We hope this message finds you safe and well. Below are the latest updates on our progress at "The Emery".
Power Connection Work in Streets
We are nearing inspection on the Halleck street power connection work. PG&E has given us an inspection date of 11/4/2020. Once the inspection is passed we will pull all of our wires and then PG&E will provide a "tie-in" date to energize the project. We expect the "tie-in" to occur in about 4-6 weeks.
EBMUD Water Connections
EBMUD permanent water system tie in locations have been opened up at Sherwin & Hubbard and Horton and 46th street. Once we are ready EBMUD will connect us to their water system. We anticipate this will occur in 4-6 weeks.
On Site This Week
Building B1 wood framing started last week and continues this week. Scaffolding will start going up on the exterior of the building.
Building B2 level 3 North parking deck continuing to make progress.
B2 level 3 South parking deck shotcrete walls and columns will be placed today.
Building D grading resumes November 2nd with excavation of the balance of the footings starting on November 4th.
Sanitary sewer installation along the western edge of the site is complete. Storm sewer work should be complete by the end of this week.
We have received a few questions about the exterior wall "mock ups" being constructed at the south end of the site along the Sherwin Avenue frontage. These mock ups help us demonstrate how we will sequence, detail, and build certain exterior conditions of our buildings. The location of these mock ups was determined by available space on site and they face inward so what is visible to the neighbors may look like the back of a movie set.
Have a safe week and we will be in touch with additional updates as the work progresses.
