Thorp Building Construction
"As you all are aware, the cold snap of Fall came much earlier than expected this year. This has become a challenge for the contractors working on our site improvement project. Frost in the ground, early snowfall, and the pending season closure of the bituminous plants have started to poise a great risk on finishing our project on time. While one option is to end construction for the season and start back up in Spring again, this would ultimately create more future impact on our building and the tenant’s within. Multiple stages of construction means dragging the project on further, higher fees with re-mobilization, and more closures come Spring time. To keep the project on schedule and minimize future impacts, the contractors are shifting to a more aggressive schedule. Next week the contractors will install curbs, backfill, finish grade, and hope to have the first layer of pavement down by Friday (11/17). The final layer of pavement & striping is tentatively scheduled for the following Monday (11/20). This aggressive schedule means the back lot and 1620 south lot will be closed most of next week during business hours. It will be our most challenging shutdown, yet afterwards will allow us use of the parking lot and bring us to the home stretch of the project! Parking will be available after 5pm each day in the current “Phase 2” area, except for Thursday (11/16), when the entire lot will receive a finish grade for Friday’s pavement. 

Please see the map below for specifics on closure dates, and work zones. Signage will be posted around the building for your convenience. 

We appreciate all your patience as we continue to move forward on this improvement project." --Thorp Building
