Berkeley Square Drive-Through Shelter

By December 7, 2011No Comments

As part of the master plan of the new Berkeley Square Manor House, they are providing a covered drive-up entry. This will allow access to the new Manor House due to open early next year. Attached are pictures of the process which is a kit of parts. First are the structural steel columns that are shown being set with the crane, leveled and fastened to embedded bolts in the concrete.

Once these are set and the electric is run up the side, a decorative fiberglass base, column and cap will be add over the structural steel column, as seen laying on the ground.

Once the decorative columns are in place, the shelter, as seen on the truck and rendered in the drawing, will be unloaded and assembled in place.

This project is another good reminder of how important communication & coordination is. The shelter was shipped from out of state, the decorative columns were ordered and the columns were fabricated locally. In addition, the electrician is on-hand as well, running the conduit up the side once the columns are set. The crane can be used most efficiently when such things are in place.
