Dear Neighbors,

Thank you for your interest in the Leggett Building construction project at the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus. We will strive to keep our neighbors informed about significant construction events with this weekly email notification.

Upcoming activities are listed below:

  • Logistics
    A permit for a field office was submitted in early August. Once the permit is approved, a trailer for the construction manager’s team will be installed on site within one to two weeks.
  • Upcoming Saturday Work
    Due to the high volume of rain which impeded work last week, Barton Malow will conduct work this Saturday, August 28, 2021. Activities will primarily include the removal of excess soil from the site and will take place between the hours of 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.
  • Earthwork
    Sheeting and shoring activities are underway and are expected to conclude by the end of this week. Cut and fill excavation for the new building footprint is underway and is also expected to conclude by the end of this week, depending on weather conditions. This includes continued excavation and grading of the site as well as removal of the materials from excavation.
  • Concrete
    Staging for concrete work will commence starting next week. Beginning August 30, concrete equipment will mobilize on site. Concrete installation will begin after mobilization is complete. These activities will include delivery and installation of a crane to be used for the offloading of materials, major rebar (long steel rods) deliveries, and setting up additional materials. As discussed, these delivery vehicles are expected to be able to maneuver and be managed within the site, and they will enter and exit on Fenton Street.

Thank you,
