Astor House Construction Update: 10/17/16

Work on the interior is beginning to wrap up. Beams have been installed on both second and first floors. Joist hangers are being connected to the beams with fasteners. Workers are completing some light finish work to the space including adding floor plates for walls and adding new blocking to strengthen the connection with the stair stringer. Concrete stairs have been poured in the north basement. Once cured, workers will complete forming the last sections of retaining wall. Shoring is scheduled to be removed on Weds 10/19, transferring the building’s load back to its stone walls and new beams. Upon conclusion of the interior, crews will shift outside to complete grading and drainage.
