40 micro piles have been installed so far under the building foundations. We are averaging 4 to 5 piles per day. The drilling conditions have been fairly consistent with the bedrock at 40 to 50 feet below the building. The challenge has been to clean up the large quantity of muddy water from the drilling operation that accumulates quickly in the basement area. Wysong Construction is pumping the muddy water into holding bins and using small Bobcat excavators to haul the mud out of the basement. The micro pile installation is expected to be complete by mid-October.
The two remaining trees closest to Palma Ave. are being cut down. Jim Wilkins, president of the Atascadero Historical Society has big plans for the larger trunk wood. He plans to have the wood milled into various pieces of usable lumber to be used on projects that will enhance the Historical Society grounds and the City Hall Project. Some of the wood is to be made into collectible souvenirs which will be sold to offset the expenses incurred to move and mill the wood. The Atascadero Historical Society's proceeds from the August 9, 2011 Tuesday in the Park BBQ will be utilized to begin the milling process so please join them by purchasing dinner tickets.
Diani Building Corp. has completed the historic building component marking. They will start to remove these items next week and prepare the building interior for abatement work, which is the next phase before actual interior demolition begins. Alpha Fire Protection completed the dry stand pipe repair and the Atascadero Fire Department approved the installation. The fire sprinkler system has been shut down and it will be removed as part of the interior demolition work. Alpha will install a new fire sprinkler system that provides complete coverage of all building areas in the new construction phase.
