Excavation will continue for slabs and footings for the new clinic. Please be aware of dump truck entering in and out of the hospital parking lot, as they will be hauling out soil.
With this in mind, if you find yourself in the hospital parking lot while there are dump trucks coming and going and notice them starting to move, please make eye contact with the driver. This helps make them aware of your movements and the potential impact to their required maneuvers. Most of all, this helps keeps everyone on the job site and in the area safe.
There will also be digging this week to begin rerouting the current irrigation main waterline to accommodate for the new lecture hall and clinic. At this time, you might also notice a small amount of ground piping work that will be taking place this week.
Expect a little bit of noise this week, a portion of asphalt will be removed from where the future clinic will stand.
As site prep continues for the new clinic and lecture hall, this week you will notice a little more light shining into the current Magruder Hall. Trees at both site locations have been removed, this week the stumps and logs will be removed and work will begin to clear bushing and land.
Please be aware when using the hospital parking, there will be removal of a concrete sidewalk and the start of excavation for footings and slabs for the clinic.
Throughout the week, we may also notice a bucket truck working on site, this is to install temporary power to the construction trailer.
There will also be some civil work started, as pot holing for sewer lines will also begin this week.
Tree Removal will continue to take place over the next week, the main areas of tree removal will be located on the future sites for the clinic and lecture hall. This will be near the main entrance to the animal hospital and the grass lot just north of the Magruder B2 parking lot. Steps have been taken to protect pedestrians at both locations.
Also expect to see the beginning of excavation just north of the Magruder B2 parking lot once tree removal is complete, expect normal construction noise.
Electrical work will also be taking place throughout the site and inside the existing Magruder building. This includes the relocation of existing light poles and electrical work inside Magruder. Also expect a notification for an electrical shut down for a tie in.
