Pouring Concrete on Roof Level
We have substantially completed the concrete structure with minor work related to the pool deck remaining.
Masonry is substantially complete with cast-stone installation on-going in the balconies, balcony railings will follow. Metal panels are 50% complete and should be substantially complete by early May.
Drywall is substantially complete in the units and the amenity spaces on the ground floor level. Drywall work is on-going at the penthouse level and the upper corridors.
Cabinet installation is roughly 90% complete with countertops, tile and flooring installation following right behind.
The major undergrounding work is complete. Comcast and PEPCO have work inside the fence remaining which should not affect traffic along Moorland Lane.
Because traffic is lighter during the COVID-19 crisis, the County has extended partial lane closures to between 7 AM and 5 PM, provided that at least one lane in each direction remains open. When work is complete each day, the work will be plated and the closed lanes will reopen.
Site work has started on the eastern side of our building. The work should wrap around the south, along Edgemoor Lane and move north on Arlington Road. As the hardscape progresses, daily lane shut downs will be scheduled with the County to crane landscape material to the roof deck for our pool deck as well as craning two sculptures to the elevated courtyards on Arlington Road. Notices will be posted in this website.
Worksite Safety Precautions
We are continually reviewing our safety precautions on the worksite and making adjustments as needed. Our on-site safety team-members place wristbands on each person entering the site after confirming they are temperature free with a noncontact thermometer. The wristbands change color each day. We also maintain a daily log of each employee screened.
All workers are required to wear masks. We also installed additional hand sanitizer stations.
Signs have been posted at each gate with information on preventing the spread of the virus, and at bathrooms with hand washing recommendations. In addition to ensuring adequate supplies of hand sanitizer at the portable toilets, a hand-washing sink stocked with soap and paper towels is now on the site.
Everyone working on Maizon Bethesda is frequently reminded of the need for regular hand-washing and maintaining social distancing. People showing signs of being sick are instructed to stay home. And anyone who shows signs of being sick while on the site will be sent home.
Our Maizon Bethesda construction team continues to monitor local and national recommendations with regards to Covid-19 and will make adjustments as the situation progresses.
