At the beautiful end to a soggy week, here are several photos from above the garage deck, as a 52-unit, mixed use building along Western Ave reaches its full height, and from below the deck, as concrete and plumbing work continues apace.
Work continues rapidly this week with additional concrete pours scheduled on the deck and garage levels. Crews work quickly ahead of the pours on the structural steel connections and detailing, installing the metal deck and on the subslab systems. The deck structure now enables work to continue on both levels simultaneously. See the pictures below from around the garage construction.
It has been an exciting few weeks on the Charlesview site as the garage structure has been quickly erected. What a difference two weeks can make at this stage of construction!
The first concrete deck over the roof of the garage is being poured by concrete sub JL Marshall today. This particular pour is an important step in the construction sequencing; that section is where the crane will sit to erect the first Western Ave midrise once the concrete cures to the proper strength next month. The garage floor slab pours will follow each deck-level pour.

Some images from the site as structural steel erection proceeds rapidly across the garage level. Concrete pouring of the slab on deck should begin next week, weather permitting.

Beginning this past Monday, steel that had been fabricated in Maine began arriving on site. The superstructure of the garage has been quickly going into place over the first few days, beginning on the west side of the garage.
