DISTILLERY WAREHOUSE


DISTILLERY WAREHOUSE LOFTS OBSERVED FROM B SEPTEMBER 17

Observations Workers are installing ICFs in preparation for concrete to be poured into the walls. Re-bar is also being placed in the ICFs in preparation for the concrete. Weather: 17oC, mostly clear skies


DISTILLERY WAREHOUSE LOFTS OBSERVED FROM B OCTOBER 7

Observations The second storey walls have are now sound with concrete and the third storey floor slabs have been installed. Re-bar protrudes from second floor walls to connect to third floor. Interior concrete walls have been poured and cast on the second level. Most of the workers are working indoors. Weather: 13oC, over cast, light rain


DISTILLERY WAREHOUSE LOFTS OBSERVED FROM A OCTOBER 16

Observations Most workers are focusing on the crane lift. A DULEPKA crane is used to lift precast concrete stairs, stair platforms and floor slabs. Some ICFs on the third level as well as re-bar in the core of the building have also been installed.All window and door openings on the third floor have been installed Weather: 17oC, overcast, light rain


DISTILLERY WAREHOUSE LOFTS OBSERVED FROM A OCTOBER 24

Observations A DULEPKA crane is typically utilized to lift the precast concrete building components. More ICFs have been insalled on the third storey. Vanson is a company used to provide excvation equipment. Weather: 5oC, moderately cloudy


DISTILLERY WAREHOUSE LOFTS OBSERVED FROM A NOVEMBER 4

Observations ICFs on third level are almost fully installed with some re-bar installation in the ICFs. A crane is lifting materials onto the third floor. Weather: 4oC, partly cloudy


DISTILLERY WAREHOUSE LOFTS OBSERVED FROM B NOVEMBER 11

Observations The construction fence was moved down closer to the site due to finishing components of the adjacent Marriott Hotel. Some third floor walls have had concrete poured in them and some floor slabs installed on top. All window and door openings on the third floor have been installed. Weather: 4oC, partly cloudy, light rain


DISTILLERY WAREHOUSE LOFTS OBSERVED FROM C NOVEMBER 13


Observations All walls on the third floor have been poured with concrete and some ICFs on the fourth level have been installed. Re-bar protrudes from the third floor walls in order to tie into the fourth floor walls. A crane is lifting the pre-cast floor slabs to be installed on the forth storey. A flatbed transport truck is delivering the pre-cast concrete floor slabs to be installed. Weather: 1oC, mostly cloudy


DISTILLERY WAREHOUSE LOFTS OBSERVED FROM D NOVEMBER 20

Observations More ICFs on the fourth level have been installed as well as some window and door openings have been finished. All pre-cast conrete floor slabs have been installed on the fourth level. Weather: 1oC, clear skies


DISTILLERY WAREHOUSE LOFTS ON-SITE OBSERVATION NOVEMBER 20

One of the main components of the building that can be seen by anyone passing, are the white ICFs that make up the walls. The ICFs specified for this building are from the company LOGIX. The ICF allows for a concrete mold while providing building insulation with the white polystyrene.

One of pre-cast components transported to the site are the stair platforms as well as the stairs themselves. These components are repeated elements that are easily broken up to make standard pieces thus allowing for them to be cast off-site. The photo on the top depicts the platform before installation while the photo on the bottom shows installed platform with the stairs.

STAIR PLATFORM

CONCRETE WALLS


DETAIL 2: STAIR PLATFORM This axonometric sketch of the pre-cast concrete stair platform depicts how the protrusions for the up and down stair to rest on are offset.

DETAIL 3: STAIR PLATFORM ANCHORAGE This axonometric sketch depicts how the stair platform is anchored to the concrete wall with L-shaped steel and concrete anchor bolts.

The photo above shows the re-bar installed in preparation to pour the concrete walls of the core of the structure. The core houses the elevator shaft, a garbage chute and a mechanical shaft.


DETAIL 4: BUILDING CORE

CONCRETE FLOOR SLABS

ELEVATOR SHAFT

GARBAGE CHUTE/ MECH SHAFT

CONCRETE FLOOR SLABS

This axonometric sketch depicts how the core of the building will look after the concrete is poured.


DISTILLERY WAREHOUSE LOFTS ON-SITE OBSERVATION NOVEMBER 20

The photo above shows what a typical exterior wall is comprised of. Re-bar is set into ICFs, then concrete is poured into the forms thus creating a finished wall with respect to structural integrity and insulation.


DETAIL 5: TYPICAL WALL SECTION

POLYSTYRENE ICF STEEL RE-BAR CONCRETE

The sketch above is a section a typical exterior wall.


DISTILLERY WAREHOUSE LOFTS ON-SITE OBSERVATION NOVEMBER 20

The photo above shows how the pre-cast hollow core concrete slabs are installed on the exterior and interior walls.


DETAIL 6: HOLLOW CORE CONCRETE FLOOR SLAB

POLYSTYRENE

MORTAR

HOLLOW TUBES This sketch depicts the simple shape of the concrete slab. Between slabs a mortar is placed to bind. The hollow tubes in the concrete greatly reduce the mass of the slabs without inhibiting the structural integrity. Most of the hollow tubes in the slab are filled with polystyrene.


DISTILLERY WAREHOUSE LOFTS ON-SITE OBSERVATION NOVEMBER 20

The photo above shows a victaulic piping system being installed in the structure.


DETAIL 7: VICTAULIC PIPING

Victaulic is a company that makes certain style of fittings for pipes that consist mainly of bolted clamps that seal the fittings. This style of pipe allows for a relatively fast and easy installation. This sketch of the piping system depicts a tee joint that is capped at one end. This easily allows for future expansion.

VBRACE SHEET METAL


DETAIL 8: WINDOW OPENING This sketch portrays the corner of a window before the window opening before the window is installed. Sheet metal is used wrapping from the interior to the exterior over the ICFS. Some windows are fitted with a VBRACE as depicted in the sketch.

CONCRETE FOUNDATION


DETAIL 9: WALL TO FOUNDATION This sketch depicts how the ICF walls meet the concrete foundation in an exterior doorway. A piece of wood was left in the ICF from the concrete pour.


DISTILLERY WAREHOUSE LOFTS OBSERVED FROM C DECEMBER 3

Observations All exterior and interior walls on the fourth floor have been poured with concrete as well as all window openings being installed. Windows on the first and second floor are being installed. Weather: -2oC, partly cloudy, snow


DISTILLERY WAREHOUSE LOFTS OBSERVED FROM B DECEMBER 8

Observations ICFs on the fifth storey are starting to be installed as well as the concrete floor slabs. All of the windows on first two levels and the sliding glass doors on the second level are now installed. Weather: -3oC, partly cloudy, snow


DETAIL 10: BALCONY SUPPORT

This photo depicts one of the sliding glass doors on the second level. Below the door, are three supports that will be for a small balcony.

This sketch shows how the balcony support is a short C-Channel beam of steel protruding from the building with a small steel plate.. Around the beam and plate are pieces of wood to support it in preparation for concrete being poured around it.
