As we continue to deck at ESL, contractors have poured foundations and constructed the retaining walls that define each terrace. The decked forestage will be the first prefabricated part to be shipped to Clifton Forge early next week. The rest of the pieces will make their way to the site over the next couple of weeks as we push hard to finish by Memorial Day weekend for our grand opening.
Anchor bolts are cast into the concrete to receive the steel columns due to arrive next week.
The design/buildLAB at Virginia Tech is a Project Based Experiential Learning program focused on the research, development and implementation of innovative construction methods and architectural designs. Students collaborate with local communities and industry experts to conceive and realize built architecture projects that are both educational and charitable in nature. The blog is run by design/buildLAB students, who are currently designing and building a pedestrian bridge in Clifton Forge, VA.
