Installation of the sloped roof vapor barrier has been completed in Sequence 3. Installation of plywood and insulation on the sloped roof is continuing in Sequence 1. Flat roof installation has been completed in Sequence 1 and is ongoing in Sequence 2 and 3. The atrium curtain wall installation will be complete next week. Exterior framing continues to move into Sequence 3. Sheathing on the west side has progressed into Sequence 3. Inside the building, ductwork installation continues to progress to the north on first, second, and third floor. Overhead mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and interior framing continues on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd floors. Fire protection main installation began earlier last week in sequence 2 and 3.
As we continue with the exterior envelope of Sequence 1, it is essential the quality is documented and discussed. To ensure a quality envelope, the walls are inspected daily by a checklist created of all the necessary line items to be carefully looked at. If there are any issues or concerns, they are documented and dealt with by the contractor and trades as soon as possible. For instance, if there is an air barrier deficiency, it would need to be corrected before insulation is installed.
