-The assessment established a baseline of current site conditions; data regarding ambient air/water/soil quality, background noise levels, meteorological phenomena, and terrestrial habitats and their associated fauna and flora were collected.

In addition, finishing the detailed water circulation study and marine survey of the impact that the canal will cause on Obhur Creek.
and according to these studies and survey's the have modified the master plan.
so basically that what they have achieved through 2011..
Really great news

Dear Thank you

Hi all.

Thanks for the info Rody.

So there was cause for a change in plans because of the studies / surveys then. Being one of the parameters of the assesment was soil quality, the previous news of the failed soil test may have some merit.

Regardless, the assesments may be normal proceedure but the results warranted changes that although aren't abnormal, they did cause delays.

That's my take on it.


Ray.

zavatar, you were correct before. the digging of foundations involves piling. there is no need to distinguish between digging and piling when referring to this.

Or piling, then digging through the ground while using the piles as the supports, then pouring the basement slabs and jump starting the core.
I have got to design something taller than this and I'm only 13.

I have an idea for the photo updates...
Somebody local to the site would install a live streaming web camera looking right towards the site and we would never complain again!
