Crescent Stonewall Station
Charlotte’s first vertically joined Whole Foods will be part of the new 3.6 acre Crescent Stonewall Station mixed use project. Our package included the 10-story high rise, nine levels of parking, and 91,000 sq ft of a 30-ft elevated beam/slab podium that supports 5 stories of wood framing over a Whole Foods/Whole Body retail shell. The project was completed within the 52-week schedule.
Due to the nature of the design assist project, our team has grown and adapted to handle daily drawing changes and design updates. To ensure the project’s success and keep a high level of accuracy, our team has unitized our detailed daily planning process to identify and communicate all changes to both field leads and the craft field workers.
Bordering the Lynx light rail n the west, I277 on the south and Stonewall Street to the north, the construction site itself created challenges. Our team overcame the tight logistics by working with the general contractor, during preconstruction, to carefully place and utilize multiple tower cranes and placing booms. The hoisting and placing plan made it possible to move large amounts of materials in a way that sustained a pace of 35,000 to 40,000 square feet of deck per week, reaching a peak performance of 53,000 square feet in one week. The up-front planning, coupled with the ongoing daily planning and preparation process utilized by Lithko, kept the project schedule intact.
