Backstage Construction Update – August 8 – 14, 2016

This is a construction update for Backstage Condominium, 1 The Esplanade, August 8 – 14, 2016

Work is continuing this week along the northeast wall of the podium beside the Green P entrance laneway. There has been some excavation in progress along the front of the building which continues this week: crews are removing some steel supports which were installed during the construction of the foundation walls.  As these are removed, crews will re-waterproof the foundation walls and then back fill them. 

On the west side of the tower crews installing the porcelain tile have reached the 13th floor and this work continues with steady progress expected this week. On the east side of the tower, crews are continuing to install supports and insulation.  They have also reached the 13th floor and will progress to higher floors this week. As well, curtainwall replacement is continuing on the 5th and 6th floors at the southeast corner of the tower to replace sections damaged by last winter’s fire.

Interior work continues in amenity areas. Tiling is almost complete in both change rooms on 7th floor, while on the 5th floor taping and sanding is almost complete. Remaining unoccupied suites are continuing to be finished.  Construction management is preparing for the next round of occupancy at the end of August.  Suite inspections continue on various floors.
