Building Update for Piedmont Atlanta Tower: Week of July 14-28

First Tower Crane Erected: Tower cranes are currently being erected in the fenced-off construction area. All three cranes will be erected by the end of September. Patients should not experience any greater amount of noise or vibration.

Major Site Excavation: Site excavation continues this week. Large equipment will be close to the East tower and the offices near the former 1-Center location. Work will be concentrated in the fenced-off area along Collier Road.

Trucks will exit onto Peachtree Road throughout the day and may cause brief intermittent traffic. Any lose 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: Rock blasting continues this week in the fenced-off construction area. Blasting will take place every day at 2:15 p.m.
