As Boston has its first real snowfall of the year, work continues on the new Charlesview garage: a single-level, 110,000 s.f., underground structure that will span two city blocks when complete, as well as provide the foundation support for six buildings above grade.
Work has progressed so that nearly 100 percent of the perimeter concrete footings have been set, formed and poured, and two-thirds of the perimeter garage walls are complete. Interior footings and elevator pits are ongoing. Below slab utility work began this week. With a coordinated effort, aided by the mild winter thus far, construction on the garage proceeds on schedule, with the overall project slightly ahead of schedule for the projected autumn 2013 completion.
Over the holidays, JMA, J. Derenzo Co. (site contractor) and J.L. Marshall (concrete) continued progress on the garage structure. Excavation is nearing an end as soil removal will finish near the end of the month. As the excavation bottom has become available, formwork and reinforcing rebar has been placed and concrete foundations have been poured. Nearly three-quarters of the perimeter footings are complete.
Above the footings, nearly a third of the garage walls have already been completed. The garage work continues to benefit from the mild winter weather (until today!) and JMA aims to begin installing the garage deck steel in March.
