Luxury Living in Lafayette, CA

Back in October 2017 I blogged about the beginning of a new project we are all very excited about. It was not much of a POST , just a ground breaking photo and an artists rendering of the future finished multi unit development.

Here we are in January 2018 doing some interesting things as the building begins to take shape. One of our tasks is the conduit to run infrastructure wire for all the units through. Think about looking up in a parking garage and seeing all the pipes hung from the ceiling. Some of those hold wire.

This is called a WOOD KNOCKER!

It, in the fullness of time, becomes the anchor to hang our conduit from.  It is punched down into the plywood form and concrete is poured.

Here are some of ours. Other contractors using Wood Knockers use different colors so we can tell who is who for future installation use.

Here you can see the large concrete footing.

Once the concrete is poured, the plywood form is removed and we all have our color coded hangers to secure our conduit to.

This part of the job is BIG and a bit difficult to explain.  I’ll post more pictures post concrete pour.
