Construction Bulletin: Aug. 15, 2008
For the Week of Aug. 18
Site Foundation Work Evolves
- Intermittent concrete pours will continue on Seneca Street and Boren
Avenue throughout the week. Concrete trucks will begin pouring at 8 a.m. on
Seneca and 9 a.m. on Boren. Seneca and Boren will be limited to one lane in
each direction during the construction pours. Parking on the south side of
Seneca also will be unavailable temporarily.
- Steel deliveries for the foundation continue this week on Seneca and
Spring Street. This work requires temporary parking restrictions on the south
and north side of Seneca (6 a.m. to 6 p.m. north side; 24 hours south side).
- As work around the foundation evolves, our activities over the next few weeks will focus on pouring footings, columns and walls, laying rebar, and installing piping and conduits.
Commitment to Crane Safety
Virginia Mason and our work team are deeply committed to ensuring 100-percent safety for our neighbors and our team.
We have implemented a thorough safety and communications effort that includes the following:
- Dedicated Web page on the Virginia Mason site about tower-crane safety and
- Construction hotline at (206) 341-1511 that you may call any time to leave your questions or concerns. We also ask that you use this hotline as a way to report unusual activity on or around the site.
