Construction is well underway at The Benson Hotel (formerly Faculty Club). Recent and upcoming milestones include:

  • Tower Crane is up!
  • Grading and excavation is complete, as are the shoring and lagging activities.
  • Permanent transformer has been set and is operational.
  • Drilled caissons are underway and will be the focus of construction for the next 4 weeks.
  • Most caissons are 36″ in diameter and have been running 42-46 feet to bedrock.
  • Grade beams, mats, columns and foundation walls will follow shortly after.

Matt Armstrong has been leading the charge on a very involved BIM coordination. The efforts he has coaxed from the subs is outstanding and the progress he has made on the model is invaluable and nothing short of amazing.
