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:

  • Saturday Work
    Due to the high volume of rain this week, Barton Malow will conduct work this Saturday, September 4. Activities will primarily include the removal of excess soil from the site and will be actively coordinated to control truck routes. This work will take place between the hours of 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. and will follow all requirements of the noise ordinance.
  • Earthwork
    Sheeting and shoring activities are complete. Cut and fill excavation for the new building footprint is nearing completion and is expected to conclude next week. This includes continued excavation and grading of the site as well as removal of the materials from excavation.
  • Concrete
    Staging for concrete work is underway and concrete equipment is mobilizing on site. Concrete installation will begin after mobilization is complete. These activities include delivery and installation of a crane to be used for the offloading of materials, major reinforcing bar (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.
  • 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.
  • Labor Day
    There will be no work on the site on Monday, September 6, in observance of the Labor Day holiday. We hope that everyone has a safe and relaxing long weekend!
