with the onroad dump trucks is not working  so that the two utility crews on the residential drive can get more work done without trucks hauling soil down the hill.
