The 45-acre expansion of Plantation Estates, a retirement community in Matthews, North Carolina, will double the current capacity of living space. Our scope includes foundations, walls, slab on grade, podium slab, and slab on metal deck on our turnkey total package of five of the new identical buildings. Recently with our dedication to the job, we have been awarded two additional duplicate buildings.
The wet North Carolina winter brought rain and snow through the months of December and January, making the large site difficult to traverse and move materials. With the addition of access roads, put in by our partner, Edifice Inc. and doubling up on manpower and formwork, we were able to finish the original five buildings 20 days ahead of schedule. The support of key Field Leads, specializing in footings, walls, and decking, and their performance of the Project Execution Process also helped to ensure an aggressive and safe timetable.
By holding our Customer Plan Presentation early, we were able to create a strong relationship with both Edifice Inc. and the owner, Acts Retirement-Life Communities. This helped to visualize the site and ensure the job ran smoothly.
