Lancaster Patient Care Center Construction Update March 8, 2019
Site foreman David Leblanc (DHI) is doing a good job in coordinating the multiple phases of the project. Progress both on the exterior and interior of the building is flowing well under David’s direction.
Commonwealth Construction has installed most of the windows in the new buliding. As the connector corridor is the last phase of the exterior work, those windows will be installed once the floor is poured and exterior studs and sheathing are in place. Hardy-Board siding has been ordered and should be on site next week. Once the sheathing has been strapped, Commonwealth Construction will install the siding. (So much for not seeing exterior appearance changes.)
RG Gosselin was on site again to pour the floor of the entryways and the landing pad on the penthouse. Unfortunately a fitting failed on the pumper truck, which will delay the penthouse pour until they are back to pour the connector corridor floor. DG Roofing was back this week to apply the roofing system on the connector corridor roof.
The ground floor interior walls are being installed. Quality Insulation sprayed foam on all the exterior walls this week. Interior walls were installed in the electrical and machine rooms, and sheet rock installed and the first coat of mud applied. These walls are being completed to allow Daniels Electric to mount the electrical distribution panels. McGee Plumbing has installed several feet of copper pipe and PVC drain lines. Daniels Electric has installed electrical conduit and boxes in walls. Both companies are doing good quality work.
The 1st Floor has over half the wall studs in place. Electrical boxes are mounted throughout the rooms. Plumbing rough-in is going well. Wilco Direct has started installing the vertical duct work. They told me that they have 15,000 pounds of duct work ready to install. It sounded like a lot of duct work, but they still have another 15,000 pounds more to fabricate.
The 2nd floor is still a shell that has windows, insulation, and some duct work in it. Floors have been cleaned and sweep. Stone River architect Jamie Neefe and DHI project manager Chris Hebert have been busy in the background reviewing submittals and promptly addressing changes to keep the project on schedule.
