May 24, 2021 to June 4, 2021: Utility excavations will be conducted in the community center parking lots to investigate existing utilities in the area. The excavation areas will be closed off with cones and vehicular and pedestrian traffic will be maintained with traffic control at all times.
Building abatement begins
June 28, 2021 to July 2021: Vehicular and pedestrian access to Kelly Park and Beechwood School will remain as access to the buildings and pool will be closed to start soft demolition and abatement activities.
August 10, 2021 to October 2021: Demolition of the buildings will begin, which will have noise, vibratory and dust impacts to the surrounding area. Noise will comply with the City of Menlo Park noise ordinance for construction projects and dust will be mitigated by using the appropriate amount of water to spray active work areas.
Foundations and superstructure work
November 2021 to April 2022: Foundations and superstructure will be excavated, poured and erected which will mainly cause noise and vibratory impacts. Impacts will be caused by heavy machinery and cranes used to erect the building, as well as steel on steel strikes to get all of the superstructure connections in place in preparation for final welding. The foundation was poured in early March 2022.
Building interiors and sitework
May 2022 to January 2023: Building Interiors and sitework will be ongoing inside and out of the building superstructure. Sitework may have noise and dust impacts as we give the site its final shape and pour concrete sidewalks and asphalt roads.
Beechwood Parking Lot work
Summer 2022: Beechwood Parking Lot work will be targeted for summer 2022 to minimize the impacts to students and teachers as we update the existing parking lot with new utility infrastructure and fresh asphalt.
