As mentioned last week, the Department of Transportation has required us to perform certain work on the weekend associated with the Con Edison vault and the use of a street crane for construction on 450 W. 33rd Street.
On 33rd Street (near Dyer), we will be connecting the Con Ed vault to the sewer system on Saturday, February 14 and Sunday, February 15, from 7am through 6pm. This work will last for at least the next few weekends. This work involves hoe ramming, rock chopping and saw cutting and this will be noisy work.
In the Southwest lot on 31st near Dyer Avenue, workers will perform form work and do general site cleanup. This is not noisy work.
450 West 33rd Street
On 33rd Street, beginning on Friday night, February 13th, from midnight through 12 noon on Saturday, February 14th, we will be using a street crane to lift mechanical equipment onto the roof of 450 West 33rd Street. This work requires closing 33rd Street between Dyer Avenue and 10th Avenue for safety purposes.
As a reminder, the exterior renovation of 450 West 33rd Street continues and the planned time frames for facade concrete panel removals are as follows. The work will take place weeknights from 6pm to 2:30 am:
- Dyer Avenue: present -5/29/15
- 10th Avenue: 4/9/15 – 6/16/15
- 31st Street: 7/16/15 – 9/4/15
- 33rd Street: 7/21/15 – 9/4/15
As always, wherever possible, Brookfield is taking measures to reduce the impact of noise by using sound mitigating blankets, doing work in enclosed areas and using electric, instead of pneumatic, equipment and other methods.
