Belated due to ongoing change work, but we officially turned over Bridge Point I-5 Building 1 in Milton at the end of September. The building is 1,023,960 SF which is hard to wrap your head around until you’ve walked the 1.2-mile lap around the site. The South loading dock sits on top of a 15,000,000 Gallon, 118,000 SF storm vault that handles the stormwater from the entire 120-acre development. Between the vault and the building, a total of 53,000 CY of concrete was poured. We filled the South side of the site using 82,000 SF of MSE retaining wall and made room on the NE side with 18,000 SF of soil nail cut wall. I don’t think any of us had a look of confidence on our faces when we surveyed the building corners about 100 yards over a hill into the woods when we showed up, but we managed to turn the project over on time to a happy client despite Mother Nature and our Subcontractor’s best efforts.
It feels like half of the company contributed to the project at one point or another- but extra thanks to May Jensen, Andy Bley, the one and ONLY Tim Clark, Tommy James, Gary Wood, Christian Cox, Dylan Logan, and many others. I especially wanted to thank all our field crew and Mr. Justin Fay French. We didn’t put down all of that concrete from our computers and we wouldn’t have turned over this project to a happy client without their hard work fighting through all of the elements and constraints of what was a very difficult site.
Carrasco continues to press forward with what may be the hardest part of the entire project: widening a city street, installing fish-bearing culvert, pin pile-supported utilities, and round-about through a residential area with lots of people who are not excited to see change. As expected, he’s managed to befriend nearly all of the residents on 5th Ave and is on track to finish up this Spring with what is surely the most extensive roadwork project we’ve undertaken."
