5.09 | City Creek Center: Setting a Fraco double-decker with a 40 foot bridge
This past week AMC's brick layers were able to begin placing brick on the west side of Building 7 and it's moving along quite smoothly. The work looks great and the brick crew is currently completing a floor along the radius every 2-3 days. We also flew in another double-deck mast climbing brigde on the south end of Building 7. Click to view a cool 5-hour timelapse of some of the process. The scaffold was entirely set and ready for service in about 10 hours. It is now built to the roof and is in service (sheathers started work the very next day). This scaffold was built out quickly and it will make for a safe & efficient work place for our brick masons and the other subs that are using it.
2.09 | City Creek Center Update
Allen's Masonry has been busy building scaffold at City Creek Center in downtown Salt Lake City. To date two double-mast, double-platform Fraco scaffold; one Klimber double-mast, double-platform scaffold; and two single-mast, single platform scaffolds have been flown in and set up and are ready to start serving the job-site. As a fast-track construction schedule is in effect, AMC's hydraulic mast climbing scaffold will serve many subcontractors on the job before AMC even lays a single brick. Brick laying is scheduled to begin in the next 30-days.
12.08 | AMC Begins Work on Two Buildings at City Creek Center
Okland Construction awarded AMC with the contract to complete two 10-story residential towers within City Creek Center. The project will consist of brick veneers with cast-stone accents and CMU, and will take over 9-months to complete. City Creek Center is a 20-acre mixed-use redevelopment of downtown Salt Lake City and is scheduled for completion in 2012. As part of a "fast-track" construction plan, AMC is currently setting scaffold and will begin laying brick as other construction crews continue the vertical build above them and will continue to follow the structural building process as it progresses vertically.
