Basement Ceiling Slab - Prep Work

We are quickly getting ready to cast the basement ceiling slab (ground floor slab above the basement) which is roughly 14,000 sq feet. This section of slab will contain 40 tons of steel rod and 10,000 cft of concrete. We are scheduled to have everything complete for casting early next week.

Other work is ongoing around the site. Mass fill work is starting to make significant progress within the building area. The primarily below grade brick retaining walls are taking shape. These walls will ensure the newly compacted soils do not slowly migrate away from under the slab as well as providing a surface to install an exterior stone veneer.

A lot of fill still required in the central courtyard once the ceiling slab is cast and basement retaining wall is waterproofed
