We hope this message finds everyone safe and well.
- Concrete placement for foundation work will start the week of 5/4/20 and will be continuous for several weeks starting with building B2 and then progressing to buildings D, B1, and finally C. The Contractor will stage concrete trucks on Wood Street adjacent to the Target shopping center pursuant to our approved haul route in the construction management plan. Please expect elevated traffic to and from the site and more total construction workers on site. There may also be elevated levels of noise associated with the placement of the concrete.
- Installation of drilled displacement columns (DDC's) continues at the Building D site. We estimate completion by May 13th for Building D, after which we will move to Building B1 DDC's. These columns are placed to help stabilize the ground before foundations are installed.
- Please keep in mind that in order to prevent dirt from tracking out onto the streets and subsequent storm water pollution we are required to operate street sweeping services by the State Water Board , the DTSC, and the City of Emeryville. The street sweeper truck takes about 4 passes to clean the entire width of the roadway so you may hear it going back and forth in the same stretch of roadway multiple times. We have directed the street sweeper to pause for at least 30 minutes before re-starting sweeping once it has completed the same roadway in an effort to minimize disruptions to the neighbors. We hope that will help.
- Please find an image of the site as of 5/1/20 where you can see the progress of the building B2 footings (see all the rectangular squares cut out of the soil)
We appreciate the patience of our neighbors as we construct "The Emery" . Please don't hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions during this time.
