Construct Tomorrow is a program intended to provide students information about apprenticeship career training and job opportunities in the construction business. Gresser, along with the Local 1 Bricklayers and Allied Craft workers, set up multiple booths allowing south metro students to get hands on experience laying brick and stone.
The original design for the slab on grade at The Lock Up Self Storage called for twelve inches of concrete reinforced with 55 pounds per cubic yard of steel fibers. PrīmXComposite requires steel fibers in the design as well, so this was a perfect opportunity to suggest an alternate. After the design was completed by the engineers, an eight inch PrīmXComposite slab is able to exceed the base bid slab. The cost savings and the benefits of a jointless floor made this PrīmXComposite alternate the solution the owner chose.
The State Capitol Remodel project is a complex project due to the limited space onsite and the tight corridors inside. The remodel is focused on renovating the building while maintaining the historical aesthetics. The pictures below show the shoring required during the renovation as well as a completed brick arch. This project will continue through the entire year of 2016.
Beautifully laid brick and stone dress the face of the front, exterior of the new locker rooms. These brick and stone perfectly match the color and pattern of the existing masonry veneer. 150,000 brick will be added to the veneer of this expansion. It will take over 33,000 labor hours to place all the brick and block on the high school addition.
Started washing the brick, stone, and precast today at Minnesota Veterans Home in Minneapolis. This is an interesting progression picture showing the masonry veneer after its washed, during the washing, and before the wash. Gresser masons installed 27,000 brick, and 2,000 stone pieces to dress this beautiful addition to the MN Vets building 17. We’ll be finishing up our scope of the work sometime this fall.
