As with other larger equipment, the size of the trucks required for hauling such equipment triggers travel time restrictions required by the City of San Francisco. Contractors will make every effort to minimize noise associated with the pickup, however, there will likely be noise and back-up safety beacons. We apologize for the disruption and inconvenience.


5/13/2019 Update:

Concrete Mat Pour

Construction at the USF Res Hall site is entering a new phase: Mass excavation for the Lone Mountain residence hall is nearly complete. The next major activity will be the installation of the mat slab foundations and podiums for the east and west structures.

The mat pour process is lengthy, involving equipment set up, delivery of concrete by trucks throughout the day, pumping, delivery, finishing, curing, and break-down. Separate pour dates are required to allow each slab section to cure before further work is done. We estimate the most impactful part of this phases will occur over 11 days scheduled over the next few months.

Concrete mat pours are an unavoidably disruptive and noisy process. The size of a foundation slab requires continuous delivery of concrete to ensure the integrity of the structure. Once started, the pour for each slab must continue until completion. The time required for each slab will vary between 9 and 15 hours in a given day, depending on the volume of concrete required.

Devcon and USF have been working together for several months to seek ways to minimize disruption to our neighbors. On Tuesday, April 16, we met with neighbors from University Terrace and Ewing Terrace Associations to look at alternatives:  should we schedule fewer days and longer hours or plan for many more days and shorter hours?  We also asked for input on whether or not the pours should happen on weekdays or on Saturdays. The consensus from the neighborhood representatives was to schedule fewer days for longer hours, on Saturdays when possible.

Please see the chart below for the proposed pour dates. Devcon has submitted an application to the City for a permit to work beyond the City’s normal construction hours (7 am - 8 pm).

The first pour date is this Saturday, May 18, starting at 6 am. All dates are subject to change depending on conditions; for example, there is a prediction for rain this Saturday, May 18 which may affect the schedule.

We will make every effort to minimize the impact of this process, however, we realize that it will be challenging. Devcon will retain professional traffic control crews to manage traffic, pedestrians, and the concrete truck activity. We will do our best to minimize further disruption. If you have any questions, please contact us at neighbor@usfca.edu.

Dynamic Load Testing of Auger Cast Piles

A series of dynamic tests are scheduled to be applied to the auger cast piles of the west building on Thursday and possibly Friday this week April 11 and 12. Dynamic load testing is a method to assess a pile's bearing capacity by applying a dynamic load, i.e. a falling weight, to the pile head and testing the effects on the pile.

Five piles will be tested. Each pile will be hit 3 times. It is possible that the impact from a hit might be felt at some distance from the location of the test pile.

Testing on Thursday is expected to go from 9am-6pm. If needed, Friday testing will start at 9 am and could go until 6 pm.

Work on Water Lines

The work on campus water lines and connections to City services on Turk, originally scheduled to start this week, has been postponed until January. The work on Turk will involve trenching, temporary re-routing of the sidewalk, installation of two new manholes, and temporary and final paving. We will share the work dates with you when they are finalized. 

Schedule

USF recently made the decision to change the construction start time to 7 am, M-F, and 8 am Saturdays to allow more trucks to work to be performed on a daily basis and to meet the overall schedule. Currently, trucks off haul excavated earth to a site two to three hours away from campus. The expanded timeframe will allow significantly more loads to be removed from the site on a daily basis. For example, a truck will be able to make three trips daily instead of two; multiply that by 30 or more trucks daily and the progress is significant. Ultimately, this should reduce the total number of days required to complete the excavation phase.  While we understand and regret the disruption, our intent is to potentially shorten the overall duration of the project. 

Holiday Schedule

Dec 23, 24, 25 - No work on site

Dec 26-29  - Regular work hours

Dec 30,31/Jan 1 - No work on site

Jan 2 - 5 - Regular work hours
