Demolition work continues on Building B, with structural demolition having recently begun. It is anticipated that within the coming two weeks, the last standing Goldwater building will be down on the ground.
Foundation removal of Building E is ongoing and will continue for the month of April. As the foundation is removed working north to south, the backfill operation will follow closely behind.
Barging operations will be in full swing the week of April 6th. It will take approximately three days to load all the mixed metals that are being removed from the site for recycling. Immediately following that operation will be a full barge of construction and demolition waste leaving the island.
Excavation operations are ongoing at the First Academic Building (FAB). As the demolition proceeds south, additional FAB footprint is uncovered to allow for excavation to continue. A limited number of concrete trucks will be used the week of April 6th to pour mud mats. Foundation work is expected to start the week of April 13th, which will include a larger number of concrete trucks.
Cornell’s work in the roadways is largely complete for the time being. Con Edison continues to work within and surrounding the site to remove electrical cables that are no longer in use. Their work is expected to continue for another 1-2 weeks.
Excavation and rock crushing operations continue in the Central Utility Plant (CUP) footprint, as well as the vault area to the immediate south.
