Structural demolition of Building D is nearly complete as the last pieces of structure are being sorted. This work will be complete the week of November 23rd. Once complete, foundation removals will begin on buildings D, F, and H, all of which are still intact.
The crushing operation has mobilized. Concrete block and other building elements are being crushed and recycled. These materials will remain on site and be used to fill in the voids left by the Goldwater buildings’ foundations.
Structural demolition will soon begin on two Phase II buildings. Building G is a small connector building that will be removed, along with Building J, the southernmost building. By removing these buildings, additional internal roadways will open up and congestion will be eased.
Early infrastructure work on in the west roadway will begin, including the installation of a new electrical ductbank and the relocation of a water supply line.
