The Scoop: Progress at The Graphic
Our two-building residential development in Charlestown continues to make progress throughout the winter months. The first building is a 100-year-old, former print manufacturing facility that will be re-adapted into 45 new residential apartments. The second building onsite was a one-story printing warehouse, which is to be replaced by a four-story modular residential apartment building with a structural steel podium slab on deck with open parking below. We spoke with Field Engineer, Brian Wyer, to get the scoop:
The Graphic is progressing both indoors in Building A and outdoors where Building B will be located. Building A has framing going in from the third floor moving downward with mechanical work following. The masons are completing their elevator and stair shafts as the roofer is close to finalizing the new roof.
Building B has our site work contractor digging trench with the crews of Marguerite Concrete in tow, placing the building’s footing and high-wall. In the photograph directly below you can see Building B’s footprint with the high wall in progress.
