Two for One. (Feb 28)

Two for One.  

We hit Two milestones in One week.

The first milestone is that we added two additional subcontractors to the project site.  The fire sprinkler subcontractor and the fire alarm subcontractor.  The second milestone is that the last concrete floor is being poured today.

Fire Sprinkler Pipe

Fire sprinkler pipe is made from high strength steel and comes to the job site in long 21- foot lengths.  The Contractor cuts the pipe to the correct length and then uses a tool to bend a groove in at the end of the pipe.  Two pipes are connected together with a pipe coupling. The pipe coupling sets down into this groove and holds the two pieces of pipe together.

Concrete is delivered to the project site in that standard round barreled cement truck.  The concrete is then poured into the hopper of the Concrete pumper truck and then it is pumped up to the third floor of UAS Freshman Residence Hall I.

Although, the concrete pump truck saves tons of work, hauling around a 4” diameter hose filled with concrete is still a lot of hard work.

We are glad to have all of the concrete floors poured.  This further reduces the delays of bad weather and also gives more area for the contractor to work and to bring in the subcontractors for electrical, mechanical, fire sprinkler, fire alarm, and soon sheet rock.
