Deluca Project #5

The crews have been very busy since the last update. The last of the 50’3″ ICF fire wall had been poured and the steel beams and columns placed and ready for roof trusses.

We started off with installing Flat Top trusses that are 8’6″ high x 70′ long.The crews pre-built the sections on the ground and we craned them into place. Once the flat tops were installed the Mono truss were placed on top of the flat top. The 13′ high at the peak Mono Truss will give the slope of the roof towards the back. The front retail area is also getting all the Flat Top trusses installed.

While two of the crews where working on the trusses one crew was starting to wrap the Tyvek House wrap for weather proofing. We added and extra layer of 4×8-1″ plastispan insulation to the exterior before wrapping with the house wrap for added R value. The total R value for the walls on this building will be a R27 as per building code.



Deluca Project update #4

With this great weather we are having this week the guys are hard at with the final few pours on the fire wall. Yesterday was a quick hour & half pour into 8ft of the Plasti Fab ICF wall.

We will have 16ft left on the fire wall to set up and pour then the concrete work for walls will be complete. Once the walls have all been completed our next step is to start installing all the roof trusses.
