Deep Foundation Piles – Anticipated neighborhood impact: 4 of 5 (noise and trucks)

The second and final planned installation of deep foundation piles will start around November 10 and be finished within two weeks or less, weather pending. We thank our immediate neighbors for their patience during this process.

Given the generally unstable soil conditions of our site, certain sections of the brewery and all of the Liquid Center must rely on deep foundation piles, i.e. steel H-beams driven into the ground until reaching bedrock.  This process is loud, with ground vibration being felt by neighbors closest to the site.  We’ve contracted a local geotechnical firm to monitor noise and vibration levels along the perimeter of our site during this process.

Pre-Cast Wall Arrival and Setting – Anticipated neighborhood impact: 2 of 5 (truck deliveries)

Steel DeliveryAnticipated neighborhood impact: 2 of 5 (truck deliveries)

Foundation work runs through the first of next year.  We are forming the Brew House deck now and expect to pour the deck on November 14, 2014

Saturday, November 14– Morning Concrete Pour– potential of an early start, with the process starting around 5 UPDATED 11/11/14 the process will start around 7 a.m. and last about 10-12 hours. To have enough time to pour and set (10-12 hours) the amount of concrete needed for the Brew House deck, we are pouring on Saturday, November 14 and starting at 7 a.m. we are applying for City permits to start pouring concrete in the early morning on November 14. There will be generators and back up beeping from the trucks.

Thank you for your patience with us during the morning cellar deck concrete pour on October 18.
