Good Weather Keeps Project Moving On Schedule

At the TCMH Board of Trustees meeting last Tuesday, Wes Murray, chief executive officer at TCMH, reported to board members that “very good weather” has helped with construction progress at TCMH.  “We have already been able to do some things that were scheduled for a few weeks from now when the weather would typically be better,” he said.

After excavating the basement for the expansion addition, contractors have been drilling a series of holes in the ground, six feet into solid rock.  The holes are filled with rebar and a solidifying grout mixture.  Steel plates will be attached to the rebar, and concrete slab will be poured on top of the steel plates. 

The drill holes into solid rock ranged from 71 feet in depth to six feet in depth.  “We are anchored to a very secure foundation,” Murray explained.

Water mains have been tapped into on both sides of the new construction and electricity cables have been run to the location for the new generator.
