123 Portland's underground has been progressing
Since our last update, construction of the 123 Portland underground has been progressing and we are currently working on the decking for the ground floor! Our first concrete pour of the ground slab will be completed in June which is a big milestone for the construction team. The ground floor is a very complex slab with drops & beams and tonnes of infrastructure tying the garage & future upper levels together.
The Formwork trade works in a sequence of verticals-to-horizontals in order to build the structure. The M&E trades follow behind to drop sleeves (for future Mechanical piping) or run conduit between the bottom & top layers of steel. Once complete, the Formwork trade pours concrete. Freshly poured slabs are supported by shoring jacks below. As construction progresses and shoring jacks are reduced or removed, M&E trades are able to start doing their main building work below while the forming process continues up above.
All City services & under slab drainage has been installed. Next up is working with both Toronto Hydro & Enbridge to bring in our main power & gas feeds to the building.
