With the winter weather becoming an increasing threat day-to-day, there has been a major focus on tidying up loose ends as far as exterior work goes. This includes focusing on getting as much of the exterior concrete completed as possible, with the remainder planned for completion in the spring.
The best word to describe activity onsite since the last update would be busy! Major progress has been made onsite on all fronts. Focus on LEAN, paired with the team culture here at Mosaic has allowed us to be successful in building an awesome building and having fun at the same time.
Upon arrival at work Friday morning we noticed there was an "intruder" in the building.
August has been another awesome month here for us at the Mosaic Project. Major progress has been made with the building envelope and atrium work.
It seems like every update we can thank the weather gods for this awesome summer we’ve been having. The dry weather has been helping our site progress on many fronts. Curb crossing construction is well underway and we anticipate pouring in the next few days. Once these are completed and the parking lot paved, access to site will be much improved.
Work has been progressing well with the construction of the superstructure here at Mosaic. The great weather over the past few weeks has allowed us to work without fighting the mud and puddles. The main focus has been on the construction of the east section of the building, mainly the glulam structure installation and the framing of exterior walls.
Construction is pushing ahead rapidly here onsite. Over the past few weeks, the main focus has been the boring of the geothermal wells, foundation work and the preparation for the assembly of the superstructure.
Work is moving along steadily here at the Mosaic Centre. The freezing temperatures over the past few weeks have allowed us to work without fighting the mud and soft soil conditions. This has improved efficiencies as well as the general mood onsite; nobody likes playing in the mud for 10 hours a day. Who would have thought the return of winter would be such a blessing!!
It’s been a busy few weeks here onsite with setup of project offices, pile layout, water & mud management along with piling. Startup is my favorite part of a project. The decisions made early in the game regarding site setup and logistics have such a huge impact throughout the course of construction. One of the most challenging parts of this setup was to get a good feel for the "lay of the land" and how the site surface characteristics would affect runoff. We received a large amount of snow this winter and it was decided to do a bulk snow removal from site to help mitigate some of the surface runoff.
