Wake Spine – Week 7

The 7th week of construction on the Wake Spine project picked up after the Thanksgiving holiday.

Tremendous progress continues at the new medical office fitup, as designed by Gontram Architecture.  Sheetrock finishing, HVAC rough-in, and electrical work overhead continued this week.  Ceramic tile installation began in the restrooms.  Prime paint was put on the walls and door frames.

This project is due to be complete by mid January, 2018. So far, so good.

Bone & Joint Surgery Clinic – Week 7

The 7th week of construction picked up after the Thanksgiving holiday.

Tremendous progress continues at the new Bone & Joint Surgery Clinic, as designed by Gontram Architecture.  Sheetrock finishing, HVAC rough-in, and electrical work overhead continued this week.  The X-ray suite was further refined with the wall electrical work.

This project is due to be complete by mid January, 2018. So far, so good.

AECOM/URS/NCTA – Week 05

No crazy, shoddy, prior-construction nightmares to report this week, at least not noteworthy enough to include here.

We are plugging away at the new call center facility for the North Carolina Turnpike Authority’s toll operations. Sheetrock hanging, HVAC rough-in, and electrical work overhead continued this week.  Concrete was also patched back.

This project is due to be complete by late January, 2018. So far, so good.

Wake Spine Clinic – Week 6

We are plugging away at the new Wake Spine Clinic, as designed by Gontram Architecture.  Sheetrock finishing, HVAC rough-in, and electrical work overhead continued this week.

This project is due to be complete by early January, 2018. So far, so good.

Bone & Joint Surgery Clinic – Week 6

A holiday week is always tough to get things accomplished.  Thanksgiving is not just a one day holiday, either (even though it is just one day on the calendar).  Workers (and Inspectors, especially) like to roll that into a 5-day weekend, turning one lost day into 3.

Regardless, we are plugging away at the new Bone & Joint Surgery Clinic, as designed by Gontram Architecture.  Sheetrock finishing, HVAC rough-in, and electrical work overhead continued this week.

This project is due to be complete by early January, 2018. So far, so good.

AECOM/URS/NCTA – Week 04

During a renovation project, we get to see a LOT of crazy stuff.  This project is no different.  Last week, we accidentally discovered an uncapped cleanout from the original project.  It was left open (no cleanout cover), stuffed with plastic sheeting, covered over with concrete, and a wall was built on top of it.

We discovered it when we attempted to patch the concrete “divot” after the wall was removed during demolition. The concrete actually pushed the “plug” further down the pipe. By the time the worker realized it was a pipe, too much concrete had been put into the pipe and the whole assembly had to be cut out and replaced (oops).

Regardless, we are plugging away at the new call center facility for the North Carolina Turnpike Authority’s toll operations. Sheetrock hanging, HVAC rough-in, and electrical work overhead continued this week.

This project is due to be complete by late January, 2018. So far, so good.

AECOM/URS/NCTA – Week 3

Construction entered the 3rd week of the expansion of the AECOM/URS call center space in Morrisville, NC.

With Demolition complete, wall framing is well underway.  Previously installed concrete trenches that were not properly doweled in to the surrounding slab had settled over the years.  They have been removed.  Some soft soils around some old plumbing pipes appear to be the cause of the settlement, so that is being repaired.

Mechanical, electrical and plumbing rough-in are all underway.

The expanded office space will add much needed seats in the company’s call center space as more toll roads come online in North Carolina.

The project is being delivered via the Architect-led Design-Build process with Gontram Architecture.

Construction is scheduled to be complete in early 2018.

Bone & Joint Surgery Clinic – Week 5

Week 5 was even busier than Week 4 at the Bone & Joint Surgery Clinic project in Raleigh, NC.  The tight schedule on this project is proving a challenge in this occupied building, but we are managing, so far.

Rough-in inspections were signed off so sheetrock installation has begun.  Sound batt insulation is installed between the metal stud framing.  Mechanical and electrical rough-in continues overhead.

The future 9,000-square feet tenant space will soon be home to the Bone & Joint Surgery Clinic.

Wake Spine – Week 5

Things are starting to take shape at the Wake Spine project.  Sheetrock has been installed and (mostly) finished.

Mechanical and electrical rough-in continues overhead while Plumbing rough-in finishes up underneath.

The future 4,500-square feet tenant space will soon be home to the Wake Spine Clinic.

Bone & Joint – Week 4

Week 4 has seen a flurry of activity.  A complex project with a tight schedule is keeping us hopping, but we were up to the task.

Metal stud framing, electrical and plumbing rough-ins are nearing completion.  Inspections should be signed off early next week, allowing sheetrock hanging to begin in this suite.

The future 9,000-square feet tenant space will soon be home to the Bone & Joint Surgery Clinic.
