Foundation April ’09

With the excavation of the site complete, the difficult process of building the foundation begins at the rear of the property. In total, about 260 yards of concrete were poured, reinforced by a tied rebar beam cage. The varying grade elevations add to the difficulty, requiring one of our retaining walls to stand nearly 20 feet tall. This wall, like most others for this project, were constructed using a method called shotcrete, a process that involves spraying the concrete under pressure and smoothing the walls by hand.
