July 2015 Project Update


Interior demolition has started on floors for the YMCA, as well as on floors for the residential component. Footings are being poured in the basement for the new load-bearing walls. Additionally, plumbers are scheduled to start under-slab plumbing rough-ins for the locker rooms in the next few weeks, and plaster repair in the entry lobby is expected to begin in early August.


Parksite is truly starting to take shape, as exterior painting is nearly finished and the roof deck construction continues. Half of the units are moving into the trim carpentry phase, with cabinets and tile being installed throughout. The other units trail behind in the mechanical, electrical and plumbing installation phases, as drywall installation is scheduled to begin next week.


At the historic rehab portion of the Mercer III Townhomes project, taking place at 14 Mercer, mechanical, electrical and plumbing rough-ins and drywall installation has been completed. Additionally, painting, tile setting, and flooring are underway. Meanwhile, the new townhomes are nearly fully framed, and window installation and mechanical, electrical and plumbing rough-ins are underway.


Work is progressing nicely at the Drop Inn Center Men’s Facility, as drywall has been installed in the staff area on the western half of the first floor and received a first coat of paint. Elsewhere in the building, block-fill is being painted on the block walls in the shelter areas, lighting fixtures are being hung on the first floor, and framing in the new clinic area is complete, and drywall installation has started. Additionally, new framing and support structures surrounding the new courtyard are currently being installed, and the installation of new windows on the building’s exterior is ongoing.


Drywall and window installation, along with interior and exterior painting, is underway in all three buildings that will comprise The Osborne. In addition, all mechanical and electrical rough-ins are complete.


Construction is nearing completion at Union Hall, which will serve as the new home of Cintrifuse, the Brandery, and CincyTech. Current construction on the project, which is scheduled to be finished in August 2015, includes façade repair, drywall installation, historic window installation, historic trim and window repair, and painting.
