Building Update for Piedmont Atlanta Tower: Week of August 4-11

Tower Cranes: Tower cranes are currently being erected in the fenced-off construction area. All three cranes will be erected by the end of September. The first the crane currently stands near the MSC parking lot and the second is being installed by next Saturday. This will be the tallest crane on the site.

Noise Levels Outside East Tower: Crews continue work outside the East tower and the offices near the former 1-Center location. Patients and staff may feel slight vibrations and hear drills this time.

Major Site Excavation: Site excavation continues this week near the drilling sites. Trucks will exit onto Peachtree Road throughout the day and may cause brief intermittent traffic. Any loose dirt is removed from the trucks before exiting the construction site to ensure they do not compromise safety of patients, visitors or general traffic.

Rock Blasting: Crews are currently excavating the site for rock blasting needs. Blasts will take place as needed at 2:15 p.m.
