Wake Spine – Week 4

Week 4 at the Wake Spine project has seen another week of furious activity.  A complex project with a tight schedule, over an occupied tenant space (with near 24/7 business hours) has proven challenging, but we were up to the task.

Metal stud framing, electrical and plumbing rough-ins are complete and inspected.  Sheetrock hanging has begun in this suite.

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

AECOM/URS/NC Turnpike Authority – Week 2

Construction entered the 2nd week of the expansion of the AECOM/URS call center space in Morrisville, NC.  AECOM/URS is a subcontractor for the NC Turnpike Authority and manages toll collection for the agency.

Demolition is now complete, and wall framing has begun.  Electrical rough-in, concrete removal and plumbing rough-in are all on the schedule for next week.

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.

Wake Spine – 02 – Framing in progress

In the 2nd week of construction on Wake Spine’s latest location, metal stud framing was well underway.  20-gauge metal studs line the halls and divide exam rooms.  Electrical boxes are roughed-in and plumbing work is underway.

Resilient channel is run horizontally from stud to stud to help reduce sound transmission between exam rooms.

The new Raleigh, NC location is expected to be open for patients in January 2018.

Bone & Joint – 02 – Framing underway

Week 2 of construction was busy with wall framing, electrical rough-in, and plumbing. Some walls were treated with resilient channel framing to reduce noise transmission between exam rooms.

NC School Boards Association Assembly Hall gets facelift

The North Carolina School Boards Association building in Raleigh is home to numerous office tenants along with the Association that represents public school personnel.  On the ground floor of the building is a large Assembly Hall that is used for group meetings and conferences.

Assembly Hall – Before

The room was in desperate need of an upgrade, and Ten Penny Construction came equipped to propose material options, discuss pricing alternatives, and perform the work in less than 2 weeks time.

The project involved various sheetrock repairs, new carpet tiles, new wallcovering, new ceiling tiles, new LED lighting with a lighting control system, new ceramic tile, new paint, and re-installation of their photo display millwork.

The entire room and two common corridors were upgraded as part of this project.

Michael Jordan Collision – 20

Lots of hard work coming together in the last few weeks of the Michael Jordan Collision Center project in Durham, NC.

Work recently completed includes VCT flooring, ceramic tile, cabinetry, ceiling tile installation, and more.  On the exterior, the front driveway entrance and concrete tie-ins  were poured, and the fire line and domestic water line work was completed.

This coming week, we will install doors, toilet partitions/accessories, plumbing fixtures, and other last minute touches in preparation for final inspections.

On the exterior, the front driveway entrance and fire line will be inspected, fencing work completed, and landscaping may be installed.

Work recently completed includes prime paint, ceiling grid, lighting, ductwork, above ceiling inspections, and more.  On the exterior, the rear drive was poured, and the fire line and domestic water line work was cleaned up.

Finishing touches underway include ceramic floor and wall tile, painting in Body Shop area, ceiling tile installation, and others.

Next week, we will see VCT flooring installed, cabinetry, and plumbing fixtures. The last bit of fire sprinkler work should be completed next week as well.

We are coming down to the wire at the Micheal Jordan Collision Center project in Durham, NC. With a month to go, work is at a fever pitch.

After a week or so of bad weather, work has picked up again on the rear drive installation.  geotechnical reinforcing fabric and stone base has been placed, and will be prepped for concrete and poured next week.

The fire line installation is also nearing completion.  The tap was made last week, and there has been much flushing and testing of the line happening this week before the final connections can be made.

Sprinkler work on the inside is nearing completion on the Lower Level.  Upper Level work will start next week.

Sheetrock finishing is complete and we are readying for ceiling grid, lights, painting and floor finishes to start next week.

The front entry canopy steel went up this week for the Michael Jordan Collision Center project in Durham, NC.  Schulz Ironworks from Raleigh threw up the canopy in 2-1/2 days with only the perforated metal sign panel left to be installed next week.  The canopy is one of the finishing touches on the much upgraded entrance of this former warehouse building.

Also, well underway is installation of the fire line that will soon provide water for the new fire sprinkler system that is required for the building.  Since this is a relatively large body shop, the North Carolina Building Code requires the building be completely protected by fire sprinklers.

On the interior, installation continues for the paint booths and prep decks.

Metal stud framing is now complete on the interior, and electrical wall rough-in is also nearing completion.  Plumbing rough-in finished earlier this week.

On the exterior, the new oil-sand separator tank (2,000-gallon concrete vault) was installed under the front parking lot.  Given the amount of rock encountered in other areas, we were relieved this installation went fairly smoothly.

A new sidewalk and steps was formed and poured to connect the Upper Level with the main entrance at the Lower Level.

Finally, the paint booths arrived and are about 50% complete.  They should be finished by the end of next week when the prep decks arrive.
