This week at the construction site they have brought in more equipment. This is a good sign as it means that some of the rough grading is finishing up and they will transition to the fine grading stage on some areas of the site.
One of the new pieces of equipment on the side is a large scraper. This is a great piece of equipment for picking up dirt at one place and dropping at another. It was busy scraping up dirt where they were doing some leveling and taking it to another place where they needed some fill.
This are of the lot is pretty well leveled off. It will be interesting to see what the next step will be in this area. In the short term this area will be the parking lot for the Zeiss Innovation Center, but in a later phase there will be a second building and a parking garage. I am sure that they are looking ahead and will make sure they do some work now that will minimize the ground work they will need to do later.
The other end of the lot where the building will be built has many piles of dirt and also piles of material that had to be cleared from the site. I am sure that it will look much different at the end of this week as they continue with the rough grading at this end.
However, it might rain this week which will slow things down a bit.
