Construction Update December 2017
December brought the much anticipated installation of our 8 foot, 410 gallon custom designed Aquarium by CNY Aquatic Services located in Skaneateles, New York. The aquarium is showcased in the Entryway of the building and will provide much enjoyment for our residents, guests, and staff. This was very much a "Team Effort" to lift and move the tank into place.
Special thank you goes out to Jim Bracci from Mid-County Auto Body & Glass in Delhi, NY for providing the manpower necessary to help move the more than 800 pound tank into place.
Anticipating the grand opening in October, construction continues to progress both inside and outside the building. A freshly paved driveway leads you to the entry lobby of this state-of-the-art skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility.
Parapet framing has been completed. The roof installation is underway and Wing A & B will be watertight by the end of next week. The masonry has started in the courtyard and vinyl trim has started around the windows. Excavation for the new storm water management system is continuing on the west side of the Addition.
Parapet framing continuing around to B wing. Majority of the new windows are in place at the addition. The slab on grade has been poured at B wing as well, with the prep work for the slab on grade pour at A wing being coordinated. The roof materials at B wing have been delivered and construction of the roof at B wing has commenced. Steel joists are all in place with the only remaining decking to be laid at the high canopy at the new main entry.
With the exterior sheathing in place, taping of the joints has commenced as well as installation of the new windows on the first level. Metal decking is being laid out and fastened to the joists at A wing. Parapet framing is occurring at B wing and starting to shape what the elevation will eventually look like at the addition.
The joists and structural steel are 85% in place, as spreading of the joists at A and I wing continue. Sheathing around the second level exterior wall of the addition is nearing completion. Metal decking at the B wing roof has been started and laid out. Light pole bases are continuing to be set around the site.
Construction is continuing as the summer draws to a close.
Structural Steel and Joists continue to be set, detailed and welded into place. The crane has moved from the center courtyard at the addition to the main entry circle, to better reach and erect the canopy steel and joists at what will be the future main entry for the Delhi Rehabilitation & Nursing Center. Along the 2nd level exterior walls the ZIP system is being fastened into place as well.
