BUILDING PROGRESS( LOS FAROS DE PANAMA)

Retaining Walls

RODIO has spent this month carrying out repairs as per the list of exceptions provided by PROINTEC.

Second Phase of Excavation

Clay, weathered rock and bedrock continue to be excavated this month. The area has been perforated explosions were carried out in order to remove rock. The land upon which the towers will be built still contains residual water and is also being dried out. Once the water has been removed, it will be cleaned of sediments in order to leave the land completely clear.

To date 85,372.25 m3 of clay, 42,332.33 m3 of weathered rock and 18,198.37 m3 of bedrock have been excavated, representing 97.92% of the total excavation work due to be carried out in the second phase of excavation.


Foundations, (conventional) perimeter walls, underground networks and waterproofing works

The contract with the Mexican construction company ICA (Associated Civil Engineers) for the construction of the foundations, the retaining walls in the back podium area, the underground networks and waterproofing works, which are to be completed in a 6-month period, has been formalised.

The works are forecast to begin mid-December, once the excavation works have been finalised. At the end of November, ICA Panama received the approved foundation plans (approval for the foundation plans). The next step will be to request the building permit in order to commence the works as soon as possible.

They will start with this phase during this month:

Foundations, (conventional) perimeter walls, underground networks and waterproofing works

The contract with the Mexican construction company ICA (Associated Civil Engineers) for the construction of the foundations, the retaining walls in the back podium area, the underground networks and waterproofing works, which are to be completed in a 6-month period, has been formalised.

The works are forecast to begin mid-December, once the excavation works have been finalised. At the end of November, ICA Panama received the approved foundation plans (approval for the foundation plans). The next step will be to request the building permit in order to commence the works as soon as possible.

-----------------------------------------------------------

I think that means that we will see the construction of the above ground floors during July or August of this year, after the fundations and all the underground work is done.

That's the best webcam we have in Panama so far, it's practically a real-time feed.

The first part consisted on dragging, impermeabilization and building perimetral walls all around the terrain as you can see in the pic, this is not an easy task for such a massive complex (you can see how big is the area), right now they are starting the second phase that for what I understand you think is the first one, that consist in the building itself, I hope this clears any doubt about the phases of a project.
We will see plenty of machines working on this terrain in a few days
