AFZ+3 (2nd floor redux)
Evanston, Illinois 60201
PROJECT UPDATE (10.25.2011):
Matt and I started interior/exterior demolition at our current adaptive re-use project, 604-606 davis on 10.3.11. The construction site constraints require a meticulously designed schedule. At times, there have been 3 trades (masonry, concrete & carpentry) productively working in the 44’x38’ rear yard that receives the 2nd floor addition.Demolition for this phase has been completed. The masons will finish their “preparation” work this week; concrete pier installation is in process and will be followed by steel erection for the 2nd floor addition at the end of the week. Our 2 carpentry crews will continue with their exterior work on davis street and interior partitions. Next week, 2nd floor addition framing will start.
Our challenge (as with the “red church”) is to have the shell built and watertight before the weather turns. Project coordination is paramount…WINTER is coming.
MATT’S on the job orchestrating several trades on a confined site
INTERIOR DEMOLITION: partitions are”x”d and removed
INTERIOR DEMOLITION: the metal lathe/plaster ceiling is “peeled”, lathe removedand then loaded Into a dumpster. the metal is re-cycled.
INTERIOR DEMOLITION: water is sprayed to mitigate the dust. debris build-up is kept to a minimum
INTERIOR DEMOLITION: metal is organized for re-cycling
EXTERIOR DEMOLITION: the davis street window wall is unfastened and “pushed” to the interior
EXTEROR DEMOLITION: due to site constraints, this storage building is removed by hand
COMED: the existing 400A electrical service is being re-used. the service drop is wrapped by 4’ sections of rubber “boot” for safety.
CARPENTRY: usually, the truss/roof deck system is supported by another truss at the end wall…not here, thus we needed to install temporary shoring
EXTERIOR DEMOLITION: the masons stack the excess “common brick” for recycling as the walls are removed
EXTERIOR DEMOLITION: the concrete stair remained useful for this project phase…
EXTERIOR DEMOLITION: 3 out of 4 walls have been removed…now the stair
EXTERIOR DEMOLITION: the masons remove wall #4
MASONRY: concurrently with the demolition taking place to the right, wall openings are modified
CARPENTRY: one crew frames this stub wall that receives a microlam beam that cantilevers into the public way
CARPENTRY: another crew frames tenant demising walls
CARPENTRY: kris and tomek continue framing the overhang
CARPENTRY: cantilevered microlam is in place and has received another microlam which will support the overhanging window elements (looking SW)
