Six storeys in the hole on Parkdale

You are here

I want to thank Brigil Homes who this morning showed me around their excavation site six storeys below ground. It was fascinating, and I always appreciate learning how these projects are constructed. The disruptive work of hoe-ramming is almost done, and residents in Mechanicsville can look forward to a relatively quiet summer as the building will soon begin to rise out of the hole. It was good to learn more about how the site drainage will work, how the building interfaces with City services, and the actual process of heavy civil construction. Thanks especially to Scott Robert who was my tour guide for a leisurely look around, and for answering my many questions.
