Progress at the 325 Henry Street site in Brooklyn has charged ahead through the summer and fall. The project has progressed from a seventeen-foot deep excavation to a complete concrete foundation and superstructure. As of this publishing, the building has topped out and the crew is preparing for the next phase of work. We are all excited to see this building continue to take shape as the facade construction begins.
Superstructure work is well underway at 47th Street and we are pushing toward topping out the structure soon. Every week a section of the old floor structure is removed making way for new steel and concrete slabs. As the structure continues upward, the framing is being laid out below, giving the first glimpse of what these apartments will be like.
Now that we’ve finished the first phase of interior removals, the excavation phase begins. This includes the underpinning of the neighboring buildings and front wall, as well as 6’ of bedrock excavation. These photos showcase preparation for the pouring of concrete foundation walls by way of sheeting, shoring, line drilling and lagging. The steel bracing holds up the existing four floors while excavation is finished.
