Update from October 12, 2022

  • A substantial soil off-haul effort took place over the past month with over 60 “super-dump” truck loads, approximately 600 cubic yards leaving the site to make room for the new structure. Some excess soil will remain on site for backfilling the retaining walls. 
  • In efforts to preserve the large Oak tree on the corner of Willow and Tamalpais, a temporary retaining wall was installed so the root ball and surrounding soil did not have to be excavated to make room for the new foundation.
  • Building pad certification is expected by tomorrow, 10/7, which confirms the grades, soil compaction and location are per the plans and specifications.
  • Footing work will begin following pad certification to prepare the perimeter and other critical structural supports for the new foundation.
  • Retaining wall form work and utility trenching will further prepare the site for the foundation pour.
  • Structural steel details have been reviewed and approved for off-site fabrication and will be brought to the site following all concrete work .
