Im very cautious here.. i know from past experience that just when i think i can turn my eye for a minute.. thats when things go bad. Its especially hard, sometimes walls get tied in wrong and things aren't quite up to my standards.. but a few minor adjustments bring it all back to where it needs to be.

Ahhhh nope. Treat subs just like that, subs. They pay for parking, they make their own arrangements. There is no such thing as 'some subs'. Play this game and next thing you know you are servicing their tools and providing their safety provisions.

You're the GC, not the subs guardian angel. They need extras, tell them to build it into contract. ALL my sites have next to ZERO laydown. They make do without me coddling them. I didn't budget it for them, i expect them to do that themselves.

That makes no sense I pour gyp Crete all the time right to the finished painted drywall. No double bottom plate

Nope, 2 back to back 2x4 walls with 1.25" space between, off set studs, that's our sound proofing and firewalls

Re: Hi- Park


Standard detail here as well for party walls unit to unit. Double 5/8". Single stud with RC and double rock on rated corridors.

We lightweight/gyp after rock. Solves tub problems with wall ratings/sequencing, among other things. We do however add acoustimat for further STC rating and run W/P barrier between gyp and rock. Not worth mold problems, which we have experienced in past.

I'm doing a large multi family now we are doing 5/8 everywhere hallways are rc channel. The unit side is double 5/8. The demising walls are one side double layer and the other side is hung on hat channel. Except for the shear walls that get OSB then 5/8. Ceilings are single layer in rc2

Roof!
Almost there . The top floor has a interesting canopy detail that we built on the wall before lifting .. If the rain would let up we could get a good chunk of it framed in a day

Re: Hi- Park


Roof has been on for a while now ... I just neglect to update this regularly.
It's nice to see it done!.. Waiting on some special hardware to finish up some decks but other then that we are finished . In the end it was a deceivingly challenging job .. Between trying to keep the building plumb and straight going up so high and working with a completely new bunch of guys I definitely gained a lot of knowledge and experience . Too many peculiar details in the building to talk about . All in all it was about 6.5 weeks from start to finish. Sure it's easy to say "wtf took so long" but the complexity of the building trumped the size, and until you see the job and everything that comes with it, it's hard to really get a feel for what we were up against .
I'm not afraid to admit that my expectations were very very different from the reality, that isn't a complaint by any means .. I wouldn't have it any other way.
If I could do it again I know what I would do differently. I have big hopes for our new crew .. All though not all guys are proficient in framing , they are all smart , reliable and can take direction fairly well.. Next job ..2..3 I want to continue to work on establishing a flow so that everyone knows SOP and can learn to work together better to improve both quality and speed . I want to continue to move in the direction of large wood frame construction, our next job is 25k feet!

Windows are going in. Plumber is starting and we have taken on the steel framing as well! Our roofing crew is scheduled to start the flat roof this week and all concrete waterproofing !

This building is going to get some real attention once it is completed, I look forward to seeing it complete .. Orange stucco and all😐Hi- Park-imageuploadedbycontractortalk1431313235.432013.jpgHi- Park-imageuploadedbycontractortalk1431313254.087483.jpgHi- Park-imageuploadedbycontractortalk1431313271.026555.jpgHi- Park-imageuploadedbycontractortalk1431313292.618155.jpgHi- Park-imageuploadedbycontractortalk1431313320.880662.jpgHi- Park-imageuploadedbycontractortalk1431313344.586113.jpg

Spazzar bar is not necessary in that short of a stud. If you don't use it you will save man hours and material cost. It can account to thousands
