That's a pretty big hole ;even by Langford's standards.

This sure seems like a lot of Re-bar. I wonder if they need such a large footing to support the weight of the roof top pool?

the answer is a bit complicated.
to cut down on the amount of slab bands in the suites (to allow head room), there are a few big slab bands which transfer the load to this footing, if i recall correctly.

That looks like the core of the building... where the elevator shaft will rise...

i found this blurb on the times colonist website, buried in with a story about oak bay clotheslines:

A whole lotta shaking going on: You want concrete, Langford's got concrete, or at least it's on order for Wednesday. Bob Gill's Reflections project is having a massive concrete pour over one day that will be even larger than anything completed at Save On Foods Arena. One hundred truckloads will fill a hole that's almost 186 square metres -- roughly the size of a hockey rink -- and more than six metres deep. Soil conditions, which are more of a gravel composition in Langford, require the extra concrete. Also required for the seven-storey condo and commercial project are 181,436 kilograms of rebar. The order for the concrete is to go, which means two trucks rumbling up every 10 minutes to the site near Hoffman Avenue and Veterans Memorial Parkway. And once the concrete starts flowing, there's no stopping. Those working the pump won't have a lunch break for more than 12 hours if relief crews don't show up.

it is not 6 metres deep though, in 1, maybe 2 spots it is, but not throughout.

wait, i'm reading that wrong, the hole is 6 metres deep, i thought they meant portions of concrete to be poured, and i was thinking in feet as well

Right on. I've been wondering what the status of that project was.

I guess a crane will be going up soon(ish)?

Funny to see the journilists of the west shore finally grasping a little bit about the development industry! Though they still have a long way to go!

Drove by here the other day and was surprised to see that the construction above the first floor is wood frame not steel and concrete. Perhaps the taller portion will be?

yes, the taller protion will be steel and concrete, as well as a few suites on the lower portion.....they use wood where they can because it is cheaper.

Who's being a negative basher?

This is a forum where people take pictures of developments under construction and post them. Welcome to the forum. Please feel free to take your own pictures and post them. You can add Happy, Positive comments if you would like to.

We are a free spirited bunch and appreciate all points of view if someone doesn't like the building you are working on or designed try to refute their comments in a way to show why you think they are wrong but please don't attack someone personally.

Hey guys, don't take any offense to my comments. I just don't understand why one person spends most of his posts on negative comments. That being Ressen........not just reflections but other projects as well. I am wondering what his or her agenda is. With real professional people spending huge cake on marketing design and sales it seems that negative bashers really do have some insecure program running within. Thats just how I see it. I do enjoy your updates and info and look forward to more. Thanks team

Hunh. Of all the people to rip on for being negative, you picked Ressen? That's almost amusing.
