Arriving at New Heights
This week, Thyseen Krupp Elevator Company hoisted into place the escalators and shopping cart conveyors. The use of heavy rigging and special skills were required to accomplish this task.
With the main units in place, a clearer view of the future transportation system, from one level to another can be seen. Basic installation will be followed by trim-out and handrail installation.
Installation and final testing of the pallet-lift system was completed this week as well. This system will lift pallets from the loading dock at the ground level, to the third floor Stockroom.
The final installation phase of the freight elevator system is now taking place. This elevator will move larger merchandise from the ground level loading dock to the third floor retail center.
Installation of VCT Flooring moved forward with leaps and bounds this week. Installation of the PVC wood plank flooring system will begin next.
In spite of the wet conditions on-site, installation of the decorative paving system at the Plaza moved forward. The granular base materials have been placed and fine-graded, with anticipation of the patterned concrete that will follow.
