Site Update: Month Overview (11/20/13- end of year)

Construction of our Asheville Brewery is beginning.  We will provide month overviews and bi-weekly updates here. Building is a dynamic process. Changes will happen and we'll do our best to keep you posted of things that will impact the community. Please subscribe to this blog to have these updates sent directly to your email inbox. See a timeline and more info on staying informed.

The building process will be a challenging time and we thank you for your patience and cooperation. There will be noise, trucks and dirt.  We especially thank the neighbors immediately adjacent to our site. If you have an address within  mile of the site, your household will be receiving a letter with more information and contacts in January.

We have provided an anticipated community impact scale that is subjective, though with the intention of providing an overall sense of what to expect. The scale runs 1 (less impact) – 5 (greater impact).

MONTH OVERVIEW -  November 20 - end of 2013

 

WEEK OF 11/18/13 - Erosion Control + Site Mobilization

Anticipated community impact: 1 of 5

Aside from seeing activity on site, there will be very little impact on the community in terms of sound, smell, and traffic this week.

Adolphson & Peterson is moving back onto the site, installing erosion control measures and mobilizing for work to begin.

 

THANKSGIVING WEEK 11/25/13 - Continued Site Mobilization

Anticipated community impact: 1 of 5

There will be less work on site this week due to the holiday week.

 

WEEK OF 12/2/2013 - Equipment Arrival + Safety Training

Anticipated community impact: 2 of 5 (trucks)

Equipment Arrival There will be 15-20 deliveries of over-sized loads of construction equipment arriving at the site by way of Haywood Road. They prefer to deliver in off hours, but for safety purposes, this equipment needs to be moved during daylight hours, which are limited this time of year. The equipment will be transported at different times, not all at once.

New Belgium-mandated Safety Training  Contractors and subcontractors will be receiving site condition, and environmental health and safety training.

 

WEEK OF 12/9/2013 - Concrete Grinding + Site Clearing

Anticipated community impact: 3 of 5 (noise and trucks)

Concrete Grinding Concrete on site is being excavated and ground to reuse as soil stabilization and in other applications; some of the unusable concrete pieces will be hauled off-site.

Site Clearing To clear the site, usable trees will be salvaged and unusable trees will hauled off-site in dump trucks. On-site dirt moving will begin.
